Posted on August 14, 2005 by Jamie Slaughter
R&B singer Lil' Mo is planning to sue Ja Rule, Murder Inc. Records and Def Jam for a total of $15 million dollars in unearned capital from "Put It On Me", the 2001 hit record.
The song was a major hit in the summer of 2001 and helped raise recognition and awareness for Ja and the company
Lil Mo claims that she owned 10 percent of the song's publishing and has contacted a lawyer in an effort to claim back what she insists is hers.
Lil Mo has also stated that she has sent letters to the company, phoned them on numerous occasions and as yet no reciprical correspondance has been made. She also mentioned that while Ja and company where getting paid in excess of $50,000 a show, she was performing for free.
Representatives for Murder Inc. and Def Jam have yet to make a comment on this situation.
