Jas Prince Says Cash Money Owes Him $11 Mil In Drake Deal
Cotdamn that’s a whole lotta money! We’ve all heard the story about how Jas Prince discovered Drizzy and brought him to Cash Money, well apparently Jas is still waiting to be paid for his find…
Via In Flex We Trust reports:
Jas Prince has been at odds with Cash Money for some time now, after he reportedly never received the royalties he’s due for bringing Drake to them.
The Rap-A-Lot Records heir says in the lawsuit that Cash Money was to pay him 22% of all of Drake’s royalties, net profits and other advances – which now totals up to $11 million. The tricky part is – Drake was signed to Jas’ Aspire Music Group, and Jas says Wayne and Drake’s manager, Cortez Bryant, breached the original agreement by shuffling Drizzy over to Young Money from Cash Money. Unfortunately, due to Jas’ role with Aspire he can’t legally sue Cash Money, so now he’s asking the court to appoint a receiver to do so on his behalf.
For their part, Cash Money denies they owe Jas 22% of anything.
