M.I suing Nas to Court to the tune of $1.1 Million - BellaNaijaRapper M.I and his label Chocolate City are suing to court hip-hop artist Nasir Jones, better known as Nas.

In a lawsuit obtained by Pulse, Chocolate City claims, in 2013, the sum of $50,000 was paid to Nas and a co-defendant Ronnie Goodman to secure a verse from Nas on M.I’s track “Man.”

The track was to feature in M.I’s album “Chairman,” and Nas’ verse was to contain the words, phrases and facts “M.I, Chocolate City, Nigeria, Queens, New York—NAS’s hometown—, Mandela, Trayvon Martin, and the struggles of Africans and African Americans.”

A verse dubbed the “possible verse” was sent to Chocolate City by the defendants, but did not contain any of the “agreed-upon names, phrases and facts,” nor did it contain anything to indicate it was a collaboration between Nas and M.I.

The verse was sent back, with the defendants agreeing to make the desired changes.

However, up until the present day, neither the edited verse nor the mastered recording has been sent to Chocolate City.

Chocolate City are demanding that the defendants pay to the sum of $1.1 million, with punitive damages and attorney’s fees, for their refusal to refund the initial $50,000, their refusal to send an edited verse or master recording, and for losses and damages suffered.

      That’s why these guys think they can do whatever they like and get away with it. I think MI has a good case here.

      So because he’s dealing with the “greatest of all time”, he shouldn’t sue for contract enforcement? rme and smh. The human mind is a beautiful thing to waste.

    They probably thought they were dealing with some local label that couldn’t touch them in their US of A. If all that has been said is true, Nas needs to pay up. Breach of contract is breach of contract.

    Proud of Choc City for not letting this go. Industries on the African Continent needs to let those outside of it know that the days of taking advantage are ending.
