Jay Z has 99 problems but avoiding a deposition ain't one

Jay Z now has more than 99 problems — the rap mogul has been ordered to give a deposition in a 2012 federal lawsuit he was slapped with by the man who designed the his iconic Roc-A-Fella records logo.

Magistrate Judge Ronald Ellis recently approved clothing designer Dwayne Walker’s motion in Manhattan federal court to move forward with depositions and discovery in his copyright-infringement and breach-of-contract lawsuit against Jay-Z, Roc-A-Fella co-founder Damon Dash and Universal Music Group.

Walker alleges in the suit he’s owed more than $7 million for creating the label’s logo when Roc-A-Fella — now a subsidiary of Universal Music Group — was created in 1995.

Walker’s attorney Gregory Berry issued a statement hailing the judge’s March 18 order.

“For over 18 months, Jay Z and the other defendants have done everything they can to avoid swearing under oath to the events that led to the creation of the logo, ” he said. “With the decision, the defendants’ delay tactics must stop, and Mr. Walker’s quest for justice can move forward.
