Turk Shares His Thoughts On Lil Wayne Suing Birdman, Says He Was Promised A Hot Boys Reunion

Turk Shares His Thoughts On Lil Wayne Suing Birdman

Former Cash Money Records label-mate and Hot Boys member Turk recently spoke to SOHH about Lil Wayne wanting to get out of his contract with Cash Money and to share his thoughts on Wayne‘s feud with Birdman.

Turk explains that this is all old news to him and believes it is not a publicity stunt, because Baby was also not paying his artists years ago when he left Cash Money with Juvenile, B.G., and Mannie Fresh.

You can read what Turk thinks about this situation after the jump below. He also spoke on the Weezy vs. Birdman beef a couple of months ago in another interview, so click here to listen to that if you missed it!

UPDATE: I have included a video below of Turk explaining on TMZ Live that he is also suing Birdman for over $1 million, because he was promised royalty money and a Hot Boys reunion after he was released from prison, but got nothing from him either.

Lil Wayne Gets Sued In Prison Once Again…

Lil Wayne Gets Sued In Prison For A Milli

This time, the producer Bangladesh is suing Lil Wayne for Tha Carter III single – “A Milli“. Weezy has previously been sued for a few C3 tracks including: “Got Money“, “Mrs. Officer“, “Lollipop“, “Playing With Fire“, and now “A Milli“. Check out what Bangladesh said about Wayne below when VIBE asked him if he will be collaborating with Tune again on Tha Carter IV:

Lil Wayne may be locked in Rikers Island away from the industry, but that’s not stopping some of his associates from handling business with him. Grammy award-winning producer, Shondrae “Bangladesh” Crawford has a bone to pick with Mr. Dwayne Carter. A $500,000 bone.

“I don’t fuck with Lil Wayne… and you can print that,” Bangladesh told VIBE, when asked if fans should anticipate a reunion come his 2011 release. “Cash Money don’t pay royalties. Tha Carter III, is his biggest album probably because of “A Milli”. But you have to sue these guys so that they pay up.”

The Atlanta beatmaker disclosed that he is suing for an estimated 500 Gs in owed royalty checks for his work on “A Milli“, one of Wayne‘s most revered records of all time. A single that earned him Best Rap Solo Performance at the 2009 Grammy’s and gave Tha Carter III ammunition to sell a million records it’s first week of release in June 2008.

“It’s Wayne and Baby’s responsibility to pay me because all the money from album sales goes to Cash Money. I get checks from Sony for Beyonce, checks from different labels for different artists, it just comes to you. You don’t have to call them, sue them and all that junk. This is what you’re owed.”

He continues, “I don’t really give a fuck about Wayne. I can’t give a fuck about somebody that don’t give a fuck about my situation, I have kids. In the hood, people get killed for ten dollars. I couldn’t imagine owing someone hundreds of thousands of dollars and just walking around in front of them. I’m so confident in myself, that I don’t need Lil Wayne. There’s gonna be so many opportunities. I can create a Lil Wayne“.

Jim Jonsin Sues Lil Wayne For $500,000

Jim Jonsin Sues Lil Wayne For 500000

Last year, Lil Wayne got hit with a lawsuit for one of his tracks that leaked called “I Feel Like Dying“, because of a sample clearance problem. Then in April last year, Wayne sued Jim Jonsin who was the producer of the beat saying that it was his job to make sure they had the rights to use the sample.

Now, Jim Jonsin has filed a $500,000 lawsuit against Weezy over his hit single – “Lollipop“. Jim, who is the producer of “Lollipop” and helped write the track is saying that Wayne hasn’t paid anything in royalties for his work on the song that went to number one in the USA.

I really don’t know why Jim Jonsin is only just filing this lawsuit though… like why has it took him so long ❓ Also, it looks like Lil Wayne is getting sued for most of Tha Carter III album singles. First it was “Mrs. Officer“, then “Got Money“, and now “Lollipop“. Plus we all know Weezy is currently in jail, so I’m guessing Birdman will help sort this problem out, because the last thing Wayne needs is more legal trouble!
