Rapper Tyga may have fine jewely, fancy cars and iced-out teeth, but it’s not due to Young Money/Cash Money Records…cause he claims they’re holding back his royalty checks! Hear Tyga explain how he’s "independent" yet signed to a major label inside…
During an interview with Power 105′s Breakfast Club, Tyga confirmed what Juvenile, B.G., Manny Fresh and other have claimed for years…..royalty checks from Young Money/Cash Money records don’t make it into the hands of the artists! Y’all know his baby moms Blac Chyna’s ears perked up when she heard there’s possibly more money to be had.
As Birdman and Co. have long been accused of "witholding" money from their artists, Tyga all but confirmed it on the air. But there’s no hard feelings as Tyga explained that he thinks of himself as an independent artist. He can still afford the bling and luxuries of the hip hop world through the tours and endorsements he secures on his own. He said,
"I never got a check from Young Money/Cash Money. But by me saying that, I’ve always treated my career like independent and everything that I got is because of myself, my own endorsements, me touring, myself. I think I got a signing bonus when I first signed but that was it.”
Damn! He added,
“I felt if I wanted to be independent…I could do that because it would be no difference. I would still tour, put out albums and still sell out shows.”
And he’s not holding any grudges because he’s got his money right,
"At a certain time, you get your money but at the same time, they pay for your videos and all that other stuff. But I never really was dependent on the label like that."
Tyga’s third solo album, Hotel California, is in stores now (but he won’t be getting many checks from it).
Watch Tyga break down his hustle here:
”I Never Really Was Dependent On the Label”
In an interview with Power 105′s “The Breakfast Club,” Young Money/Cash Money rapper Tyga revealed that he doesn’t make money from his record deal. In fact, aside from an advance, Tyga claims he’s never received a check from YMCMB.
“I never got a check from Young Money/Cash Money,” Tyga said in the interview. “But by me saying that, I’ve always treated my career like independent and everything that I got is because of myself, my own endorsements, me touring, myself. I think I got a signing bonus when I first signed but that was it.”
“At a certain time, you get your money but at the same time, they pay for your videos and all that other stuff. But I never really was dependent on the label like that,” Tyga added. “I felt if I wanted to be independent, I could do that because it would be no difference. I would still tour, put out albums and still sell out shows.”
Rappers, careful what you boast and brag about. Future’s first baby mama is taking the struggle falsetto king back to court over child support payments. She wants more cash.
In early January, Future came to terms with Jessica Smith over child support payments. A DNA test proved Future, born Nayvadius Wilburn Cash, was the father of a 10-year-old son. Citing a monthly income of ,516, Future agreed he would pay ,662 a month in child support.
However, Smith alleges that shortly thereafter the “Same Damn Time” rapper claimed to carry 25 large on his person at all times, reports TMZ. Note: This not that safest things to do in the hood, just saying.
Smith felts that she was duped, and immediately filed paperwork to get their child support terms updated. Smith claims Future makes K a month, which if the math stays the same would mean about ,000 in child support payments.
A couple of points to be made here. Rappers lie about their net worth all the time. But Future is making bank considering he is a hot commodity in the game and even has penning hits songs for Rihanna to his credit. Also worth noting, it seems like Future didn’t know about his son until Smith came out the woodwork and sued him last year. Where was she when he was broke? But hey, all the money will be going to the child, right? Just saying.
Future’s new album, Future Hendrix, is due out later this year.
A deadbeat dad in Milwaukee was busted over missed child support payments, after he posted photos on Facebook, confirming his money flow.
Christopher Robinson is father of a two year old, but has yet to make a single child support payment. He told the court that he was financially strapped, and therefore unable to support the toddler.
Suspicious of his statements, the Milwaukee County District Attorney’s Office was granted access to the 23-year-old’s Facebook page, which featured several posts of him with “wads of cash and liquor.”
The photos may be incriminating enough to lead to Robinson’s arrest. “It’s a great investigation tool for us because it gives us a glimpse into their real lives that our targets may be living,” explained Milwaukee County Chief Deputy District Attorney Kent Lovern. “What a photograph enables us to do is if somebody has more money than maybe they are indicating they do, that allows us to apply to the court for a search warrant.
“Generally what we are trying to do is make sure that parents fulfill their responsibilities to their children.”
Robinson now faces several felony charges.
DJ Victoriouz calls on Twist and Mouse for a visual to his latest track.
”I Knew That He Was the Perfect Fit…”
Birdman has announced that Florida-based artist T.RONE has joined Cash Money Records. In a press release, the labelhead welcomes the newest addition to the YMCMB family tree through a joint deal with his own Brooklyn Knights label. T.RONE’s breakout single is “Hello Love (F.U.)”
âFrom the moment I met T.Rone and heard him in the studio, I knew that he was a perfect fit for the YMCMB family,” says Birdman. âWhen Slim and I heard ‘Hello Love (F.U.)’ on Miamiâs 99Jamz, we knew we had made the right decision. Talent like that doesnât come along too often.â
âI have been a huge fan of Cash Money Records my whole life,” adds T.RONE. “Where I come from, Cash Money Records is considered the ‘real’ label; they came from the streets, just like myself and many of my peers. To be signed to Cash Money Records and have the chance to work with the YMCMB family is a dream come true and a badge of honor for the Kream Team family and me. What else can I say?â
Surprise, surprise; Cash Money Records is being sued. The record label is named in a 0,000 lawsuit over a Bow Wow song that illegally samples a song from 70′s group the Persuaders, allegedly.
The septuagenarian behind the lawsuit is Robert Poindexter from the 70s band The Persuaders.
Poindexter claims Cash Money sampled his band’s song “Love Gonna Pack Up (and Walk Out)” and illegally lifted the tune in Bow Wow’s 2010 track “Still Ballin.”
As for “Love Gonna Pack Up (and Walk Out)” — the song was recorded in 1972 and reached the top of the charts … and Poindexter says neither Cash Money nor Bow Wow ever obtained permission to sample it.
Reportedly Poindexter reached out to Bow Wow’s people first, only to be sent to Cash Money. However, Cash Money only referred him back to Bow Wow, so now he’s basically suing everybody.
Poindexter has already sued Kanye West and 50 Cent for similar circumstances. That said, be weary if you’re a producer and trying to use a Persuaders sample. Also, pay up.
70s Singer Says Sample Was Never Cleared
A song by Bow Wow has led to yet another lawsuit aimed at Cash Money Records. R&B singer Robert Poindexter of the Persuaders (of “Thin Line Between Love & Hate” fame) is suing the label over a sample used in Bow Wow’s 2010 track “Still Ballin.’”
Poindexter claims the song illegally uses the Persuaders’ “Love Gonna Pack Up (and Walk Out.)”
According to TMZ, Poindexter says that Cash Money Records never sought his permission for use of the song, which was an R&B hit back in 1972.
Cash Money has faced several high-profile lawsuits over the past couple of years, most of which have come from producers and songwriters claiming that they are owed royalties from the label.
Mac Miller featuring Prodigy – Confessions of a Cash Register (Produced by Alchemist & Larry Fisherman)
Mac Miller is back on his production tip, of course under his Larry Fisherman moniker, linking with Alchemist on the instrumental and Prodigy, who supplies a few bars. Mac also spits a verse on the intriguingly titled “Confessions of a Cash Register,” which is seemingly not slated to appear on any project. So while we wait on the joint work from the Pittsburgh rhymer and Pharrell, enjoy this short entry below.
