Ruff Ryders' First Lady he was not compensated or rewarded due to lack of evidence he had anything to do with the tune.
Big Hutch, real name Gregory Hutchinson, claims he now has a case and he is suing to reclaim his share of royalties.
Releasing a statement to AllHipHop.com, he says, "I'm not trying to take away from what Eve has done, but I was a key in helping Eve create a hit record."
Bosses at Ruff Ryders Entertainment and its parent company Interscope Records have also been targeted in the suit.
