Judge Dismisses Cash Money Lawsuit Against DJ Drama

On Tuesday (Sept. 14) a New York federal judge dismissed a lawsuit filed against DJ Drama and several other music production companies, which claimed that the defendants failed to properly compensate Cash Money Records for songs distributed on several mixtapes.

Cash Money owners Bryan “Baby/Birdman” Williams and Ronald ‘Slim’ Williams accused Drama’s Aphilliates Music Group, BCD Music Group and Makin’ Moves Entertainment, among others, of making profits from mixtapes featuring Lil Wayne, without properly compensating the New Orleans rapper.

After review, the judge ruled that Cash Money had failed to present a “valid legal claim against [the] defendants,” and the case was tossed out. BCD Music Group lawyer Wallace Collins explained that the judge agreed with the defendants request to dismiss the case “with prejudice,” meaning that Cash Money has no grounds to appeal the ruling.

Throughout the entire legal proceeding, DJ Drama, who has worked closely with Lil Wayne in the past, maintained that his relationship with the Young Money rapper would not be affected. “The accusations against me are misplaced,” he said. “This is not a case of Lil Wayne vs DJ Drama. Me and Wayne are good. I am confident that this matter will be resolved quickly without harming the relationships between myself, Wayne and Cash Money Records.” The two have collaborated on a number of mixtapes in the past.
