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 toTMZ, 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.
