After reports of Mack 10 being in the red over unpaid studio sessions hit the Internet earlier today, a representative for the West Coast rapper has come forward.
In addition to the rep, plaintiff Rodger Carter also spoke on the case.
A rep for Mack told XXLMag.com that this suit is from a while back and has since been resolved. “Everything has been good with me and Mack 10,” Rodger Carter said. “Matter of fact, he has been at work in my studio for over a month now. There are no issues between us.” (XXL Mag)
Details of the $2,000-plus lawsuit emerged online Monday morning.
Rapper Mack 10’s return to a recording studio is getting a lot of attention — from the guy who is suing him for unpaid studio time! Rodger Carter — who operates The Doghouse Studio — claims Mack 10 stiffed him for almost 30 hours of studio time, at $75/hour, for a total of $2,165. Mack 10 hasn’t had a top 10 rap hit since the 1990s — so if Carter wins … he better hope Mack 10’s latest session yielded a track worth 2K. (TMZ)
Additional reports suggested the suit was filed over a month ago.

Over the weekend, Mack paid homage to late rapper Nate Dogg by attending his funeral in Los Angeles.
On a dark and damp Saturday morning (March 26), thousands of family, friends and fans turned out for one last show from their hero, rap legend Nate Dogg, who was laid to rest in his hometown of Long Beach. Inside the Long Beach Cruise Terminal, lights shined down on the wooden coffin adorned with red and white flowers. Two jumbo screens on opposite sides of his casket flashed six different photos of the singer from a childhood boy, when he was known to family as “Buddy,” to the platinum singer known to the world as Nate Dogg. West Coast rap artists including Dr. Dre, Game, DJ Quik, Mack-10 and WC, DJ Pooh, Battlecat and others were on hand to pay their respects to the singer with platinum vocal chords. (MTV)
