The suit from record label TufAmerica alleges the track samples Bo's tune dozens of times. This is third time that TufAmerica has filed a complaint against Roc-A-Fella Records in Manhattan federal court this year.
The label says it is entitled to proceeds from “Run This Town” and damages to be determined at trial. The suit also seeks a court order to halt “further distribution and exploitation” of Bo’s song.
Jay Z, Roc-A-Fella Records, Atlantic Recording and several other companies are all named as defendants.
Both prior suits filed by TufAmerica against Roc-A-Fella were settled before trial.
