HSK was first to report last year that Cash Money Records was ripping-off their artist Lil Wayne. Now, legal documents from the lawsuit filed by Lil Wayne and the Young Money imprint is being revealed.
Here’s excerpts from Wezzy’s court documents:
“Two agreed upon settlements in ’05 and ’06 were to give the Lollipop rapper advances on Young Money, Wayne solo projects, and two Cash Money duet albums. A later 2008 agreement supposedly afforded Wayne further amenities such as ownership of certain master recordings.
The suit also claims a 2009 Drake Letter Amendment split revenue from the sale of Drake’s solo recordings between Cash Money and Young Money. YM was to receive one-third of net profits from the Canadian performer.
Other details revealed via the lawsuit include Wayne was set to earn $8 million whenever he completed a solo album and another $2 million once the project was turned in to Cash Money. Wayne believes he is owed back overhead payments and revenue from Drake sales as well.
Young Money is also suing over the company having to face legal action from label artists that assert they did not obtain due payments from Cash Money.
The documents also claim Wayne turned in his much delayed Tha Carter V album to Cash Money in early December 2014, and the label is now in breach of contract for not paying Wayne the obligated $10 million advance for the project.”
