Rza, Wu-Tang Hit w/ Lawsuit Over Unpaid Royalties
Wu-Tang Clan is being sued by a former producer named Selwyn Bougard. In his newly filed lawsuit, Bougard alleges that the group, including brothers Mitchell and Robert (aka RZA) failed to pay his royalties. He says that he is owed more than $500,000. Bougard knew there was a problem nearly 20 years ago,
But he was young and looked up to them and he had no representation and was unable to collect.
The producer’s lawyer adds,
He finally has representation and we hope to get him properly compensated for his music.
Wu-Tang Clan was a hip hop group from Staten Island, New York City, originally composed of East Coast rappers RZA, GZA, Ol’ Dirty Bastard, Method Man, Raekwon, Ghostface Killah, Inspectah Deck, U-God and Masta Killa. Longtime collaborator Cappadonna became a member in 2007. The Wu-Tang Clan has released four gold and platinum studio albums. Its 1993 debut album, “Enter the Wu-Tang (36 Chambers)”, is considered one of the greatest albums in hip-hop history.
