NEW YORK(RUSHPRNEWS)July 11, 2008-New York rap duo Mobb Deep have filed suit in a New Jersey court against their former manager claiming he owes them over a million dollars. According to TMZ.com, Prodigy and Havoc (born Albert Johnson and Kejuan Muchita) claim their ex manager, Norman Bell, used some of their tracks for some “best of” albums with out their consent. In addition to using their songs, they say Bell (who goes by the name Purfek Storm) also neglected to pay them.
Court documents released by TMZ say that the plaintiffs (Havoc and Prodigy) “have never given anyone permission or license to take the Unreleased Masters from [their] recording studios or to exploit the Unreleased Masters.”
Some of the songs mentioned in the lawsuit include “Thou Shall Not Kill,” “We Don’t Love Them Hoes,” “QB Meets Soutside,” and “Shed So Many Tears.”
At press time, there had been no comment from either Bell nor the Mobb Deep MCs.
