Rapper Jay-Z is being sued by a man who designed his Roc-A-Fella records logo. The man is suing Jay-Z for unpaid royalties.
Dwayne Walker is suing the Jay-Z for $7 million. The lawsuit was filed last week in Manhattan Federal Court.
According to AllHipHop, Damon Dash and Kareem Burke were also named in the lawsuit. Walker claims that he was supposed to get royalties for designing the logo up until the year 2015.
According to Reuters, the designer says he has been short-changed, regardless of an alleged deal that says Roc-A-Fella agreed to pay Walker around $3,500 for his design, as well as 2% royalties from any product that has the logo on it.
According to Zee, Jay-Z's logo has become an iconic symbol of Jay-Z and the logo is recognized around the world.
Roc-A-Fella records was founded by Jay-Z because he wanted to release his debut album 'Reasonable Doubt' but the label is now owned by Universal Music Group.
