It’ll be Lil Wayne vs. UMG in the case of royalties totaling over $10 Million, that were paid to the label instead of him! The unpaid royalties are not just for his music though. In a partnership agreement Wayne has with Universal Music, Wayne is to collect 49% of profits from Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, and other artists.
UMG claims the allegations are false.
In a statement made by Wayne’s attorney he said that, “Universal should be grateful and respectful to lil wayne for the millions of dollars in distribution fees and profits they have earned on the artists he brought to the company, instead of seizing all of his profits on those artists in a desperate attempt to recoup the tens of millions of dollars they are owed by Cash Money Records.”
