The Mogul demands his due
Rap mogul and CEO of Rap-A-Lot records, James Prince, has been having issues with Birdman’s stingy activity when it comes to Drake and Lil Wayne’s payouts. Both of the Cash Money Records artists have had their issues with Birdman in the past, and now J. Prince has come out in a video claiming, “we’re coming for it.”
J. Prince, who has had experience in squashing beefs, sounds like he’s finally coming out to say “enough is enough.” How he plans on ending this overdrawn issue is a completely different story…
Why does J. Prince care?
Alongside establishing himself as a successful boxing promoter, James Prince cultivated Houston’s place in hip hop history with Rap-A-Lot records. From the late 80’s until the 2000’s Rap-A-Lot was home to legends like the Geto Boys and Scarface.
Jas Prince brought Drake from Aspire to Birdman’s Cash Money Records in 2007. The Prince family soon found out that Birdman wasn’t the best at paying back royalties and eventually had an $11 million law suit.
Lil Wayne’s Trouble
Wayne and Cash Money have been going at it since 2015 for Birdman’s strong-arm approach to managing royalties. These issues have led to multiple lawsuits over Young Money payouts for Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga, as well as the holdup of Wayne’s highly anticipated album Tha Carter V.
In the following video, J. Prince taps himself in on Lil Wayne’s team, and you won’t believe how he plans on getting this money back…
