Here a suit, there a suit, everywhere a lawsuit for musicians these days. This time it’s Hova himself who’s going to have to lawyer up: Jay-Z and his former label partners at Roc-A-Fella Records have just been hit with a $7 millon lawsuit from clothing designer Dwayne Walker. See that Roc-A-Fella logo? Walker claims to have designed it in 1995, right when Jay-Z, Damon Dash and Kareem Biggs founded the label (and right before Jay released his classic Reasonable Doubt). Seventeen years later, Walker wants seven million in unpaid royalties.
Jay-Z may have written a song called “Can’t Knock The Hustle,” but he might have to make an exception with Dwayne Walker. [Complex]
