Late hip-hop icon 2Pac’s estate has reportedly been sued over 90’s hit “Bury Me a G.” New reports claim a singer wants compensation for the infectious tune.
Fresh reports claim Natasha Walker made a deal with Pac in ’93 to have equal ownership on the record.
Natasha says she’s never seen a dime from the song’s release … hence her lawsuit. One potential problem for her: It’s 2017 and the statute of limitations for contract claims in California is just 4 years. Walker’s attorney, Jennifer Harris, tells us because the song continues to make money and will for the foreseeable future … her client has every right to come-a-knockin’ now. She wants all royalties, back and current, plus damages and attorney’s fees. (TMZ)
Recently, Hollywood director John Singleton aired out his frustrations with the new 2Pac biopic All Eyez On Me.
“They just made a movie, they didn’t think of it as a cultural event. They didn’t think of it in terms of something that affected our generation. People who are younger, who don’t really understand the legacy of Tupac Amaru Shakur, they just go to a movie and they see a rap star. But dude was much more than a rap star. So that’s why I’m really upset. And then these cats get on the radio and start disparaging my name – 50 [Cent] came out and had my back. ‘I saw this, y’all need to apologize to John.'” (V-103)
This week, G-Unit boss 50 Cent ripped All Eyez On Me with some savage trolling.
Last week, New York rapper Troy Ave had heavily co-signed the new Tupac biopic.
