Former Fugees member, Pras is having some legal drama of his own, since director of Pras’ movie is holding the footage hostage.

Now, Pras is suing the director of his documentary about Somali Pirates.

The former Fugees rapper has filed a lawsuit against Marshall Tyler, the director of Pras’ movie allegedly about the rapper being held hostage by Somali Pirates.

Here’s the drop:

TMZ reports that Pras hired Tyler in 2009 to direct “Paper Dreams,” which is about the rapper’s near-death experience with the East African pirates.

In the suit, Pras says he invested $70,000 of his own money to cover filming and travel expenses, but that Tyler won’t hand the footage over.

Pras is suing to either get the footage, or his money back plus damages.

A rep for the director says, “Pras is trying to assert ownership on material that Marshall owns the copyright to.”
