Legal Dispute Breaks Out Over DMX's Latest Album 'Undisputed'

Added: 22 September 2012 | Read 609 times

A legal dispute is broken out over the rights to distribute the latest album by Hip-Hop superstar DMX. Seven Arts Entertainment recently filed a lawsuit against music industry executives Craig Sussman and Charles Gullo, of In The Zone Entertainment.

The lawsuit claims Sussman and Gullo are interfering with Seven Arts’ rights to the Undisputed album by DMX, since the pair are also claiming distribution rights to the release

According to lawsuit, Seven Arts purchased the rights to an album titled Redemption of the Beast in February from the original rights holder, who is not named in the complaint.

Sussman and Gullo had been hired by the first owner of the album to distribute DMX’s release via their label In The Zone Entertainment Group (ITZ), but ITZ never follow through with paying almost $500,000 in fees associated with obtaining the rights to the album.

Seven Arts was the party that eventually paid for the rights to distribute DMX’s album, but Sussman and Gullo allegedly keep attempting to interfere with the distribution of the release.

Seven Arts is seeking an injunction against Sussman And Gullo, in addition to $6 million in damages.

Lil Wayne Gets New Face Tattoo That Resembles 'All Seeing Eye'

Lil Wayne may be in the middle of a public feud with his label Cash Money Records, but Weezy still took the time to get some new body ink. LWHQ reports Tunechi met with a California based tattoo artist named Spider, and the Young Money boss added an eye and “Mumma’s Boy” in Arabic to his face.

The new eye tat on Wayne’s chin resembles the “Eye Of Providence” or “All Seeing Eye” that is found on the U.S. dollar bill. Conspiracy theorists contend the image represents the Illuminati’s New World Order, but the Eye of Providence has also been connected to the ancient Egyptian (or Kemetian) symbol known as the “Eye Of Horus” which embodies wisdom, protection, and good health.
