T-Pain Sues Konvict Label For Unpaid Royalties
Just yesterday (June 26) Dame Dash accused Lee Daniels of owing him a little over 2 Million dollars and today, we have T-Pain accusing his own record label, Konvict.
The Grammy-nominated singer-producer is suing Konvict for failure to pay him an advance on his fifth album, Oblivion.
In the civil complaint filed in the Superior Court of Fulton County this week, T-Pain said he originally signed with the label in 2005 and was obligated for up to six albums. He released the first four without incident but had problems receiving payment for his fifth one.
In the lawsuit, Pain is also seeking unspecified “semi-annual royalty accountings and payments” based on the recording agreement.
Last November, his law firm Greenberg Traurig sent a letter to Konvict’s attorney on record Taylor English saying the “I’m Sprung” singer is owned a minimum of $200,000 as an advance and another $200,000 with the delivery of the album. Taylor English sent a letter back in December saying it no longer represented Konvict.
