David Banner Files Lawsuit Against Lil Wayne, Young Money

Veteran MC claims he wasn't paid royalties for produced tracks.

A new hip hop drama is being played out in court.

Lil Wayne filed a lawsuit against Cash Money earlier this year, now Weezy is being sued by another rapper over royalties.

According to TMZ, veteran MC and producer David Banner claims to have signed a contract in 2008 with Wayne's Young Money label to produce two songs — "La La" and "P**** Monster" — on Weezy's Tha Carter III album, but that he never received the $138,787.19 in royalties that the imprint told him he was owed in 2012.

Banner also claims he's owed upwards of $15,000 for producing "Streets Is Watchin" off the 2009 compilation album We Are Young Money.

Banner joins a host of artists who have claimed to not have been fully compensated for their work with the YMCMB label.
