West Coast rapper YG has some legal headaches at the start of 2017. New reports claim the hip-hop star is dealing with an unpaid royalties lawsuit for songs “Who Do You Love” and “Bicken Back Being Bool.”
According to reports, YG affiliate poet Henry Richard Russell a.k.a. Grimmis wants him to pony up some seriously owed bucks.
Russell says he was never paid one dime for his efforts, and YG would never even discuss any form of compensation. Both songs are from YG’s debut album My Krazy Life and “Who Do You Love?” featuring Russell’s poem “B*tch, Who Do You Love?” was released as a single and eventually went platinum. For his troubles Russell is suing YG, DJ Mustard — the lone producer of each track — Def Jam and YG’s publishing company 400 Wayz for copyright infringement and fraud and is seeking an undetermined amount of damages.
