U-God Sues Wu Music for $170K

U-God, one of the founding members of the Wu-Tang Clan, has filed a lawsuit against the Wu Music Group seeking $170,000 in unpaid royalties, performance fees and recording advances. The suit, filed recently in U.S. District Court in New York, alleges several instances of breach of contract by Wu management. The filing outlines several agreements that the MC entered into, including the group’s recording contracts with BMG and Bodog Entertainment, and contracts for the Rock The Bells and European Wu-Tang tours. U-God claims that he has not received payment in connection with any of these contracts and seeks a minimum of $170,000 in damages. This new legal battle comes after several Wu members, most notably Ghostface and Raekwon, have publicly complained about financial and creative disagreements within the crew. While the RZA has denied any widespread problems and insists that the issues have been settled behind the scenes, U-God’s suit seems to contradict his side of the story.

  • http://xXLMAG jb-da b.stuy reppa

    I feel you…the album could have been so much better. Especially since lyrically it was still good. Rza hogged the production and fucked
    up everything. Disputes over money? I always thought Wu rolled tight.
    I guess not.

  • UARK

    Obviously yall know nothing about Wu…RZA has always done all the production, it’s either him or his protege Mathematics and he had some beats on 8 Diagrams, which was solid album.

    But I agree something is up with the groups internal problems.

    • http://xXLMAG jb-da b.stuy reppa

      First off I know just as much about Wu as the next man. And since your such a Wu expert you forgot Tru Master and 4th Diciple.

  • G

    I thought New WuTanG was Dope…I could understand Hip Hop hippie style,.,,Surprised record didnt sell well..

  • http://www.hip-hopkings.com Stu

    Another Wu album? I highly doubt it..

    Wu Tang are dope. One of the best Hip-Ho groups ever.

  • trizzy

    I have been a wu fan since day 1,and i cant understand what happened to this hip hop super group. jealousy? greed? hate? money? ghostface is the dopest out the group but it was foul for him and rae to call rza a hippe. I see now it will never be another wu album. thats another nail in the hip hop coffin. raekwon need to also shut the fuck up because besides cuban link al your solo joints have been garbage. you need to push back from the table because you really look like one of the planet of the apes.

  • aquaman

    The RZA is the best producer ever! End of conversation. Take his best 10 beats and put them against any other producer. He murders all of them. There would be NO WU without him. Everyone needs to stop hating and give the man some respect.

  • http://THENUMBERTOO.WORDPRESS.COM THENUMBERTOO

    I WOULD HOPE THAT NONE OF THIS IS TRUE.

    WITH ALL THESE GROUPS BEEFIN AND DISLOYALTY INSIDE THOSE CIRCLES, I WOULD NEVER THINK THAT THERE WAS SOMETHING LIKE THIS THAT WOULD HAPPEN.

    RZA JUST GOT OFF OF DOIN A GREAT MOVIE WITH DENZEL AND I HOPE TO HEAVEN THAT THIS SHIT AIN’T TRUE.

    U-GOD TO ME, IN ESSENCE IS NOT THAT GREAT A LYRCIST, BUT WHEN YOU ARE FOUNDING MEMBER AND YOU HAVE A CONTRACT, GET THAT MONEY.

    CAPPADONNA SAID THAT HE GIVES PEOPLE RIDES ACROSS NEW YORK CITY FOR $5 A POP, SOMETHING THAT I SAW ON CURRENT TV AS WELL AS ANOTHER TV STATION.

    AGAIN THIS IS ANOTHER PIECE OF EVIDENCE WHY THERE SHOULD BE NO ARTIST RUN LABELS.
