One half of Mobb Deep and Universal Music have squashed their legal beef, but if Prodigy wants to get paid ... he's gonna have to jump on Twitter.
According to docs, the rapper and Universal's publishing arm reached a settlement -- he had sued for back royalties, accusing the label of skimming revenue from his solo work.
Under the settlement, Universal Music Publishing Group will fork over $153,751.21 to Prodigy's lawyers ... with one string attached. Prodigy must publicly declare the feud is over, with this specific tweet: "My dispute with UMPG was all a misunderstanding. Thankful that we resolved it quickly and happy to be continuing my long-standing relationship with UMPG."
That's over 140 characters, so it'll be a two-parter -- but when you see it, know that Prodigy got paid.
