    Default Tru Master Suing RZA???

    Rap Star Sues Producers for Royalties
    By MATTHEW CHAYES
    Special to the Sun
    October 27, 2006

    Hip-hop artist True Master, who has produced records for some of the biggest names in rap — including Method Man, the Wu-Tang Clan, and the late Ol' Dirty Bastard — is accusing music companies Wu-Tang Productions, Diggs Family Music, Nassir Music, and others of breaking their contracts with him and "unjust enrichment" at his expense by not paying him the royalties the contracts require.

    True Master says he delivered the music as promised.

    The lawsuit filed yesterday in New York State Supreme Court isn't the first time True Master, whose legal name is Derrick Harris, has sparred with record labels and music companies. He filed a similar complaint in Manhattan federal court last year. A judge in that case dismissed several of the counts, including one of copyright infringement, against some of the plaintiffs, which includes Sony BMG Music.

    Mr. Harris's lawsuit marks the second time this week that hip-hop has made an appearance in Centre Street courts.

    Rap diva Foxy Brown and the indefatigable Busta Rhymes both faced misdemeanor assault charges in unrelated cases on Tuesday.

    Mr. Harris has performed himself, notably on Jazzmatazz, Vol. 2, and one of his only solo tracks, "Who's the Truest." Lawyers for the plaintiff and the defendants couldn't be reached last night for comment.

    this really sucks

    true master just doing what he has to do to obtain his due wages.

    pay the man.
    The wrath of God is being revealed from heaven against all the godlessness and wickedness of men who suppress the truth by their wickedness, since what may be known about God is plain to them, because God has made it plain to them. For since the creation of the world God’s invisible qualities—his eternal power and divine nature—have been clearly seen, being understood from what has been made, so that men are without excuse. (Romans 1:18-20)

    If he deserves the money then he should get it.
    If he's just trying to scam people then fuck him.

    Damn that sucks, I wonder what this will mean for the future of True master as a wu element and his relationship with the wu?

    Damn that sux! But haven't we heard of RZA doing this to Killah Priest and other wu-related artist before? I hope they can come 2 some kinda of an agreement? True Master is a vital part of the wu, that gives us the sound that we wanna hear.

    i think royalties are what Cappa was all upset about at one point too...around the time the cab-driver stuff was comin out he was complainin about royalties...

    i REALLY hope this doesnt mean hes finished as far as being connected with the Wu and makin beats for them and shit....Tru is amazing

    i hate all this shit man...like 20-30 years from now ppl are gonna be lookin back on this whole Wu-Tang stuff as like a crazy story just like any other famous bands in history....they all came up poor and hungry, totally blew up and achieved maaaad success and gained all kinds of die-hard fans all over the world....and then slowly started deteriorating, having feuds and problems within and all kinds of business problems n shit....

    the story of the Wu (and i mean like the WHOLE story, after most of them are dead and shit..or just totally out of it) will make a real good movie one day...

    That's shitty news but still not a great excuse as to why True Master disappeared completely. He should work with SOMEONE at least.
