Bone, who one month ago dismissed a lawsuit he
filed against Sony Music, Loud Records and others for releasing
a video compilation without his permission is back in court.
The latest legal
filing is against Southwest Wholesale Tapes And Records. Southwest
handles distribution for many Indie rap labels from the South
and West Coast including: Flip Tha Switch Records, Twista
and Legit Ballin Records, Ball Hawg Records and Big Shot Records.
Bone and Knockout Entertainment approached Southwest about
handling the distribution for his second solo album, Gift,
which is due out March 20th. When Southwest stated that they
weren’t financially able to distribute the record the way
Bizzy and Knockout desired, Knockout took their business elsewhere,
to Innovative Distribution. Southwest has continued work on
the project without permission.
