This is unimaginably tragic.
The team did release a statement on the matter, though (below):
And today, it appears that the rapper is up against TWO!
That's right, two separate producers, Andrews "Drew" Correa and Marcos "Infamous" Rodriguez, have filed federal suits this week against his label, Young Money Entertainment, over claims that they were stiffed out of some serious royalties!
According to Correa, he inked a production deal in 2008 with Weezy that led to his music appearing on Tha Carter III, I'm Not A Human Being, and Priceless, and after receiving SOME of what he was owed, the payments stopped altogether!
Meanwhile, Rodriguez asserts he came onboard in 2007, and his compositions were used on Tha Carter III, Re-Birth, We Are Young Money, Tha Carter IV, and Priceless…and once again, same story, no payments!
Both men are being represented by Singh, Singh and Trauben for missing wages, and so far, Young Money has nothing to say in regards to the cases!
Well, if these claims have any merit, we sincerely hope that both parties are compensated accordingly!
And it doesn't take a court order to make it happen!
That's not exactly the way you want to be known for doing business!
Tisk, tisk, tisk!
