This is not surprising at all... Cash money/young money always cheated many producers from their cut, theres an interview with producer, Bangladesh (produced "a Milli") where he says that lil wayne and birdman never gave money to most of their producers. And i thought Jim Jonsin produced "lollipop"?

Any time I want to see a civil disagreement between educated members of the public I always turn to the comments section on TMZ articles but all I ever see are a bunch of morons who suck their grandpa's ****s.

I highly believe this story. I'm an artist out of South Florida who recently got picked up by a manager representing Young Money. I paid $300 as a partial deposit for artist/agent representation. Not only have I not yet received any sort of representation, this manager wont respond to e-mails, tweets or basically any contact at all. TMZ, contact me & I will give names & sources close to this incident as well as contact #'s or any contact info I have. I would like to get this manager fired & Young Money contacted for compensation and a renued contract possibly.

Thank You,

So What    

Why do you fools pay for trash like Rap which is NOT MUSIC. This **** has no talent at all just a bunch of dumb fu--ing meaning less words and you fools go for it. Chech out real people who are musicans and singers with real word and music. They use their real talent to make a living. it must be those that have no education at all with no brains. hope I pissed you off

Good luck with trying to collect it!!! Obtaining a favorable judgment may be much easier than actually collecting the money owed. They'll probably bounce this poor guy in and out of court until a settlement is reached for only a "fraction" of what's actually owed. This sort of thing happens on a regular basis. People aren't always rightfully compensated for their creative efforts.
