An appeals court upheld a ruling in favor of Jay Z Wednesday after he was sued by a sound engineer, Billboard reports.

The Rap mogul won the initial decision in April after Chauncey Mahan filed a lawsuit claiming co-ownership of material from Jay Z’s Vol 3… The Life and Times of S. Carter album, including “Big Pimpin.” The case was first filed in July of 2014.

Mahan was also planning extortion against Jay Z earlier that year by preparing to sell what the rapper thought were lost tapes. The recordings were worth an estimated $15 million and $20 million. Mahan was caught by the police before the tapes went to auction.
