Round Hill sues B.o.B in royalty rights dispute

By | Published on Monday 30 May 2022


Round Hill Music has sued the rapper B.o.B claiming that he owes them $3 million after reneging on a past royalty rights agreement.

According to a legal filing last week, the rapper seemingly entered into a deal back in 2017 which involved him assigning away some of the royalties linked to his recordings, specifically public performance or so called neighbouring rights income.

That deal wasn’t with Round Hill, but the music rights firm subsequently acquired the royalty rights, which – seemingly – it has since been struggling to enforce. “In an intentional violation of the assignment agreement, defendants have prevented plaintiffs from collecting the royalties that plaintiffs are contractually entitled to collect”, says the lawsuit.

For his part, B.o.B is blaming a former manager for the dispute. He told TMZ: “I have not seen the lawsuit but am aware my former manager had entered into agreements without my knowledge. I take my business seriously and look forward to getting to the truth of what happened”.

As do we all B.o.B, as do well all.
