#BUSINESSNEVERPERSONAL :Jay-Z Sued Over Roc-A-Fella Logo


Jay-Z has been sued by the man that designed the Roc-A-Fella Records logo for unpaid royalties.

Dwayne Walker sued the music mogul for $7 million in a suit filed in Manhattan Federal court last week.

Former Roc-A-Fella Records head Damon “Dame” Dash and Kareem ‘Biggs’ Burke were included in the lawsuit where Walker claims he was to receive payments for designing the logo until 2015.

In the suit, he explained that he was paid $3,500 in 1995 for creating the logo design. He was then allegedly given 2% royalties for anything that carried the logo through the year 2015.

”The logo has become universally recognized as an iconic symbol of Jay-Z, one of the most successful recording artists in the history of popular music,” he said in his claim.

None of the former heads of Roc-A-Fella have commented on the suit.
