According to TMZ, Milian is attempting to renegotiate the settlement with demands for more money and a larger percentage of the "Baby" publishing rights. As a result, The-Dream is threatening to cancel the agreement altogether. This may not be possible, since documents are on file in Georgia detailing the estranged couple's settlement.

The Pack | 2006

Berkeley, California rappers the Pack made their footwear choice clear in 2006 with the song "Vans." The track caught the attention of Too $hort, who signed them to his imprint. MTV refused to play the video for the song, though, claiming it was essentially a commercial for the product. Rapper Lil' B disagreed. "I didn’t know nobody [at] Vans," he said. "I was just a rapper who wore Vans." Even without MTV's support, Lil' B recognized the impact of the track. "God blessed me with such a revolutionary song… People around my age know who really started a lot of the dressing people are into now."
