David Banner Files Lawsuit Against Young Money!!!

It’s been years since David Banner porduced the Carter III for Lil Wayne and he still hasn’t been fully paid, so David Banner Files Lawsuit Against Young Money.

CelebNMusic247.com has learned that David Banner is looking for over $100,000 in royalties for his contributions to the Young Money catalog.

Here’s the drop via HNHH:

Cash Money doesn’t exactly have the best reputation with paying its artists, and generally, producers get an even stiffer deal. From Mannie Fresh to Bangladesh, we’ve seen many beatmakers express frustration with collecting what they’re owed from the label, and today, David Banner has joined the club.

The Mississippi songwriter has filed a lawsuit with Young Money (the imprint Wayne is currently attempting to cut from teh Cash Money Umbrella), claiming he was promised $137,787.19 in royalties back in 2012. The tracks named are Tha Carter III’s batshit banger, “La La,” and experimental fan favorite, “Pussy Monster,” (which, as far as we know, never appeared on an official project).

He also says he’s owed $15,392.57 alone for We Are Young Money album cut, “Streets Is Watchin'”.

With the legal battles between Wayne and Birdman still raging, it’s not clear who’ll have to pay the bill on this one. We’ll keep you up to dat with any new information.

This seems to be the theme for Young Money head honcho, Lil Wayne, who loves to floss his riches and allegedly NOT pay the people who helped him become a mogul.

Thoughts?
