The GRAMMY-winning Detroit producer/songwriter Detail had a little moment with Drake in 2013, when he showed up on Drizzy's Nothing Was the Same track "305 to My City." Now TMZ's discovered a new lawsuit where Detail says Drake had his bodyguard, the oft-referenced Chubbs, break his jaw.

The story goes that in 2014, Aubrey asked Detail—né Noel Fisher—to produce exclusively for him. Smart ask, since the dude's credited on Beyoncé's "Drunk in Love," Nicki Minaj's "Lookin Ass" and Lil Wayne's "How to Love" and "No Worries" (he's got a guest spot on that last one). Detail declined; Drake felt dissed. He later reportedly invited Detail to his Calabasas home to do some more work together. "Detail says he arrived at 2 a.m.," TMZ writes, "and was met by Drake's bodyguard, Chubbs, who coldcocked him and broke his jaw."

Here's where the juiciness really explodes to Tropicana levels though:

"Detail says during the beating, Chubbs yelled, "I will beat all your asses, including your bitches. I don't give a fuck. I will hit you again. Do you think Drake is soft? You think Drake's a punk?"

No word on how much money Detail's seeking—or whether the Drake lawsuit will affect his relationship with the rest of Cash Money. In 2013, Detail produced six of the 13 tracks (and got his voice on three) on Rich Gang, a big YMCMB compilation album, including the first single, "Tapout."
