The suit, filed by the singer's Nappy Boy Entertainment company, claims that T-Pain is owed more than $500,000 for his work on the platinum record. The lawsuit points out that T-Pain produced and was featured on "Got Money," a single from the album, TMZ points out.


Lil Wayne has been embroiled in his own lawsuit against Cash Money since 2015. In addition to seeking $51 million in money owed from the label, Wayne was also suing for the rights to be a joint copyright holder for all of Young Money's recordings. Young Money is an imprint of the Cash Money label, which is distributed by Republic Records.
