U-God Sues RZA & The Wu-Tang Clan Over Unpaid Royalties

(AllHipHop News) There appears to be a legal fracture taking place within the Wu-Tang Clan.

According to TMZ, Wu member U-God is suing the rest of the group and its de facto leader RZA for $2.5 million.

The website reports:

In the docs filed in NYC, U-God says he’s contributed to about 170 tracks for the group since its inception in 1993 … but says he hasn’t been getting his share of royalties off 12 Wu-Tang albums, for at least the last 6 years.

U also says his Wu contract requires him to get 2 annual payments for his share of merchandising dough, but says he’s been cut off from that too.

U-God is seeking a full accounting of Wu-Tang’s revenue streams.

The legendary rap collective released A Better Tomorrow in 2014.

A year later, the one-of-a-kind LP Once Upon A Time In Shaolin was sold for a reported $2 million.
