Prodigy Files Suit Against Label For Failure To Pay Over $30K

Jailed Mobb Deep rapper Prodigy has sued Vox Music Group – an independent label that delivered his last album, H.N.I.C. 2 in over 14,000 languages –for a breach of contract, according to the New York Post.

In the suit, filed last Monday (March 23), P claims the label failed to pay him upwards of $30,000, forcing his family to foreclose on his house. He alleges that VMG was supposed to give him $10,300 monthly payments but missed three months. The Queens-based MC also says that the label did not give him his royalty statement and is asking to end his agreement with the company.

Billboard reports that Prodigy teamed up with the label last year to use VMG’s voice translation technology Voxonic.

P is currently serving a three-and-a-half year sentence behind bars for gun possession. – Elan Mancini

    This clown is just trying to keep his name alive. From posting his dumb ass letters to this,he’s talking more while in jail then when he was free. I hope he gets his money if this is true but is that the only paper he had coming ? no other dough put to the side so his crib wouldn’t be up for forclosure ? sounds like another rappper spending like crazy thinking the checks will always keep coming. He better continue to write new material and hit the weights hard because crooked I is gonna knock him the fuck out lol !

    I’m as big a Prodigy fan as the next dude *looks around*, but I doubt that foreign cats worldwide are checking for his music. I know dudes who speak perfectly english that ain’t buying his shit.

    14,000 different languages?? No Dice. They probably did stiff him (no jail homo), but something just ain’t right.

    Damn, I didn’t know he got so much time. It’s sad when a rappers locked up & you don’t even notice…….

    50 don’t need to do shit for his ass.all the grown ass men in the world have to stand up like one,not lay down like some bitch ass boys.prodigy is around my age (mid 30′s),so he’s middle age,he ain’t 50′s child.and 14,000 languages? You know that’s some bullshit,if a fool can’t sell 4000 records in one language,how the fuck u gonna sell in 14000 different languages? 50 ain’t studin’ his ass and i don’t blame him,and fuck that bitch ass partner of prodigy,a name that ain’t worth lookin up.

    2hard2fair, what are you talking bout? Not once does it mention 50 Cent. Prodigy is suing Vox Music Group, not G-Unit. Next time read the article.

    • 2hard2fair

      I read the article,all i’m sayin his bitch ass might be lookin for a hand out,people just don’t give away money to anyone and with prodigy,that’s anyone,he ain’t nobody.blood money is so muthafuckin old,plus the song ain’t just mobb deep,nore and nas ripped that one up.to be one of the slawest (sorry ass) rappers in the game to have the audacity to release somethin in 14,000 different languages proves 2 things:That the dude got some mental issues and that independent label ain’t worth fuckin with.

  • Nate

    Yes, they (14,000) languages looking like a HUGE typo, is 14,000 the # of copies he really sold? Sounds about right.

    That’s messed up when you have sold millions of albums over 2 decades and can’t afford a little mortgage… he should have had whatever money by now that he committed to his fam.

    Legal or ill… I mean he always acted like he was getting so much money.. whta happened???
