Young Money rappers Lil Wayne and Drake say "there is no way in hell" they're going to give $400,000 to a company that's suing them for allegedly missing a club appearance, TMZ reports.
Weezy and Drake claim they were never even told about the gig, never signed any contracts, and were never even given papers about appearing in court. According to TMZ, a judge ordered the duo to pay $432,337.50 to Imperial Entertainment Group who are accusing the artists of promising to perform at a 2011 event and then no showing.
Wayne and Drake are alleging that IEG used a third party called Melanzh entertainment to book them. They say that party had no such authority to book them, XXL Mag reports.
The YMCMB members' legal teams are asking that the court dismiss the $432,337,50 judgment as soon as possible, HipHopDX reports.
XXL Mag reports that earlier this month, Lil Wayne had to deal with another lawsuit. This one was from a "disgruntled" producer named David Kirkwood. Kirkwood sued Weezy, Cash Money, and Young Money Entertainment over royalties for Wayne's Track "Love Me Or Hate Me" off his Tha Carter III album.
Weezy settled with Kirkwood for $1.5 million.
2 weeks before that, he settled another lawsuit with producer Darius "Deezle" Harrison, TMZ reports. Harrison claimed he produced several songs off Tha Carter III
including "Lollipop" but was never paid for his work.
Darius said the album grossed over $70 million, and he wanted $20 million.
At first, Wayne said Harrison had no right to sue, but the 2 eventually came to an agreement and settled the case.
