Over the years, T-Pain and Lil Wayne have collaborated on a number of hit singles. The dynamic duo even teamed up for a joint album called T-Wayne. Its safe to say those days are now over, because he’s taking Wayne to court.
T-Pain’s Nappy Boy Productions is suing Wayne and his Young Money label for work done on Wayne’s multi-platinum album, Tha Carter III.
According to TMZ, the singer says he produced and was featured on the hit single “Got Money”, which appears on Carter III. If that was not enough drama, Nappy Boy artist Young Fyre produced Wayne’s “How to Hate” record from Tha Carter IV.
Court documents reveal that T-Pain, 32, was to be paid in the form of royalties by Young Money for his contributions. But to date, he has seen nothing.
Tha Carter III sold over 3 million copies in the United States, and T-Pain and Nappy Boy Productions believe that are owed more than $500,000 in shocking lawsuit.
Wayne is no stranger to the courts. He’s been battling his longtime label Cash Money and its co-founder Birdman over the last two years, seeking $51 million dollars in unpaid royalties. Wayne has also sued Universal Music Group over profits pertaining to Young Money artists Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga.
Aside from the lawsuit, T-Pain is gearing up to release his next project entitled, OBLiViON, set to release November 17; whereas Lil Wayne still has the world anxiously awaiting the arrival of his Tha Carter V album.
