Money is a popular theme in rap, but some high-profile MCs appear tight-fisted about legal bills. Carlton Fields filed suit against Ludacris on Oct. 16 to recover $61,860 it says the rapper owes in fees. On Oct. 1, Kinsella Weitzman sued The Game for almost $35,000 the rapper allegedly owes for his defense against a 2007 gun charge. And in July, a McGuireWoods partner asked a judge to allow him to withdraw from hip-hop mogul Jay-Z's legal team because he hadn't been paid in a labor and employment dispute.
