Dwayne Walker, a Bronx clothing designer, is suing Jay-Z for $7 million in unpaid royalties for designing Roc-A-Fella's logo. The copyright infringement suit was filed in Manhattan Federal Court last Thursday, as Walker claims he created the design. The suit claims that Walker came up with the logo in 1995 when Roc-A-Fella was just starting out. He saw what label co-founder Damon Dash had in mind for the logo and said he could do better.
There has been no official comment on the matter yet by Jay-Z. Perhaps he's wondering what took Walker almost two decades to decide to go to court.
