Tyga spit a vicious freestyle for the LA Leakers earlier this month and now he’s suing both Birdman and Lil Wayne for unpaid royalties.
TMZ reports that Tyga signed an agreement with Young Money in 2009 to create the albums Careless World: Rise Of The Last King and Hotel California. The projects debuted at number four and seven respectively on Billboard’s Top 200 charts, but Tyga wasn’t paid full value for his work.
In 2016 Tyga spoke to both Birdman and Lil Wayne about settling their dispute and was promised compensation. Unfortunately, he was lied to again and now he’s suing both Cash Money and Young Money for a collective
$1 million $10 million.
This isn’t the first time Tyga has gone to battle with Birdman as the tables were reversed in 2015. Tyga released his The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty project exclusively through Spotify, which caused a dispute between the two with Birdman threatening to sue him.
Back in February, Tyga released his latest album Kyoto and the West Coast rapper recently shot a music video for his new single “SWISH.” He also appeared with Iggy Azalea in footage for their collaboration “Kream” last month.
