*One-time rap mogul Damon Dash is suing his former landlords, claiming they banned him from retrieving his personal items after he was evicted.

Jay Z’s ex-business partner was ordered to leave his New York home earlier this year after failing to pay $100,000 in back rent. Now, he claims the landlords are withholding his property, including winter clothes, according to the New York Post.

He is suing to get his items back, but the defendants’ attorney, Thomas Mullaney, insists Dash had plenty of time to take his belongings and is adamant they acted “lawfully.”

The legal action is the latest personal struggle for the former Roc-A-Fella Records executive. He’s also facing a $2.8 million tax bill for allegedly failing to pay federal taxes on earnings from 2005 and 2011.
