(Gossip-Grind News) David Banner Files Lawsuit Against Lil Wayne For Unpaid Royalties:
Rapper/producer David Banner has hit fellow rap star Lil Wayne with a lawsuit for unpaid royalties for songs that he produced on Wayne’s highly successful album Tha Carter III. The irony in the situation is that Wayne is currently embroiled in a legal battle with his mentor Birdman and Cash Money Records for the same reason.
Rapper David Banner claims he signed a contract in 2008 with Wayne’s Young Money Records to produce two songs for Wayne — “La La” and “Pussy Monster” — featured on “Tha Carter III.”
Banner claims Young Money told him in 2012 he was owed $138,787.19 in royalties … but he never saw a cent. Banner also claims Young Money has gone radio silent, so he has no idea how much more he’s owed.
Banner also says the same thing happened in 2009 with “Streets Is Watchin.” He claims he was told he’s owed more than $15,392.57. (TMZ)
