Birdman’s Cash Money Records Ordered to Pay $1.1 Million Over Jay Sean’s Albums
Cash Money Records has been struggling in a mire of legal cases that they can’t seem to get out of. Last month, a judge ordered the label to pay Orange Factory Music monies owed on Jay Sean’s two albums.
On Jan. 27, Magistrate Judge Karen Wells Roby ruled that Cash Money owes production group Orange Factory Music $1.14 million in royalties for their work on two of the British singer’s albums, 2009’s All or Nothing and 2012’s Japan release, So High.
For the record, Jay Sean, who left Cash Money in 2014, is not involved in this litigation.
According to HipHopDX, Cash Money Records CEO Birdman has 21 days to pay the production group the money. Good luck with that.
News of Orange Factory Music’s lawsuit comes as Birdman is still facing legal action from Lil Wayne who wants off of Cash Money despite their recent reconciliation. A former employee is suing Baby for unfair work practices. And finally, a construction company recently filed a $1 million lawsuit against Birdman for monies owed on a renovation job at his Miami mansion.
If Birdman keeps this up, he might have to change his label name from Cash Money to Attorney Fees. We’re just saying.
Lawyers for Birdman and Cash Money Records had no comment on the legal matter.
