Actor Sues Roc-A-Fella, Def Jam For $1 Million
Source:

 


Roc-A-Fella Records and Def Jam have been hit with a lawsuit by a man who claims he was stiffed out of payment for acting in Jay-Z's 1998 movie “Streets Is Watching.”

Malcolm Crenshaw filed a $1 million dollar lawsuit in Manhattan Federal Court against Roc-A-Fella Records, Island Def Jam Music Croup and Universal Music & Video Distribution.

Crenshaw claims he was never paid for appearing in four scenes in "Streets Is Watching," a semi-autobiographical short film about Jay-Z’s life in Brooklyn, as narrated by the rapper himself.

The straight-to-video release chronicles Jay-Z's rise from street hustler to rap superstar.

Jay-Z co-wrote the movie with Damon Dash and Abdul Malik Abbott, who also co-wrote “State Property.”

Jay-Z and Damon Dash also served as executive producers of the film, which also featured Dash, Pain in da Ass and Rell.

The film also produced the Streets Is Watching soundtrack, which featured the hit single “It’s Alright” featuring Memphis Bleek.
