Default Nov 15 - Royalty Issues Could Spell "Problems" for Ice-T

Former 2 Live Crew member Brother Marquis has filed a lawsuit against fellow rapper Ice-T for royalties for "99 Problems."

Marquis (born Mark Ross) says he co-wrote "99 Problems" with Ice-T -- but that so far he's been paid just $10,000 for his services. According to a lawsuit he filed on his own behalf in Manhattan Federal Court, he claims Ice-T owes him much more. He also claims that Jay-Z also owes him for the version he released on The Black Album.

According to New York's Daily News, halfway through his lawsuit, Ross apologized for including obscene lyrics in the claim.

"Counsel for the plaintiff apologizes to the court for the graphic and profane nature of this song included in the body of this complaint," wrote Ross.

"99 Problems" feat. Brother Marquis, was released as a b-side by Ice-T on Rhyme Syndicate Records in 1993.

Ross split from 2 Live Crew in 1998 and went on to release a solo album, Bottom Boi Style in 2003.

Representatives of Ice-T and Jay-Z weren't immediately reachable for comment at press time.
