Lawsuits seem to be the overall theme when it relates to 2009 and as people continue to suffer financially, they continue to find outlets to make sure that they have dividends to fill up their pockets. Former associate “Thug Queen” is suing Bone Thugs-N-Harmony for $22.5 million.
Legally known as Kamilha Greer, the lawsuit was filed after she claimed that she was owed royalties for efforts that she put forth in their 1998 album. Bone Thugs have not been the only to feel the wrath from the Queen as the suit is also going against Mo Thug Records and Ruthless Records. The actual issue comes from Greer stating that she penned Mo Thugs Family Scripture Chapter II: Family Reunion, which came out back in May of 1998. Greer has claimed that she has added lyrics to songs such as “Mighty Mighty Warrior,” “The Queen,” “Ghetto Cowboys” and others. “Ghetto Cowboys” would spark to be the #1 single for the album as it also hit the top of the mountain on the U.S. rap charts.
In the claim she has not received any residuals for her pen game and contribution for the album which went on to achieve platinum status. She also appeared in the visual/music video for “Ghetto Cowboys.”
In the legal battle, Greer has been seeking the amount of 2.5 million dollars on various accounts which includes such things as Breach of Contract, Conversion, Negligence, Fraud and Breach of Fiduciary Duty.
On the music side, Bone Thugs, now back together as 5, will be releasing their much anticipated album, The World’s Enemy, which is set to hit stores September 22. So far, no official single has been released for the album, but Layzie Bone opened up to let fans know that “See Me Shine” will be the first single to look out for although there is no concrete date. Some rumored production for their official comeback include Krayzie Bone, Damon Elliot, Scott Storch, Dr. Dre and others.
