T-Pain Files Lawsuit Against Lil Wayne Over Royalties For “Carter 3”
T-Pain and Lil Wayne will likely not be doing anymore music together after the auto-tune singer threw the Young Money emcee a curve ball in the form of a lawsuit. TMZ reported that T-Pain’s company Nappy Boy Productions has filed a lawsuit against Young Money Records for hundreds of thousands of dollars owed. According to the suit, T-Pain produced Lil Wayne’s song “Get Money” which also features the hip hop singer.
Pain also added that his artists Young Fyre also produced the song “How to Hate” on Wayne’s album “Tha Carter IV” but never get paid. T-Pain says that the deal was for Young Money to pay him royalties which was not forthcoming. The album “Tha Carter III” was released in 2008 and sold 3.2 million copies in the United States alone.
T-Pain believes that he and his artist Young Fyre are owed at least $500,000 and he wants Young Money to pay up. This is the latest lawsuit in the ongoing legal battle between Lil Wayne, Birdman and Cash Money. Young Money is a subsidiary of Cash Money Records. Weezy is already suing Cash Money for $51 million and says he wants a judge to release him from the label for breach of contract.
