Lil Wayne & Drake Refuse To Pay $400,000 In Lawsuit x Weezy Watches Celtics vs. Heat Game

Lil Wayne & Drake Refuse To Pay 400,000 In Lawsuit x Weezy Watches Celtics vs Heat Game

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne and Drake are being sued for $432,337.50 by Imperial Entertainment Group for not turning up to a club appearance back in 2011. Weezy and Drizzy are both refusing to pay the money, which the judge ordered them to do so, because they say they were never told about the event and never signed any official contracts about it.

They also say that Imperial Entertainment Group used a third party, Melanzh Enterprises, to book them but that party had no authority to do so. The two rappers are currently asking the court to dismiss the judgement. You can read more info about the lawsuit after the jump below.

Also after the jump, I have added another photo of Tune watching the Boston Celtics vs. Miami Heat game court-side at the American Airlines Arena in Florida from last night (May 28th).

New Lil Wayne Scan & Quote From Ozone Magazine
“Pistol on my neck, you don’t wanna hear that thing talk!”

Check out a new photo of Lil Wayne from the latest issue of Ozone Magazine, which is in stores now! You can also read what he tells Ozone in their sex issue about why he is a great Father to his kids:

“I’m not on child support with none of my kids cause I’m a great father. So it’s not determined by how much money you’re paying at all. That’s not what it’s about. It’s about being there and being that important person in their lives. It’s about being #1 or #2 in their life. That’s very important for your child, to make sure you’re that #1 or #2. Because if you’re not, you know what #1 or #2 could end up being. That’s the most important thing of all. I just try to make sure I’m of the highest importance in their lives, next to their moms.”

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!

Lil Wayne’s Manager Disputes Bahamas Lawsuit Account

Cortez Bryant

Lil Wayne’s manager is countering a Bahamian promoter’s claim that the rapper missed 2008 concert because he was “unconscious” at the time of the scheduled performance.

On Thursday July 9 TMZ.com reported that Red City Entertainment had filed a lawsuit against the multi-platinum artist in regards to a missed appearance on September 27 of last year. More information on that can be read here.

The promoters claim that when Wayne was a no-show at the venue, police officers discovered him unconscious in his hotel room.

Red City’s suit seeks a total of $432,000, with $210,000 of the amount representing Wayne’s advance, and the rest covering travel and other expenses tied to the show.

But Wayne’s manager, Cortez Bryant, offers a much different account of the events.

In a statement sent to AllHipHop.com, Bryant explained that the September 27 date was actually a make up date for a concert scheduled the day before.

“Our show was set for September 26th last year,” Bryant explained. “We arrived on time, ready to perform and learned that due to lack of payment from the promoters. The sound company they had hired packed up and left the venue before Wayne was scheduled to hit the stage. So they were forced to cancel the show. On those grounds, at that moment, they were in breach of contract and forfeited their deposit.”

Bryant went on to explain that after several requests by the promoters, Wayne agreed to reschedule the show for the 27th, his birthday, despite having made it abundantly clear that he did not want to work on that date.

But Wayne’s agreement to perform was contingent on the promoters’ promise to ensure that all arrangements surrounding the performance were up to a certain standard, Bryant said.

“I presented their case to Wayne and he said he would do it if the promoters had everything right, based on our contract,” he added. “I then told the promoters to extend our rooms and if, and only if, there were no problems at the venue, then he would take the stage.

“When I arrived at the venue, the security was horrible, causing it to be an unsafe environment and the sound system wasn’t up to our contracted standard,” Bryant continued. “I then told the promoters Wayne wasn’t coming because they didn’t have their setup to a contracted standard for the second night in a row.”

Hmm, what do you think of this then ❓ Seems fair as it was his birthday after all 🙂

Bonus: Lil Wayne’s hectic touring schedule last year contributed heavily to the total earnings of $18 million that landed him the number six position on the 2009 Forbes’ list of Hip-Hop Cash Kings.

PS: A website has made out that they have leaked an exclusive Young Money song, well just for a heads up – It is old and has been ripped from Lil Chuckee‘s YouTube account… so this why I am not posting it 🙂
