G.O.O.D. Music’s Tyga wants to get paid in full and is doing what’s necessary to make sure it happens. The hip-hop star has reportedly sued Baby‘s Cash Money and Lil Wayne‘s Young Money to get money he’s owed.
According to reports, Tyga is going the legal route to get at least $1 million from YMCMB.
Tyga claims Young Money — run by Lil Wayne — shorted him “significant sums.” He goes on in his lawsuit to claim in 2016 both Cash Money and Young Money agreed to pay Tyga all the royalties that he says were owed to him for years, but he didn’t get squat. Tyga says he’s tried over and over to get paid, only to get stonewalled. (TMZ)
At last weekend’s Weezyana Fest concert, Baby publicly apologized to Wayne for their past publicized royalties legal dispute.
“To be home, f*cking with my son. I love that n*gga to death. I don’t know what y’all know but I know what I know and I know I live by what I know. I knew this day was gonna come but I didn’t know when it was gonna come. But this n*gga right here, the realest n*gga, the illest n*gga and I wanted to apologize to my n*gga worldwide to let him know that, you heard me, that n*gga put his life in my hands and I’m gonna keep it real – we’re gonna do this sh*t until the day we die. YMCMB ’til death.”
Back in June, Cash Money’s Jacquees revealed Wayne is still on the label.
“I just talked to Stunna the other day, he told me Wayne Cash Money. He said everything good, he said ‘I’m gonna get you Wayne on a song.’ That’s what I heard. I talked to Mack [Maine] the other day. Yeah. I mean, Mack always hit me. We’ve always had a relationship since I came to Cash Money. He always gave me advice. He always told me throughout my career Wayne rocked with me. He’s with Cash Money.” (TRL)
Days prior, a report emerged about Wayne low-key securing a major payout from Birdman.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wayne’s attorney, Howard King, filed a notice with the court on May 23 that all sides are ready to dismiss the lawsuit. Our sources say Universal wrote a big check to settle the suit and none of the money came from Birdman. As for the amount, we’re told it is “well over $10 million.” We are told that Universal was comfortable with the massive payment because they believe they will recoup the profits from Drake and Nicki Minaj going forward — a major part of what Wayne was suing over.
