New York rapper Jay-Z has been slammed with yet another lawsuit over his New York City Sports Bar, the 40/40 Club.

The hip hop mogul is now being sued by his own lawyer, who claims Jay has failed to pay his due fees.

Michael DiMattia, who has been working for Jay since July 2008, is now looking to quit as his attorney after filing a federal lawsuit against the rap mogul over the unpaid invoice, of which the value is unknown.

DiMattia has been representing Jay in an on-going lawsuit filed by employees of his 40/40 Club, who claim they are being paid less than minimum wage and have not been rewarded for overtime.

In a letter written to Federal Court Judge Loretta Preska, DiMattia says, “We are seeking to withdraw because… our requests for payment have been ignored.”

“It’s astounding. For rap’s biggest mogul, you’d think this amount of money would be chump change,” said Rex Burch, who is working on behalf of the 40/40 Club employees.
