Sound engineer Chauncey Mahan has filed a lawsuit against Jay Z and his label Roc Nation over some decade and a half old masters.

Earlier this year Roc Nation claim that Chauncey Mahan was trying to extort the company for $100,000 for the masters.

Jay Z and Roc Nation then filed an extortion report to LAPD, but a sting operation was set up and cops seized all the masters from Chauncey Mahan. The extortion charges were later dropped.

Now Mahan is suing the rap titan and his label saying he created those masters for Roc-A-Fella records between 1999 – 2000.
