Cash Money Records has a long history of not paying people what it owes them.
Cash Money don Birdman was recently hit with a $200,000 lawsuit by producer DVLP, who claims he was never paid for his work on Lil Wayne's music and music by other Cash Money artists. Despite assurances of "I'm getting yu paid" and "I'm working with yu fam," Birdman never delivered the goods.
It's a familiar story that has repeated itself on end since Birdman founded Cash Money Records with his brother in 1991. Birdman doesn't people pay what he owes, and with an estimated net worth of $170 million, he isn't afraid to lawyer up and duke it out in court.
