Jay-Z sued over logo design

Jay-Z is being sued for royalties for the logo design for his label Roc-A-Fella

Jay-Z is being sued by a man who claims he is owed millions of dollars in unpaid royalties for designing the logo for his record label.

New York City clothing designer Dwayne Walker claims the hip hop star and his former Roc-A-Fella partners owe him 7 million dollars (£4.5 million) for creating the Roc-A-Fella design.

Walker said in a lawsuit filed in Manhattan federal court that he created the logo.

The lawsuit says the Bronx designer came up with the logo in 1995 when Roc-A-Fella was just starting out. The label is now a subsidiary of Universal Music Group.

The logo features the letter R, a record and a Champagne bottle.

The New York Daily News reports Jay-Z's publicist did not respond to messages seeking comment.
