Birdman Fires Back After Tyga Claims Cash Money Owes Him $12 Million
Everything might seem cool between Tyga and Cash Money after he left the label to join Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music back in 2016, but the 27-year-old rapper recently revealed that his former label owes him at least $12 million. Speaking on “The Breakfast Club”, T-Raww also claimed that he had to pay $1 million to get out of his contract.
“I had to pay to get out,” he said. “I paid to get out. Now mind you, I’m owed like, probably like….at least twelve, fifteen million they owe me.” He went on saying that he didn’t plan to sue Cash Money over the financial dispute.
He only wished his fellow rapper Lil Wayne, who filed a $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money back in 2015, could get what he’s owed. “I’m in a position to where it’s like I just want Wayne to get what he’s owed,” Tyga added. “I don’t wanna throw nothing more on that situation. I want to see Wayne kinda like prosper with that, and then I can go see.”
Cash Money CEO Bridman was not happy with Tyga’s claim, and quickly shut down the allegations. According to TMZ, Birdman said that Cash Money didn’t owe anything to the “Hookah” rapper. A source close to Birdman told the site, “What person says they won’t sue if they’re owed $12 million?” The source further claimed that Cash Money wasn’t hesitant to let Tyga go as his album sales had been stagnant.
