(AllHipHop News) Rap group Bone Thugs-N-Harmony are in the news again, as a former associate has filed a $27 million dollar lawsuit against the members.

Roland Brown filed the lawsuit yesterday (April 28th) accusing the group of breach of contract, over unpaid royalties related to a Mo Thugs Records album.

The lawsuit was filed in the Cuyahoga County Court of Common Please in Cuyahoga County, Ohio against Sony, Ruthless Records, Relativity, Loud Records, WMG, Mo Thugs Inc.. and each member of Bone Thugs-N-Harmony.

According to the lawsuit, Roland Brown wrote two songs on the multi-platinum album Mo Thugs Family Scriptures.

According to Roland Brown, he wrote the songs "Take Your Time" and "Here With Me" by the female group Tre.

The album, which was released in November of 1996, is currently being sold on various outlets, including the Internet.

The lawsuit claims Mo Thugs Inc. never paid a dime in royalties, despite the fact that the album sold over 1 million copies and spawned Mo Thug: Family Reunion, which also moved over 1 million units.

Roland Brown seeks $24 million dollars in damages and $3 million in mechanical royalties for the single, music video and album Mo Thugs Family Scriptures.
