Jay-Z Sued Over ‘Reasonable Doubt’ Royalties

Jay-Z is being sued by a man who claims to have helped him land a distribution deal for his Reasonable Doubt album.

In his lawsuit against Hov, Raynard Herbert claims that he used his connections to help Jay land a deal at Roc-A-Fella Records, and helped him master the album. Herbert claims that Jay was paying him the one percent royalties he was promised from 1998 until 2008, but hasn’t received money since.

“Herbert’s attorney Kevon Glickman claims the plaintiff ‘is not presently aware of the exact amounts of damages resulting from defendants’ breach’ but adds that ‘the sum of money is substantial,’” the site reads.

We still have to see how this will play out, but hopefully both parties settle this soon.
