The music industry can be real messy #Roommates but one thing is for sure, people don’t play when it comes to their coins. James “Jas” Prince and Aspire Music Group are suing Birdman and Cash Money Records over money they claim they’re owed from Drake’s first six solo albums!
According to Fader, Aspire is the label that claims they signed Drake back in 2008, meanwhile, Prince also alleges that he discovered Drake.
They both claim that they are owed missing profits and copyright royalties from those albums.
In June 2009, Aspire claimed that they reached a deal with Birdman that would allow Drake to record under the label, under the condition that they would be given one-third of the next profits “from his first six albums plus one-third of the copyrights of his master recordings for those same albums.”
Aspire has asked the judge to get access to Cash Money’s financial records in order to see how much money they’re owed. According to Billboard, it could end up totaling in the “tens of millions.”
