Lil Wayne's record label is getting called out for stiffing rapper David Banner, and now has to hand him more than $160k.
Banner won a default judgment in his lawsuit against Young Money Records -- he said the label owed him upwards of $150k for work he did on "Tha Carter III" and "We Are Young Money" ... specifically for three songs he produced.
According to the docs, obtained by TMZ, Young Money failed to respond in the case ... so the judge entered the default of $164,303.19, which includes interest.
Meek Mill and The Game's beef claimed a new victim -- hip-hop legend Beanie Sigel, who got knocked the hell out ... apparently by a guy in Meek's crew.
TMZ got this video of Beanie laid out backstage ... shortly before he was getting onstage Saturday night for Diddy's Bad Boy Family concert in Philly. You can also see a guy getting dragged out of the area ... his name is Teefy Bey, and he's a member of Meek's Dreamchasers.
Teefy's copped to throwing the KO punch, and claims Beanie had to go down because he broke the "code of ethics on the street." He doesn't get more specific.
***WARNING: EXPLICIT LANGUAGE***
It's weird because Beanie rapped WITH Meek last week on his Game diss track, "Ooouuu." Of course, he's since claimed to have written the whole thing, including Meek's verses.
In any event, Beanie still managed to perform in Philly after the knockout, and took a thinly veiled shot at Meek and co.
Lil Wayne just caught a major break in his legal war with Birdman ... a judge is forcing Baby to open his books to account for millions Weezy says he never saw.
Wayne had previously asked to see Birdman's financial records to find out how he burned through $70 mil they were supposed to split from a $100 million advance from Universal.
As we reported ... Birdman's lawyers say they've already forked over more than 20,000 pages of docs to Wayne's legal team. But Wayne's attorneys claim those are useless, and they want a full-on money trail.
Here's the problem for Birdman -- his peeps over at Cash Money weren't keeping very good track of those records ... for 2 whole years. Birdman's lawyer shrugged it off this way ... "It is what it is."
That excuse didn't fly with the judge ... who gave Birdman 30 days to find those records, or get the right person who knows where they are and get 'em to Wayne.
Sounds like he should've listened to Wayne, and held onto his receipts.
Brandon denies any involvement, and says the neighbor has the wrong guy. The neighbor clearly believes it's him though ... because in the docs she references Brandon's brother and Jagged Edge member, Brian Casey.
She also says "Jagged Edge" repeatedly in a YouTube video she posted of the alleged incident.One of the guys from Jagged Edge doesn't want the party outside his house, if the party involves a kid on a skateboard ... according to the kid's mom, who says the singer and his crew beat her down.
The woman is Brandon Casey's next door neighbor, and in court docs she says a fight erupted in her driveway when someone in Casey's house got pissed about her son skateboarding. The person apparently thought the kid was on Casey's property.
The neighbor says a heated argument got amped up when 6 people ran out of Casey's house and "began to pummel" her. She says her husband had to break up the brawl.
She went to court to request, and was granted, a restraining order. Casey must now stay 25 feet away from the neighbor and her family.
The woman says she's been staying at a hotel for fear of another attack.
Sources close to French tell us the rapper dropped about $100k on the 7 rings he gifted her earlier this week. The rings were crafted by celeb jeweler Iceman Nick, who's also done some expensive bedazzling for a bunch of other rappers.
The purchase did the trick. Iggy gave French a shout-out on Instagram, after weeks of denying they've hooked up.
Kanye West doesn't just rant on Twitter, he also makes deals ... as a guy in Toronto found out after 'Ye shocked him by making a purchase.
Maison Raksha,the jeweler behind Toronto Grillz, started making 14k gold “I Feel Like Pablo” necklaces right after Kanye dropped his album.
Raksha tells us he shot for the moon by tweeting Kanye to say he made a chain for Kim, and it could be hers for $500. He says he was surprised when Kanye's stylist responded, and said 'Ye would love it, but wanted the necklace to simply read "Pablo."
Raksha delivered a month ago, and Kanye wore the chain for his Harper's Bazaar cover shoot, and he's worn it on tour too.
