Turk is seeking $1.3 million in damages for being swindled out of his royalties, according to TMZ. Similar to Weezy’s request, Turk is also looking for a handover of the rights to his music recorded on the label and TMZ reports “shady accounting” on the part of Birdman and Cash Money as the source of Turk’s discontent.
In 2013, Turk opened up to HipHopDX about his then-status with the label and feeling like he was taken advantage of early in his career.
“I felt like I got the short end of the stick on my deal when I was younger,” he said. “But now I know. People die from a lack of knowledge. When we don’t know, we got to suffer for that. So I felt like that was my trials and tribulations for me to go through that to make me into the person that I am today. Some people might call it ruthless and hard. But, it’s business.
“It’s just like my album, Blame It on the System, somewhere down the line you gotta draw the line and take responsibility,” he added. “A person gotta answer for they actions. Me, would I do somebody the way Baby did? No, I wouldn’t. If I came up with a person, and I know rightfully something is theirs, yeah, I’ma make sure that everything is everything.”
