The creator of the Roc-A-Fella logo is suing Jay-Z for $7 million in unpaid royalties.
Roc-A-Fella is synonymous with the rapper, businessman, NBA team owner, Jay-Z, and now a New York designer is suing Jay-Z and Roc-A-Fella label partners for $7 million dollars in unpaid royalties for not being properly compensated for designing Roc-A-Fella’s logo.
As released by NYDailyNews, the designer, Dwayne Walker filed the suit yesterday claiming he has not received sufficient royalties for designing the logo. He claims that in 1995, Damon Dash had a logo in mind and Walker told him he could do better and created the Roc-A-Fella we all recognize today.
From the lawsuit, “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”.
