Rapper Writers Sued
Literary Rejections on Display points to an Associated Press report Simon & Schuster has filed suit against rappers ‘Lil Kim and Foxy Brown because the singers did not fulfill the obligations of their book contracts. The article states that Brown received $75,000 for an autobiography that was due in February 2006 and Kim was paid $40,000 for a debut novel that was due by June 2004.
The AP report lacks comment from the rappers’ camps. But this piece on MTV’s website has reaction from the legal folks associated with the musicians.
