A New York City designer has sued Jay-Z and his former label partners at Roc-A-Fella for $7 million in unpaid royalties, reports the Associated Press. Dwayne Walker claims the rapper and the label owe him the sum for creating the label's logo. The lawsuit states Walker made the logo in 1995 in the label's early days.

Jay-Z is set to open Brooklyn's new Barclays Center, home of the Brooklyn Nets, with three shows on September 28th-30th.
