Record Label, Chocolate City has sued rapper Nas and Mass Appeal Records’ Ronnie Goodman over an alleged breach of contract.
The record label, which is led by MI Abaga accused Nas of going against a $50,000 agreement to collaborate with MI on a song titled ‘Man’.
The suit claimed that Nas has refused to deliver his verse years after the payment was made.
Chocolate City has demanded a million dollars in damages for breach of contract as well as fifty thousand dollars for unjust enrichment.
The lawsuit was filed by the label’s attorney, KC Okoli, in a New York Supreme Court.
The suit read, “On or about September 4, 2013, the defendants delivered by email, the first version of an audio track dubbed the possible verse to CCL in Lagos, Nigeria. ‘
“The verse that was delivered as aforesaid did not contain any of the agreed-upon names, phrases and facts; moreover, it did not contain anything to indicate that same was a collaboration between NAS and M.l.
“Dissatisfied with the lyrical content and quality of the aforesaid ostensible recording by NAS, CCL insisted that specific language be used by NAS in the verse he was working on.
“Defendants agreed to make the required changes but explained that there would be some delay because NAS would be unavailable for several weeks due to prior business commitments.
“Ultimately, defendants did not make the required changes to comport with the agreement of the parties at the outset.
“Up to the present time, neither the edited verse nor the master recording has been delivered by the defendants to eeL.”
