JAY-Z has been hit with a lawsuit that was nearly a decade in the making.
TMZ reports that Raynard Herbert claims he used his industry contacts to help land Dame Dash, Kareem "Biggs" Burke and JAY's Roc-A-Fella Records a distribution deal. In return, Herbert was allegedly supposed to receive 1% of the royalties from Hov's 1996 debut album "Reasonable Doubt."
According to Herbert, things were going smoothly until November 2008. That's when the checks stopped coming. He says attempts to reach Jay in 2010 were unsuccessful.
Herbert is suing for the money owed, plus interest, damages and other fees.
