Cash Money Records can’t seem to catch a break from lawsuits. Tyga is suing his former record labels, Cash Money and Young Money, claiming they haven’t fully paid him over the years. Tyga is reportedly suing for unpaid royalties from his 2012 and 2013 albums, TMZ reports.

After signing a deal in 2009, Tyga released two albums, Careless World: Rise of the Last King and Hotel California, eventually released in 2012 and 2013, respectively, and made it to No. 4 and No. 7 on the Billboard 200.

According to Tyga, Cash Money and Young Money agreed to pay him all of the royalties he was owed in 2016, but he never saw a coin. Tyga claims he’s repeatedly tried to get his money but hasn’t been successful. He is now reportedly seeking $10 million.

This isn’t the first time Young Money has been hit with a lawsuit for unpaid royalties. Tyga joins T-Pain and David Banner who’ve also sued Birdman’s label over the years for non-payment.
