The ‘AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted’ rapper has been slapped with a lawsuit by his longtime producer Sir Jinx for allegedly owing him more than $100,000 in unpaid royalties.
AceShowbiz -Hip-hop veteran Ice Cube is facing legal action from his longterm producer over allegations of unpaid royalties.
Sir Jinx claims he only discovered the missing payments in 2019 after working with Cube on over 28 tracks, dating back to his debut solo album in 1990, “AmeriKKKa’s Most Wanted”.
In court papers obtained by TMZ, Jinx alleges he reached out to Cube’s representatives to resolve the money problem, but his old pal never paid up.
Now he’s taking the rapper to court, and is seeking a full accounting of Cube’s financial records to determine an appropriate fee for damages, which Jinx estimates amounts to more than $100,000 (£70,700).
Among the songs he is seeking royalties for are “True to the Game”, “The Bomb”, “No Vaseline”, “The Funeral”, “It’s a Man’s World”, and “Who Got the Camera?”.
Ice Cube has yet to respond to the lawsuit accusations.
Besides facing the lawsuit over alleged unpaid royalties, Ice Cube is heading to court for a legal battle with Robinhood.
The rapper launched a lawsuit against the financial services company for allegedly using his likeness and lyrics without permission.
His image with John C. McGinley from film “Are We Done Yet?” was reportedly used in the March 8 edition of Robinhood Snacks newsletter. Beneath the photo, it was written, “Correct yourself, before you wreck yourself,” referring to his 1992 hit “Check Yo Self”.
The company responded, “No, we didn’t use his image without permission.” They went on to note, “The image was licensed and used for non-commercial, editorial purposes in connection with a blog article.”
