A music company claims that legendary rap boss Nipsey Hussle died owing them tens of thousands of dollars, and now they are now filing papers against Nipsey’s estate to collect on the old debt.
Paramount Recording Group informed the courts that Nipsey owes them $32K from a seven-year-old judgement, The Blast reports.
This represents the first lawsuit filed against the late rapper’s estate since he was tragically murdered on March 31, 2019, in front of The Marathon Clothing store he owned in South Los Angeles.
This is not a new claim, the publication informs readers. PRG wants to be paid on a lawsuit that they already won back in 2012 against Nipsey and another unidentified party.
Nipsey Hussle’s brother, Samiel “Blacc Sam” Asghedom, has also filed papers with the court. Blacc Sam seeks to be the administrator of Nipsey’s estate since the rapper, entrepreneur, and philanthropist died without a will.
Blacc Sam, according to The Blast, told the court that his brother’s murder “has created significant media attention, which, in turn, has presented potential time-sensitive business opportunities based on [Nipsey Hussle]’s likeness, right of publicity, and other intellectual property based on the media attention surrounding [Nipsey Hussle]’s exceptional life story and musical career.”
If Blacc Sam becomes the administrator, he will be able to handle the business opportunities and revenue streams that were generated during Nipsey’s life and since his death.
The Nipsey Hussle estate is estimated to be worth just over $2M.
