Cut The Check: Tyga Sues Cash Money And Young Money Over Unpaid Royalties
Everything may be alright between Lil Wayne and Birdman, but Tyga still has a bone to pick with both of his former bosses. Tyga is reportedly suing Cash Money and Young Money over unpaid royalties from his 2012 and 2013 albums, TMZ reports.
The lawsuit stems from a previous deal Tyga made with the boys back in 2009. He reportedly agreed to produce two albums under Tunechi’s label Young Money. He released both Careless World: Rise of the Last King and Hotel California in 2012 and 2013 respectively, both of which did well on the charts. Careless World, which debuted at No. 4 on the Billboard 200, contained the hit singles “Rack City” and “Faded.” Hotel California also charted at No. 7 on the same album charts.
Tyga claims he was slighted a significant amount of coins and is looking for the label to pay up. Furthermore, he claims that both Young Money and Cash Money agreed to pay him all the royalties that were owed to him in 2016, but he has yet to see a dime. The ‘Taste” artist said that he’s attempted to get his money, but has been ignored several times, which is why he’s resorted to legal action.
It’s no secret YMCMB has shorted some of its artists. In fact, Tyga previously revealed he had not been paid for “Rack City” during a 2017 interview on The Breakfast Club.
While the amount Tyga is owed in royalties has not been confirmed, the rapper is reportedly asking for no less than $1 million.
