Ghostface Killah has filed suit against Universal Music Group to recoup royalties withheld in a supposed contract violation.
According to The Hollywood Reporter, the Wu-Tang Clan swordsman claims that UMG holds a 25 percent stake in the group’s songs and not a 50 percent copyright interest, as the label purports. He is seeking to recover royalties withheld by the music conglomerate.
As a defendant, GK is also fending off Hollywood composer Jack Urbont, who composed the “Iron Man Theme.” Urbont claims that he illegally used the track for his 2000 release Supreme Clientele. While in court on Friday, Ghost’s lawyers explained that the judge should dismiss the suit because “Urbont’s allegations are barred by statues of limitations.”
