Jay-Z & Partners Sued For Unpaid Royalties From Creating Roc-A-Fella Logo

Dwayne Walker has filed suit against Jay-Z, alleging that he is owed unpaid royalties from creating the Roc-A-Fella logo.

A New York City, New York clothing designer has sued Jay-Z and his former Roc-A-Fella record label partners, claiming they owe him $7 million in unpaid royalties for designing their label logo.

According to NYDN, Dwayne Walker filed a suit in Manhattan yesterday that he created the Roc-A-Fella design and wasn’t properly compensated for his work.

“The logo has become universally recognized as an iconic symbol of Jay-Z, one of the most successful recording artists in the history of popular music,” the suit claims.

Walker designed the logo in 1995 when Roc-A-Fella started. The suit says he saw the initial logo that Damon Dash had in mind, and said he could do better.
