Jay Z -- I'm Now the Master of My Own Destiny

Jay Z is once again the proud owner of some historic music. Jay has been in an epic battle with a guy who was holding the masters to The Life and Times of S. Carter and The Dynasty albums hostage. Chauncey Mahan , a sound engineer on the albums, claimed ownership and stashed boxes of tracks in a San Fernando Valley storage facility.
Cops eventually seized the masters, but Mahan didn't back down. He sued Jay and Roc Nation in July, trying to get a piece of the action.
A judge just shut him down, ruling he waited way too long to sue.
So Jay Z owns his stuff outright.
