Supreme Court Declines to Hear Appeal in TVT/Def Jam Case

jarule.jpgToday (June 26) the Supreme Court decided not to hear an appeal in a case involving a dispute between Island Def Jam and TVT records over an album recorded by Ja Rule when he was a member of Queens, New York group Cash Money Click. The case, which TVT won back in 2003, alleged that IDJ actively attempted to prevent the release of the album although it was recorded when Rule was under contract with the label. At that time, TVT was awarded $132 million in punitive and compensatory damages after a court sided with them over Def Jam and Lyor Cohen, who was IDJ chairman at the time. Last year, New York’s Second Circuit Court of Appeals overturned the decision and substantially reduced the monetary compensation initially awarded to TVT. In this latest appeal, TVT’s attorneys had sought to have the Supreme Court review the case and have the 2nd Circuit Court’s decision overturned.

    Game sold 2 million in the US and 50′s did 5 million in the US, that’s why he had the best selling album of 2005 get your facts straight. As for Game, his shit supposed to come out summer 2006, and we about to hit the third qt. If that shit don’t drop by august then it won’t come out till next year. XXL I don’t know why they put this up here, it’s hip-hop news, but Ja Rule is dead, no way he comming out of that grave. They should interview his ass, ask him how he’s going to make a comeback, b/c I think we all need a good laugh with all this beef shit we going through.

    i mean come on now what the fuck was 50 thinking taking on Game,D block,Nas and joe. LMAO

  • Styles

    1.Get Rich never sold 11 million in the US it sold 7 million. It sold 11 million world wide
    2. The massacre sold 11 million world wide.
    3.Banks sold 2.3 million in the US and 4 million world wide.
    4.Buck sold 1 million US and 2 million world Wide.
    Sorry You’re wrong again. I like Game, but as for him pushing it back b/c of Cube and Busta, They dropped two weeks after each other and in the months leading up to 6/06/06 Interscope didn’t even have it on the websites’s comming soon list. Until he gets his contract re done and he’s off G-unit he won’t drop. Game couldn’t push the album back to begin with because it didn’t have an official release date. I been checking Interscope for it, no mention of the record, but when Banks’s record was announced in may they had him listed for July 18, but it got pushed back. How ‘am I a dumb fuck when I’m telling the truth?
    Check http://www.interscope.com if you think anything I’m saying is incorrect about Game being on G-unit. Banks record won’t come out till they get done recording b/c he’s got a statement saying that he’s doing last minute recording. G-unit falling off, I’ve been saying that, but I also said that I don’t think that Game record is going to be a quality record if it drops this year b/c he’s still G-unit and doesn’t want to in any way associated with 50. You can’t argue with facts, you can dislike them, but facts are facts.

    Look fuck all this who cares on who sold or left who or who pushed their album back….Its like this Game first album was hot 50′s Massacre was alright Buck album was hot Banks album tight but its like this, whatever artist makes the most club bangers and radio singles then thats who album is going to sell the most on their release date. It don’t matter on what they are talking about anymore or how tight their lyrics are it is the radio, the video, and club bangers sell your albums nowadays. As for that nigga Ja Rule if a nigga owe him money then dammit get your money man but if he and you know he don’t then you are hoe for trying to get paid you need to work in the lab and drop some hard shit at the close of the summer thats how you hustle and flow

  • http://hoya 104th INGLEWOOD TCG

    Game aint inked to G unit! thats a FACT!!!
    game said it himself, get 50 to show the peice of paper that says He is signed to G unit! It was a 1 album deal. Dr’s Advocate gonna drop this year! Dre even gave the word for it

  • http://hoya 104th INGLEWOOD TCG

    lol and i aint even on the whole Sales shit on tha real…. im on the streets shit.
    tha boy Spider Joke is a mark like his brotha! 50 think coz he signed a Crip that he coo when he roll in LA! awww hell naw. that boy spider aint neva seen on 97th. lol u wanna talk bout albums not coming out? Spider Loc be on the top of that list lmao

  • champ

    Okay think about it…you hustling trying to make trying make your cheese you are going to be and go somewhere where you know people might like and try to rob you or kill you thats stupid and plan out not gangsta….but if you have a death wish inglewood then do what you do….cause being smart doesn’t mean you are scared….being stupid means just because you think you ahve something to prove and guess what you will find yourself in a pool of blood

  • Styles

    Hell I’ll be the first to say Spider Loc won’t drop b/c he’s not a hot MC. Anyone that knows rap will tell you he’s gotten better, but he’s not good enough to drop an album. He’s worse than yayo and that’s pretty bad. I just want to see if the game record is going to be any good. As for Ja, he trying to make a comeback, but nobody wants to hear that type of music from him anymore. His RULE album had two good songs on it. Ja dead the real reason why they cut the amount of money is b/c Ja last three albums were bricks. Blood In My Eye, Rule, and Greatest Hits. Def Jam lost money backing him. Shame though he was a decent songwriter, he’ll still keep getting money though from his old stuff.

  • Toothpick

    Fuck Ja, whys he worrying about his album, whos gonna buy it?
