Designer/rapper Ariza Obey sued the Dreams star in August, 2015, claiming he posted the photograph in question on his Instagram page in September, 2014, seven months before The Game supposedly lifted the snap for the cover of his song Ryda, which was released in April (15).

The picture in question features an underwear-clad couple face-to-face, with the topless female bracing her legs around her partner's waist. Both are wearing black ski masks, and have one arm extended, with the male holding a gold gun in his left hand.

The Game's cover art appeared to be the exact same photograph, except a beige background had been added, as well as a Parental Advisory warning and the title of the song in the the top left hand corner.

Obey claimed the 36-year-old had access to his original artwork, because the two men have mutual friends.

He was seeking monetary damages and an injunction barring The Game from using the photo. However, earlier this week (ends25Mar16), the parties reportedly reached a confidential settlement, according to
