Tupac Shakur Estate Facing Lawsuit Over Unpaid Royalties For “Bury Me A G”
(AllHipHop News) In many ways, this month has been huge for Tupac Shakur’s legacy.
Unfortunately, June is winding down with some legal news connected to Pac.
The Shakur Estate is facing a lawsuit about a song released over twenty years ago.
Natasha Walker — who was in the R&B group Y?N-Vee — sang backups on “Bury Me a G” and even has a credit on the track. But in docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she and Pac made a deal in ’93 that the song would be a joint effort and she’d have equal ownership.
Walker is seeking compensation for royalties, damages, and attorney’s fees.
She may have an uphill battle since the statute of limitations for contract claims in the state of California is four years.
Walker’s lawyer is claiming her client still deserves payment from “Bury Me a G” because the track continues to make money for the Estate.
