Turk Cash Money

Turk is suing his former label, Cash Money Records, for $1.3 million. Know why? Because the original Hot Boy member is claiming he hasn’t received any royalties from the company since signing with the label in 1998.

Here’s excerpts from Turk’s court documents:

“Defendants have also failed to pay Plaintiff any advances, any royalties, any artist royalties or any music publishing. Whatsoever in connection with the Exclusive Artist Recording Agreement.

Money Mack Music is also named as a defendant in the lawsuit. Turk entered into a contractual agreement with Money Mack in 1999. The lawsuit states the company was to assume payments of publishing advances and music publishing royalties for the artist’s recordings.

The suit also asserts Cash Money and Money Mack failed to register artist shares of his 2001 albumYoung & Thuggin’ and numerous individual songs he appeared on, such as ‘Ha (Remix)’ and ‘Welcome To The Nolia,’ with Broadcast Music Inc.

According to Turk, the result of not having those recordings BMI registered on his behalf was the loss of publisher’s share and writer’s share of performance royalties.

Turk is requesting the defendants provide accurate accounting in order to properly determine payments owed to him. He is seeking damages of at least $1.3 million.”

  1. Some things you have to do yourself and if his publishing and royalties were that important why has it taken damn near 20 years to realize you been getting hoe paid.

    • They were going fatherless kids who looked at Baby like their Dad because they got gamed up. Know what you’re talking about before you judge.

  2. TURK WAS A DRUG ADDICT AND MAYBE HE WOULD HAVE DONE SOMETHING IF HE HAD’NT SPENT 10 YEARS IN PRISON.

    MAn who wants to be a cash money millionaire now.

    don’t think turk owns any publishing.

    probably didn’t even know what he signed back in the day.

    wayne has a good chance of winning something.

    but turk, juve, and mannie fresh are ass out.

    juve had to come back.

    turk better look into how j prince’s phukking him over at rap a lot.

    juve was on rap a lot but he left these rappers just go from one label to another getting phukked at every opportunity.

    like field mob said these labels be3 raping you, raping you.

  3. Wowwww bird you been steal’en left and right mayne, you dirty low down, don’t want to give the people that make’en you rich nothen? Just like that hu? I blame the artist because you guys should have hired an attorney to explain what you don’t understand in those contacts and make sure you get what you supposed to get, no y’all ready jump right on in sign to something you didn’t understand and barely read if you could read, bird I gotta hand OT to you mane, ima tell you how I see it bird you had the baddest tricks walk’en round naked and all the drugs they could use and pop’en bottles 247 and car’s of all kinds diamonds big houses party party party, and those boy’s seen all that and you told’em all this can be yours just sign on the dotted line, after you showed them the time of their lives, tricks everywhere money all on the floor gambling just party party, this went on for a while,and one of the cash money artist woke up and they started drop’en off the label one by one, you had hopes that they would be strung out,and 1 or 2 did, and you also had hopes a few would OD, and with any luck they wouldn’t regain consciousness,that was you keep everything publishing,royalties and all scott free, but it didn’t quite pan out that way,so you had ta get new hungry thirsty wanna be rappers then enter young Frankenstein and lil hommie quan and the new Miss guided to keep things going ,you ain’t shit baby lol you gone burn in hell for that mayne lol, you dirtier than dirt mayne, Ooooweee you lower than fly shit and ain’t nothen lower than fly shit, but that’s buissness hu?all the big mogul’s cut the throat that makes them rich, slaves if you will, y’all so bumb good luck because you signed up wit the devils gang time to pay I guess

    • Pretty much what likely happened.These young and upcoming artist are easily impressed by the material items..bling, designer clothing, luxury cars, money, women, and all that goes with that lifestyle. They get sucked in because they want these things. I think that most of them were teens back when they signed with Cash Money Records. I don;’t even know if they understood what they were signing or getting. That’s when having some good counsel by an adult who understands the business and has their best interest at hand would have come in handy. Its been a long time.If he is owed any royalty /publishing money I hope that he gets it but dealing with that label and being able to prove it ..that might be tough. Isn’t Lil Wayne the labels biggest money maker trying to part ways with Birdman at least business wise?He seems to be the only one who has achieved some lengthy success from that group.

  4. LMAOOO! on top you crazy lol, but that’s a good observation,lol I believe sum like that happen lol, usually that’s how they hook slaves pardon me artist lol, yeah you bout right

    • doubt turk gets anything.

      don’t understand how baby got money problems unless baby’s spending more than hes making.

      drake, nicki, and young thug is selling records and baby gets paid off whatever drake and nicki does so if they do guest appearances baby gets paid and baby’s STILL MAKING MONEY FROM THE STUFF WAYNE AND ALL THE OLD CASH MONEY STUFF.

      AND ALL THE GUEST APPEARANCES WAYNE DID BABY GOT PAID FROM THAT TOO.

  8. Yall repeat the same BS day after day on here, its like going to church, does anyone have an alternate perspective of things instead of the same old “illuminati” “money cant buy you love , “wheres jackie” yadayada BORING NEXT

  9. when it comes to money some black people aren’t smart, it’s really sad these singers or rappers
