Well, this is awkward: Lil Wayne is reportedly being sued for unpaid royalties.
According to TMZ, David Banner is hitting up Weezy for money owed from two songs produced on his Tha Carter III album, “La La” and “P***y Monster.” After a contract signed in 2008, Banner claims he was never paid. He also alleges that he was informed by Wayne’s Young Money label that he was due a grand total of $138,787.19, the site reports. Banner is also suing for royalties on a track from the We Are Young Money album, “Streets Is Watchin,” for which he alleges he is owed $15,392.57.
It is not far stretch to consider that Wayne’s reportedly unpaid royalties may stem from his issues with Cash Money Records Birdman, who owns 51 percent of his Young Money label. As Banner gears up to get his money, Birdman’s first tell-all interview since things went sour between he and Wayne is scheduled to air on Tuesday (July 28).
