Dame Dash has never shied away from the spotlight. This time, however, he probably will.

According to the New York Daily News, Manhattan federal judge Ronald Ellis has ordered Dash, co-founder of Roc-A-Fella Records, to to testify under oath in a lawsuit filed by the man who claims he designed the Roc's famous logo. Ellis says, "The main actor is always the person who should be Deposed first. [Dash] appears to have had the most boots-on-the-ground involvement in this."

Earlier this year, a man named Dwayne Walker filed a lawsuit in which he alleges the Roc-A-Fella founders owe him over $7 million in royalties. According to the suit, Walker signed a contract with Dash and Jay Z for $3,500 up front, plus 2 percent of the company's revenue for ten years.

In May, after Ellis agreed that Jay Z was too busy to sit for a deposition on the same lawsuit, one of Mr. Carter's attorneys claimed that Jay doesn't remember Walker, and that a contract involving royalties like the alleged 2 percent would never have been signed.
