Meek Mill & Roc Nation Sued For Allegedly Stiffing Doc Filmmakers

Hip Hop

Meek Mill and Roc Nation are being sued for allegedly stiffing a documentary company called Good Company Pictures. According to court documents obtained by AllHipHop, both parties are accused of failing to honor a “clearly stated payment obligations” in connection with production services provided by the company.

“Good Company agreed to provide Defendant with production services in connection with Meek Mill’s concert at Madison Square Garden at the ‘Meek Mill + Friends’ concert on Saturday, October 23, 2021 (the ‘MSG Performance’ or the ‘MSG Concert’), and post-performance work related to the MSG Performance, including the development of a Meek Mill documentary regarding the MSG Performance,” the docs read. “Although Good Company provided the requested services, and despite Meek Mill and Roc Nation’s promises to pay Good Company, Good Company has not received any payment to date.”

Good Company says they expected a fee of $200,000 for production work pre and post-concert.

“On October 26, 2021, Roc Nation, acting on its own behalf and on behalf of its then-client Meek Mill, advised Good Company that there was a $200,000 budget for the Production (excluding post-MSG Performance expenses such as interviews, clearances, licensing, or post production),” the docs explain. “Roc Nation advised Good Company to invoice $100,000 to Roc Nation and represented that it had secured a commitment for the remaining $100,000 to be paid by Meek Mill.”

But a few days later, Roc Nation informed Good Company Meek Mill wanted to own the footage and approvals for the production. After the Madison Square Garden show, Good Company says they repeatedly contacted Meek for
payment, which Meek acknowledged he owed. He “promised payment was forthcoming.”

The docs continue, “On January 29, 2022, Good Company informed Roc Nation that it would like to be paid in full for the $166,137.86 it spent to date in connection with the Production before proceeding with its
remaining work. On March 14, 2022, having not heard from Roc Nation, Good Company sent another request for payment. On May 26, 2022, still awaiting payment and a response, Good Company sent an invoice for $166,137.86 to Roc Nation. The invoice reflected work performed by Good Company covering the ‘First Phase of MSG production expenses only [and which] [d]oes not include any licensing, clearances, or post production of any kind.’”
