Babygrande Records is being sued over unpaid royalties for Wiz Khalifa's album Deal or No Deal. Malbon Brothers Farms, which provided marketing services for the album, claims that they were to receive 20 percent of all net profits from album sales for promoting the record. The company received $8,701.73 and say that Babygrande Records' CEO Chuck Wilson "cross-collateralized" album-related expenses like the label's marketing, distribution, and selling fees.
Malbon Brothers Farms filed the suit in the Supreme Court of the State of New York, stating that the situation has cost them at least $200,000 in damages and are still owed 20 percent from the album's net profits because the label tacked on extra expenses to reduce the amount owed to them.
