LMFAO's Sky Blu Redfoo Screwed Me On Royalties Kept Shufflin' Without Me

9/12/2016 7:18 AM PDT BY TMZ STAFF

0912-sky-blu-redfoo-lmfao-tmz-03One half of LMFAO is sounding off at the other claiming despite family ties he's been left in the dust.

Sky Blu posted a scathing letter on Facebook about Redfoo, who's also his uncle, calling him out for ditching him after he suffered a debilitating back injury.

Sky, who now goes by 8ky, is trying to drop his new solo LP but says Redfoo's lawyers fired off a letter saying he gets zero LMFAO royalties ... money he needs to underwrite his album. He says he's also been unsuccessful getting his share of money held up by Rick Ross' lawsuit against the group.

8ky claims Redfoo pushed him out of LMFAO and "just kept shuffling everyday without me," going as far as using their trademark party rock theme on his own solo LP.

8ky also sounded off on their label, Interscope, saying it needs to "stop treating artist like cows and chickens and using them for all they can produce and then just discard them without a care." 

It's kinda history repeating itself. They're both blood related to Berry Gordy, founder of Motown ... a label that had its fair share of royalty fights.

Pregnant Man LMFAO for Halloween ... I'M SEXY AND I KNOW IT

EXCLUSIVE
1005_pregnant_man_lmfao_costume_launch_v3Pregnant Man Thomas Beatie has passion in his pants and he ain't afraid to show it ... dressing up as Redfoo from LMFAO for Halloween this year -- and his costume's incredible.

Thomas tells TMZ, "I've pretty much been obsessed over the last month trying to get my Redfoo costume together" --  a massive waste of time because the costume's literally just a t-shirt, animal print stretch pants, and his GF's old Richard Simmons wig.

Thomas adds, "I've been Googling the moves, so I plan on being in true character come Halloween."

FYI -- if you're wondering what the black bars are covering ... let's just say Bush wasn't just the 41st President of the United States.

Thomas says he tried reaching out to Redfoo on Twitter to see if the LMFAO rapper would want to do a costume trade -- suggesting Redfoo could dress as "The Pregnant Man" by stuffing a pillow under his shirt. 

Redfoo didn't respond.

LMFAO concert fire in HondurasLMFAO was forced to stop their concert early in Honduras last night -- when a fire burned through the concert venue ... but cops believe the blaze was no accident.
