rap-a-lot2.jpgAs reported last week on XXLMag.com, Ronald Bookman, owner of 7303 Records and Studio 7303 in Houston, filed a lawsuit against Rap-A-Lot Records’ owner James Prince. According to the lawsuit, the situation dates back to 2005 when Prince allegedly allowed his artist, UGK’s Bun B, to appear on a song with 7303 Records’ first artist, JV. The song, “Wrong for Dat,” was recorded in 2005 and Bookman claims Rap-A-Lot and Prince agreed to assign all rights to 7303 Records in exchange for discounted or free studio time at 7303 studio. But according to the suit, Prince didn’t fulfill his promise to allow Bun B on the song after he found out Warner Bros. Records approached Bookman about a label deal. The disagreement then turned physical when Prince and a half-dozen of his associates allegedly beat up Bookman at a Houston recreation center owned by Prince. Now, a Houston area state district judge, Patricia Hancock, has granted a temporary restraining order against J. Prince stating he cannot go within 500 feet of Bookman’s home or place of business. The order was requested by Bookman and states that “imminent and irreparable injury will result in the absence of injunctive relief.”
