DAVID BANNER SUES LIL WAYNE OVER UNPAID ROYALTIES…
Lil Wayne may be locked in a legal dispute with his label Cash Money Records, but it appears he is being hit with a lawsuit from another rapper. mAdE t.V reports David Banner is suing Wayne for unpaid royalties.
According to mAdE t.V sources, Banner claims to have signed a contract with Wayne’s imprint Young Money in 2008. The Mississippi emcee says YM owes him $138,787 for producing Tha Carter III tracks “La La” and “P*ssy Monster.” He also believes he has been denied $15,392 for the 2009 track “Streets Is Watchin” off the We Are Young Money compilation.
Wayne’s $51 million fight for unpaid royalties and advances with Cash Money became public late last year. Legal documents from the suit hit the internet in January. The case includes Wayne suing CMR for other artists hitting Young Money with legal action because of Cash Money’s negligence.
Banner is set to release his next studio album The God Box later this year. The project is likely to feature the song “My Uzi” featuring fellow Mississippi rapper/producer Big K.R.I.T. Giztzzz… mAdE t.V!
