Lil Wayne’s Young Money Label Owes $164K To David Banner

Lil Wayne can't seem to stay away from the legal-label-drama. Ironically, as he's fighting to win his case against Birdman and Cash Money, rapper David Banner filed and won his lawsuit against Wayne's own, Young Money Records. Last year Banner claimed the label owed him more than $160K for work he lent a hand on, including three songs from Tha Carter III and We Are Young Money.

Early this week, Young Money Records failed to acknowledge the Mississippi MC's case and by default, Banner won his suit and is to be awarded with $164,303.19 including interest.

Banner, who signed in 2008 with Wayne's Young Money Records, is responsible for producing bannerwayne"La La", "P***y Monster" (Tha Carter III) and "Streets Is Watchin'" (We Are Young Money). Banner alleged in 2012 he never saw a cent even though YM stated they owed him $138,787.19 in royalties, plus $15,392.57 for "Streets Is Watchin'". To make matters worse, he claimed YM had gone radio silent and no longer knew exactly how much additionally he was owed.

Whether Banner will continue to fight for the unknown, he's got a $164K check coming his way. Wonder if Wayne's hoping to use his monies from a Birdman/Cash Money victory. Hmm..
