      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 New York. According to TMZ.com, waitress Celeste Williams is claiming that she was paid below minimum wage and that her tips and overtime pay were withheld. Apparently 100 other employees of the club will join the suit. A spokesperson for the club says that Williams only worked there for four days and was paid appropriately.
