David Banner Wins $150,000 Lawsuit Against Lil Wayne’s Young Money Records
Banner said the label owed him upwards of $150,000 for production he did on The Carter III and We Are Young Money, saying that he specifically hadn't been compensated for three songs. According to documents obtained by TMZ, because Young Money never responded to the suit, a judge issued a default judgment that will give Banner a payment of $164,303.19, which includes interest.
Beyond the lawsuit, David Banner has been busy taking the establishment to task, per usual, in the light of recent police shootings and the upcoming presidential elections. As for Wayne, he's been focused on handling a lawsuit of his own against Cash Money Records. He's suing the record company for $51 million, and just yesterday, it was announced that a judge ordered label CEO Birdman to open his books to account for the all of the money that Lil Wayne says he never received.
In the meantime, at least one lawsuit has been settled.
