The emcee/activist insists crooked transactions were made to hide money from him.

(AllHipHop News) It appears Carlton "Chuck D" Ridenhour is suing Reach Global Music and Terrordome Music Publishing. The record company allegedly engaged in hidden transactions, false and fraudulent copyright registrations, and accounting tricks to hide money.

According to the suit, Chuck D says he discovered the irregularities in February. The Public Enemy member claimed he lost a 42% stake in his music catalog. He is seeking $1 million in damages and wants full ownership of his songs.

The Reach Music website still lists Chuck D on its lists of clients. Other Hip Hop artists Common, Nate Dogg, Pete Rock, Maino, Fat Joe, and Remy Ma are also signed with the California-based company.
