Ghostface Wins Court Battle Against Wu Tang, Wizard of Poetry Debuts Online
Ghostface made it no secret that he was unhappy with his former production company and made headlines with the announcement of his ongoing court battle to receive unpaid royalties. Face took Wu Tang Productions and Robert Diggs, better known as RZA, to court about unsettled payment. Now after four years, court documents have appeared that cite that the case was settled and Face walked away more than $150,000 richer.
The case originally took shape in 2005 when he claimed that RZA owed him from early music the pioneer made with his Wu Tang family.Unhappy with the situation, Ghost spoke out to MTV saying:
Don't play with a grown man's pockets. Don't ever let a ni**a feel like you stealing from him…because we was the ni**as that would've did anything for you, jump in front of a bullet for you."
His old Wu Tang fam, U-God, also served RZA with court papers alleging that he owed him $170,000 in royalties. That case is ongoing.
Ghostface's new album, Ghostdini: The Wizard of Poetry in Emerald City, was released exclusively to Imeem for free streaming before it's September 29 release. You can listen to the full album here.
