Contract Is the Ginuwine Article

comment
Hip-hop entertainer Elgin Baylor Lumpkin, better known as Ginuwine, had sued Memphian Michael Bourne over an allegedly fraudulent contract.

Lumpkin signed an exclusive deal with Bourne's King Music Group in May for $1.75 million. Bourne subsequently ceased contact with Lumpkin, who sought legal dissolution of their agreement and $4 million in damages.

Thursday, Lumpkin attributed the flap to "miscommunication" and said that he would begin recording a new album for King -- Lumpkin and Bourne's company -- in the next couple of weeks. The lawsuits have been dropped.
