Common, BBD, Limp Bizkit, Dr. Martin Luther King & More Also Lost To the Masters Of the 2008 Universal Fire

The saga continues.

Hollywood, CA – The controversy surrounding the 2008, Universal Studios Hollywod fire continues after the New York Times, the Magazine reports of those artists most affected by the catastrophic event. On Tuesday (25 June), another NYT article claimed more than 800 new artists had their master recordings destroyed in the fire.

Among the artists included are Common, Bell Biv DeVoe, Limp Bizkit, Dr. Martin Luther King, Heavy D and more. Tupac, Eminem and 50 Cent were among those mentioned in the original story. When the original NYT Magazine article was initially published at the beginning of this month, Universal minimized the impact of the tragedy..centered-ad {
