Jay-Z has just been hit with another lawsuit, the second in less than a month.
On the heals of being sued over his 2010 book Decoded, the Hip-Hop mogul now faces a lawsuit from a New York City clothing designer claiming he designed the now famous Roc-A-Fella logo back in 1995 when the record label first started and hasn’t been properly compensated.
Dwyne Walker claims that he had an agreement with Jay-Z and his former partners at Rock-A-Fella that said he would receive $3,500 upfront for designing the logo, along with 2% royalties from all products that carry the logo, until 2015, the New York Post reports.
Walker is seeking $7 million in unpaid royalties. The lawsuit claims copyright infringement stating,
“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.”
The logo features the letter R, a record and a champagne bottle.
