Cash Money Records Sued For Not Paying Royalties AGAIN!!

Cash Money records is, once again, under fire for not paying royalties.

According to Courthouse News Service via Soul Culture, music giant EMI is suing Cash Money because the label simply ceased quarterly royalty payments they had agreed to make as part of a 2009 settlement between the parties.

Cash Money allegedly owes $491,000 in royalties for samples from EMI's catalog.
“Because Defendant has ignored numerous communications from EMI regarding Defendant’s contractual obligations, EMI once more is being forced to commence a lawsuit against Defendant to recover royalty payments,” the complaint states. “The sales of Defendant’s products have far exceeded the payments that EMI has received. It is clear from Defendant’s conduct that it has no intention of honoring the Agreement,” the complaint continues

“Because Defendant has ignored numerous communications from EMI regarding Defendant’s contractual obligations, EMI once more is being forced to commence a lawsuit against Defendant to recover royalty payments,” states the complaint. “The sales of Defendant’s products have far exceeded the payments that EMI has received. It is clear from Defendant’s conduct that it has no intention of honoring the Agreement.”


The turn of events is somewhat less than shocking, as the house that Slim and Birdman built has been a near-constant target for lawsuits over the past several years. Plaintiffs in previous cases have included Bangladesh, producer T-Mix, Done Deal Enterprises, producer David Kirkwood, Bridgeport Music, "Lollipop" producer Deezle & Jim Jonsin, "Got Money" producers Play-N-Skillz,and many, many more. Also of note are high-profile controversies with Mannie Fresh and Wendy Day over money.

This is how ignorant n*ggas run a business

Baby, Slim and Lil Wayne need to have an actual person at the office that runs things because these n*ggas WILL get prosecuted in a federal court and get ripped apart if they keep playing these producers, songwriters, engineers and sample owners like suckas. There's a case from the 80s where a label refused to pay samples for songs and it went on for years until the supreme court ruled that the sample owners to get half of the label and half what ever the label made.

You can't keep throwing stones at Jay-Z, 50 Cent, Diddy if you can't even pay off samples....cornballs

Oh and the excuse Bangladesh and other producers/songwriters used about getting fu*ked over by YMCMB but still working with them is because they are the hottest.....they wouldn't be the hottest if you keep giving them beats/songs for them to get paid off of

Slim and Birdman settled on this number back in 09 and still ain't pay... We see how Diddy's shady business practices back in his early days came back to bite him now! If Diddy was white and not in the public eye like Clive Davis, He would not have nothing to worry about. But being that him and Birdman want to be in every music video, live performance, interview, and picture its going to hurt Old Bird Bath in the long run! Plus EMI is not to be fu*ked with!

You havent seen "Victory" cause they keep making promises to these guys....They keep giving these guys incentives and theyre falling for it...Its a worthy gamble.


I mean the 3 artists they have, Wayne/Drake/Nicki are the hottest out right now. They know that yeah you can sue, but you wont get put on any of those projects....if you want your name in lights tho youre gonna have to play ball. So we'll make a promise about paying you going forward, and just screw you again.

And ending up producing on one of those 3 albums automatically means youre gonna get requests from Every A&R/Major/Manager in the game. Bangladesh didnt get his Royalties from Lil Waynes A milli, but he did turn around and get Gucci Manes Lemonade, and BEYONCES Diva record.

So n*ggas are still getting paid AFTER producing for em...its just fu*kd up they arent getting paid from the first job lol.


I saw 1 of the producers, whose personal page im friends with, publicly say "Still waiting on 60 grand from Universal/Cash Money....but n*ggas supposedly bet a Milli on a basketball game"

Are people afraid to request their $$$$$$ up front from YMCM?

Is that not standard music business procedure?

Like it or not,YMCM is the hottest and most popular label around currently. People are always going to want to work with them or for them,regardless if they jack motherfu*kers out of their money or not.
When producing you are gonna get some cash up front....but thats nothing compared to the publishing/royalties you get from records being on the charts for 3-6 months, featured in commercials, featured in sporting events, remade/remixed, sampled and so on.


Think about it like this...We all know the song "macarena" has been used everywhere, over a billion fu*king times. Ima pay you 10 grand up front, but that extraordinary amount of cash thats generated from the 300 fu*kin commercials/movies/tv shows/sports events/blahblah blah wont come your way at all. Im keeping all thatfrom you.



One hit single can mean more than anything. Dream recently said after all the publishing they made, the remixes, and being #1 in over 8-10 countries with Rihannas umbrella, he made 15 million off that one song. He didnt get paid that up front however

every thing i ever got placed with them...they have paid royalties on time


a milli bangladesh failed to tell the interviewer how the sample from the that...dude who he sampled came in and took a majority of the backend money for the clearance

when they get sued for sample clearances etc etc and the album goes into litigation that in turns causes a freeze into royalty payouts (it happens even at the majors at times)

i remember def jam took 16 months to pay the runners for tm102 tracks front and back end

cash money gets a bad rap for this.....but there is a lot of cases were n*ggas been paid on time and in full
