IN CASE YOU MISSED IT--ROYALTY FREE: Tyga Claims Cash Money Records Is Holding His Cash HOSTAGE!

 photo Tyga2012MTVVideoMusicAwardsArrivalsM2aCYrRZ7uJx.jpg

Rapper Tyga may have fine jewely, fancy cars and iced-out teeth, but it's not due to Young Money/Cash Money Records...cause he claims they're holding back his royalty checks!   Hear Tyga explain how he's "independent" yet signed to a major label inside...

 

During an interview with Power 105's Breakfast Club, Tyga confirmed what Juvenile, B.G., Manny Fresh and other have claimed for years.....royalty checks from Young Money/Cash Money records don't make it into the hands of the artists!  Y'all know his baby moms Blac Chyna's ears perked up when she heard there's possibly more money to be had.

As Birdman and Co. have long been accused of "witholding" money from their artists, Tyga all but confirmed it on the air.  But there's no hard feelings as Tyga explained that he thinks of himself as an independent artist.  He can still afford the bling and luxuries of the hip hop world through the tours and endorsements he secures on his own.  He said,

"I never got a check from Young Money/Cash Money. But by me saying that, I’ve always treated my career like independent and everything that I got is because of myself, my own endorsements, me touring, myself. I think I got a signing bonus when I first signed but that was it.”

Damn!  He added,

“I felt if I wanted to be independent...I could do that because it would be no difference. I would still tour, put out albums and still sell out shows.”

And he's not holding any grudges because he's got his money right,

"At a certain time, you get your money but at the same time, they pay for your videos and all that other stuff. But I never really was dependent on the label like that."

Tyga's third solo album, Hotel California, is in stores now (but he won't be getting many checks from it).

Watch Tyga break down his hustle here:

Tyga is stupid. The only person that Baby pays is himself, his ugly ass bubble eyed giant brother and Wayne. Soon Wayne will go on record claiming he hasn't received all monies. Baby has always done this.

His justification is

His justification is ignorant, to say the least. "Oh, it's okay that they don't pay me for the work I did because I just leave my newborn baby at home and tour to make money." What the...?

Everybody knows Baby and Slim

Everybody knows Baby and Slim don't cut checks. They keep your money and buy you things to pacify you. If you didn't learn from all the previous artists that knew them since they were kids and got stiffed, I don't feel any sympathy for you. You should've done your homework before you signed on the dotted line.....if you signed a contract at all cuz they don't do that either.

I have zero sympathy for him

I have zero sympathy for him and anyone in that situation these days. Pick up a book you illiterate and learn from the past! The artists back in the days of Motown went through the same stuff so there's no reason ppl should still fall for not reading and understanding their contracts today. You wanted to be flashy with the cars and jewelry, little did you realize that you were blinded by your own bling. Fool!

No news here, everybody knows

No news here, everybody knows that Cash Money is really named KEEP MONEY. It has been said for years and they have been rapping Lil Wayne the worst he just is to high to see it, maybe when he gets sober and real, he will see that all his money comes from Baby pockets and not his own. #dumbfools sign their lives away to be famous, thats essentially what a Cash Money deal is.

I wonder why he didnt have an attorney look over his contracts? That may explain why bow wow is "broke". Cmb with holding money is nothing new. Wayne wanted to leave at one point thats why they created ym for him.

Thank you! Anyone that signs with Cash Money or Bad Boy is just asking to work for free or at least not make any real money for the work they put in.
