Tyga Sues Birdman Over Royalties

Tyga wants his money from Cash Money.

(AllHipHop News) Rapper Tyga has given music mogul Bryan "Birdman" Williams another legal headache after suing him over royalties.

The "Rack City" hitmaker claims Birdman, bosses at his Cash Money record label, and executives at Young Money Entertainment owe him at least $1 million in royalties for his albums Careless World and Hotel California.

The rapper, real name Micheal Stevenson, is suing for breach of contract, the money he is owed, and attorneys' fees.

Last year, Tyga, who cut his ties with his former record label bosses in 2015, claimed he had to pay to dump his contract and was still owed "at least $12 million."

Tyga revealed he was waiting to file suit until after Lil Wayne completed his $51 million royalties battle against his former mentor, Williams, and his brother Ronald 'Slim' Williams, accusing them of withholding money he was owed for his long-delayed album Tha Carter V.
