According to a story in the Philadelphia Inquirer, Jay-Z and Dame Dash are a couple of biters. South Philly writer, Antonne Jones said that the Roc-A-Fella flick, “State Property”, is based on his novel “The Family: A Philadelphia Mob Story.” The writer said he pitched the book’s story to Jay and Dame in 1998 and offered it to the music moguls for a cool $500,000. Hov and Dash offered $50,000, but Jones rejected it and never heard from them again.
“State Property” dropped in 2002 making $2.1 million, and even spawned a sequel in 2005. Jones filed a lawsuit on May 8 and is now seeking $15 million.
Jay-Z is also facing a lawsuit in regards to his 40/40 Club in
