It’s Roc-A-Fella for life!

Back in 2012, clothing designer Dwayne Walker decided to sue both Jay Z, Damon Dash, and Universal Music Group on the rights of the original Roc-A-Fella logo.

His claim was that he signed a contract with Dash that gave him royalties from the logo.
According to Reuters:

A federal judge has dismissed a $7 million lawsuit accusing Jay Z of breach of contract and copyright infringement against a Bronx, New York clothing designer who claimed to have created the logo for the rap star’s Roc-A-Fella record label.

In a decision on Monday, U.S. District Judge Andrew Carter in Manhattan said Dwayne Walker was not entitled to royalties under a contract allegedly signed two decades ago by Roc-A-Fella co-founder Damon “Dame” Dash.

Judge Andrew Carter wrote in his decision that because he couldn’t get enough witness testimony that, “this leaves only plaintiff’s own self-serving testimony that he drafted the contract, that he and Dash signed it, and that he lost track of it in 1998” while also claiming he waited too long to file a copyright claim by waiting five years.

Walker plans to appeal.
