CASH MONEY SUING TIDAL OVER WEEZY

$50 Million NYC Suit Hits

Today, Cash Money filed suit in New York Supreme Court against Jay Z'Tidal, claiming exclusive rights to any recordings made by Lil Wayne and that the release of the rapper's 2014 song “Glory” and the Free Weezy Mixtape on the service earlier this month, violated that agreement. 

Claiming tortious interference with contract, unfair competition, conversion and other counts, the suit is asking for monetary damages of no less than $20 million and $30 million in punitive damages. Cash Money also wants an injunction ordering the removal of Lil Wayne’s music from Tidal.

The lawsuit claims that Tidal poached Lil Wayne in “a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling streaming service.”
