Yesterday, TMZ reported that T-Pain is suing Young Money for unpaid royalties.
Here's how they put it:
T-Pain's company, Nappy Boy Productions, is suing Young Money ... saying he produced Wayne's track, "Got Money," which also featured T-Pain. Further, TP says one of his artists, Young Fyre, produced "How to Hate" on "Tha Carter IV."Although Lil Wayne is the founder of Young Money, we didn't think that's who Pain was going after.
The old friends recently dropped the T-Wayne album together, and, anyway, we're under the impression Birdman and Slim ultimately control the purse strings at YM.
Pain confirmed some of that on Twitter.
♂️ I’m obviously not suing my brother guys. Come on now.— T-Pain (@TPAIN) November 1, 2017
But then he muddied the waters with this Tweet:
The story wouldn’t be juicy enough if they said Who I’m really suing because nobody knows that person so obviously they picked Wayne♂️— T-Pain (@TPAIN) November 1, 2017
Given every rap fan does know who Birdman is, who do you think T-Pain is really suing?
