Cash Money and its artists seem to get hit with a new lawsuit every few months. The latest comes via EMI, who claim that Baby and Slim WIlliams' label owes $491,000 in unpaid royalties. The amount stems from a settlement between the parties in 2009 for samples from EMI artists that appear on Young Money records. You can read a portion of the lawsuit below via Courthouse News Service.
“Because Defendant has ignored numerous communications from EMI regarding Defendant’s contractual obligations, EMI once more is being forced to commence a lawsuit against Defendant to recover royalty payments,” the complaint states. “The sales of Defendant’s products have far exceeded the payments that EMI has received.”
“It is clear from Defendant’s conduct that it has no intention of honoring the Agreement,” the complaint continues.
