T-Pain is the latest artist/producer to file a lawsuit against Young Money/Cash Money Records. According to the singer he is owed royalties for his contributions to Tha Carter III album.
T-Pain’s company, Nappy Boy Productions, is suing Young Money … saying he produced Wayne’s track, “Got Money,” which also featured T-Pain. Further, TP says one of his artists,Young Fyre, produced “How to Hate” on “Tha Carter IV.”
The deal, according to docs, was that Young Money would pay T-Pain some royalties. According to the docs, there should be a bundle … because 2008’s “Tha Carter III” sold more than 3.2 million copies … and that’s in the U.S. alone.
T-Pain believes he and Young Fyre are owed more than $500k.(TMZ)
Juvenile, David Banner, Jas Prince, and Lil Wayne himself have filed lawsuits against Birdman and Cash Money Records in the past.
