Mobb Deep Files Lawsuit Against Former Manager

Mobb Deep have filed a lawsuit in court against their former manager claiming he used their recording without permission, according to TMZ.

The suit (filed Tuesday in New York) alleges Norman Bell authorized songs by the New York duo to be used as a part of “Best of”-style compilation mixtapes. Prodigy nor Havoc gave permission the lawsuit contends. Bell, according to the suit, goes by the name Purfek Storm and he released several mixtapes under that name, packed full of Mobb Deep songs.

Mobb is claiming Bell owes the pair over $1 million in royalties for the rights to the various songs he used without permission. The group’s legal representatives are requesting a trial by jury.—Anthony Thomas
