Rapper M.I and His Label Chocolate City Are Suing Nicki Minaj Ex-boyfriend, Nasir Jones Who Is Better known as Nas.
According to a document obtained by Pulse, which contains the “Lawsuit” where Nigerian Veteran Rapper, M.I and his mate label, “Chocolate City” claims that the sum of $50,000 was paid to Nas and a co-defendant named “Ronnie Goodman” in 2013 in order to secure a verse from Nas on M.I’s track dubbed “Man.”
According to the details in the Lawsuit, the track, “Man” was initially stipulated to feature in M.I’s “Chairman” album and Nas’ Verse was to have 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 christened the “possible verse” was sent to M.I and his team, Chocolate City by the co-defendants, but the so-called “Possible Verse” 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 which was useless to M.I was sent back, with the defendants agreeing to make the “agreed-upon Verse” and other changes.
But up until this very present moment, the Defendant haven’t send either the edited verse or the mastered recording to Chocolate City.
According to BellaNaija, M.I and the entire 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.
