Slim Thug, Beat King & More Named in Fraud Suit Against Producer Mr. Lee



Houston’s self-proclaimed super-producer, Leroy Williams DBA Mr. Lee has once again been accused of fraud in a new lawsuit filed this past Friday. Plaintiff Ryan Elder, President and CEO of Elder Entertainment alleges that Mr. Lee as well as agents of his, to whit, Theron Parker, Chad ‘BC’ Newton and David Smith AKA David Stunts took funds from him for contractually agreed upon services, some of which were never delivered. Other grievances include the double selling of beats and tracks with features from a host of well-known music artists that had been purchased by the plaintiff and the selling of beats he claimed to have produced that were in fact produced by other parties. The list of feature artists to whose verses Mr. Lee laid claim include Rick Ross, Ludacris, Too Short, Lil Wayne, David Banner, E-40, Bun B, Scarface, 2Chainz, Yo Gotti, Devin The Dude, Lil Keke, Z-Ro, Slim Thug, OG Ron C and more. Artists Mr. Elder alleges used beats purchased from Mr. Lee that were already contractually owned by him include Slim Thug and Beatking. Said tracks were then distributed on the accuseds’ music projects allegedly despite it being known that the music was not theirs to distribute.

In addition to the double-selling of tracks and features, Mr. Lee and agents allegedly fraudulently took money for both music videos to be produced and shot by David Stunts that were never delivered as well as illicitly representing themselves as agents of Hoopla Media Group, a distribution company, for a distribution deal that never materialized. Both Lee and Theron Parker are named under this allegation.

Mr. Lee is no stranger to fraud allegations. In 2009 plaintiff  Yippikya Corp., a Delaware company licensed to do business in the state of Texas was awarded a two million dollar judgement against him for similar claims. A hearing date for the current case against Lee has not yet been set and he has denied all allegations.
