Rapper Lil Wayne And His Record Label Mentor Bryan 'Birdman' Williams Are Reportedly Facing A Lawsuit From A Producer Over Unpaid Royalties.
Bosses at Nightrydas LLC and producer Maurice Jordan are suing the hip hop stars, claiming they entered into a non-exclusive agreement with Wayne and his Young Money record label executives to produce songs in 2011 and 2012.
As per the agreement, producers would receive a $15,000 (£10,000) advance and four per cent of the songs' sales. However, Jordan claims he only received partial payments before they completely stopped.
Company executives are suing over breach of contract and are seeking unspecified damages, according to TheJasmineBrand.com.
The record label bosses have been involved in a slew of royalties disputes recently including ones with rapper Turk and Jas Prince, which were both settled last year (15).
Lil Wayne is also currently embroiled in a $51 million (£34 million) lawsuit against Williams and his brother Ronald 'slim' Williams after accusing them of withholding money he's owed for his album Tha Carter V. Despite their legal battle, the two reunited at an appearance at Club LIV in Miami earlier this month (Jan16).
