Turk Files Lawsuit Against Cash Money Records

Another card is pulled from the house that Birdman and his brother Slim built. The Hot Boy$' Turk sued Cash Money Records for rights to his music and some 1.3 million in damages, reports TMZ.

The group, which also includes B.G., Juvenile and Lil Wayne, released two albums with Cash Money/Universal, including the platinum-selling Guerilla Warfare. They disbanded in 2001 amid previous rumors of the label not paying artists. 

Turk, who also recorded solo music, claims the label's accounting practices were faulty and that CM kept earnings from him, which he believes makes their contract void.


The court docs emerge a month after it was revealed that Weezy was backing up his online shots at CM with a suit of his own, claiming he's owed $51 million in monies from his solo career and as founder of Young Money.

Not all of the original artists are putting Baby in the corner, however. Juvenile announced he re-signed with the label in October of 2014.
