Lil Wayne's Hip-Hop label Young Money Entertainment is accused of stiffing two different producers out of royalties in two separate lawsuits. Andrew "Drew" Correa filed a lawsuit against Young Money, claiming the label has not paid him royalties for producing tracks on albums like Tha Carter III, I'm Not A Human Being and others. Marcos "Infamous" Rodriguez also had an issue with royalty payments from Young Money, so he filed a lawsuit as well. According to Rodriguez, Young Money agreed to pay for production on albums like Carter IV, Re-Birth, We Are Young Money and others, but failed to live up to its obligations. Both men seek a full accounting and damages.
Big KRIT will share the stage with a variety of rap legend this September, during the 3rd annual ONE Musicfest in Atlanta. Artists like Santigold, Slick Rick, Doug E. Fresh and MC Lyte are confirmed on the bill, along with Marsha Ambrosius, formerly of Floetry, and singer Eric Roberson. "There is a lack of representation for soul, progressive Hip-Hop, alternative and rock, represented under one roof, in the format of music festivals in Atlanta", stated J Carter, ONE Musicfest's Producer. "We have noticed that while there are many pockets of individuals that share taste in the same music, rarely do you see them share in this together. ONE Musicfest was created with the idea of 'music as the universal language. Over time we aim to grow this fest into a phenomenon and bring together different sectors of individuals through a unique music platform." The ONE Musicfest will take place at the 4th Ward Historic Park during Labor Day Weekend. Tickets can be purchased at select retailers and online at http://onemusicfest.com
