(FreshAsFrankie) It looks like the legal battle between Future and Rocko that’s been going on for well over a year may have at long last reached a resolution.
As some may recall, Rocko sued Future early last summer over a claim that he failed to hold up his end of a business deal. Future signed a deal with Rocko’s A1 Recordings in 2011, and he allegedly agreed to put out six albums with the label. According to Rocko, Epic Records signed on to distribute the albums but Future allegedly cut a side deal that allowed the rapper to see multi-million dollar advances for the project. In the suit, Rocko was originally seeking $10 million.
Future fired back with a suit of his own, claiming that the advances he received from Epic were not contractually conflicting. The suit also claimed Rocko didn’t honor the deal because he never covered any recording costs or paid Future an arranged $10,000 advances per album.
Now that the case has been dismissed, it appears Rocko came out on top after his lawyers told TMZ he’s happy with the “very successful result.”
Sources tell the site Rocko’s payout was in the seven-figure range.
Mase also made note of the fact that he doesn’t get the credit he deserves for Bad Boy’s reign after Biggie passed.
“They never give me credit for that. All my awards went to Puff. I wrote all of those songs….There were songs I had as my singles that they gave to Biggie for his album… If you knew that Mase was the one doing all of that, you would see me in a different light. Even today, people praise Bad Boy, the real golden era of Bad Boy, I was spearheading. Biggie made it, and I’m not [taking away], I’m under Biggie; I’m nowhere near Biggie. I gotta catch myself, before somebody catch that and try to run with it. I’m saying when Biggie passed away and the company is in ambiguity and everybody is lost and in shambles, it was my pen,” said Mase.
Did you know that Mase was “penning” everything at a certain point? What are your thoughts?
The bill, touted by the National Rifle Association as its “highest legislative priority,” easily passed with a vote of 231 to 198.
Chris W. Cox, executive director of the NRA Institute for Legislative Action, called the bill “a watershed moment for Second Amendment rights,” adding that it’s the “culmination of a 30-year movement recognizing the right of all law-abiding Americans to defend themselves, and their loved ones, including when they cross state lines.”
“For the millions of law-abiding citizens who lawfully carry concealed to protect themselves, for conservatives who want to strengthen our Second Amendment rights, and for the overwhelming majority of Americans who support concealed carry reciprocity, Christmas came early,” said the bill’s sponsor, Rep. Richard Hudson (R-N.C.).
Democrats, however, have accused Republicans of “trickery” and “sabotage” in getting the bill passed–it was attached to legislation to improve the national background-check system for gun purchases, something that has support on both sides of the aisle.
The bill would treat concealed-carry permits similar to driver’s licenses, allowing permit holders to legally carry concealed weapons in any state that allows them, regardless of state-specific permitting restrictions.
“Several years after being shot in the head, I’ve learned a lot — how to walk again, how to talk again, and how to start each day ready to change the world,” she said in a statement. “But today, I’m furious. I’m angry that with shootings on the rise, the response from politicians is to sell out to the gun lobby and weaken our public safety laws. . . . I’m angry that when this country is begging for courage from our leaders, they are responding with cowardice.”
