Mobb Deep member Prodigy sued his label Universal Music Group last year for $57,489 in royalties plus lawyer fees.
He has just settled the suit. He got all of the royalty money and the legal fees -- which turned out to be almost 100K.
But before he gets his $153,751, he had to send out a very specific tweet. Or rather tweets, since the required message was over 140 characters.
My dispute with UMPG was all a misunderstanding.— PRODIGY MOBBDEEP (@PRODIGYMOBBDEEP) March 1, 2016
Thankful that we resolved it quickly and happy to be continuing my long-standing relationship with UMPG. — PRODIGY MOBBDEEP (@PRODIGYMOBBDEEP) March 1, 2016
So that's almost 77K a Tweet. Somewhere Kanye West is trying to figure out how to get in on this action.
