Lil Wayne's Record Label Accused of Ripping Off Two Music Producers
 

 

Lil Wayne's record label allegedly stiffed a couple music producers out of their cut of the royalties from some of rap's biggest albums ... this according to two separate lawsuits.

Two different producers -- Andrews "Drew" Correa and Marcos "Infamous" Rodriguez -- filed federal lawsuits this week against Wayne's label, Young Money Entertainment.

In lawsuit #1 ... Correa says he inked a deal with YME in 2008 to produce music for a YME artist. He claims that music ended up on mega albums like "Carter III," "Re-Birth," "I'm Not a Human Being" and "Priceless."

Correa says he was paid some royalties by YME, but the payments stopped coming out of the blue.

In lawsuit #2 ... Rodriguez claims he signed on in 2007 to produce music for YME and claims his compositions were used on the albums “Carter III," "Re-Birth," "We Are Young Money," "Carter IV" and "Priceless."

He claims YME stopped making royalty payments and refuses to cough up any more cash.

Both producers hired Singh, Singh and Trauben to sue the pants off YME for the missing pay days.

We reached out to YME for comment ... but so far, no luck.

That single was huge, if they screwed that guy, then got damn

Damn..... They screwed the sh*t out of that guy if he produced that...

He produced a lot of songs for YME... Look at this...

Damn.... I wonder if Joe Satriani got paid to.... They did sample one of his songs for "Right Thru Me"...

I KNOW they better pay him...

I'm shocked beyond f#cking belief!

I think the arrogance and bullying nature of this label will ultimately be their demise. Their fans will stop supporting their movement. Fans buy albums to support the artist not the label.
