While entangled in his own legal battle with Birdman and Cash Money Records, Lil Wayne managed to lose a lawsuit filed against Young Money Records.
Banner filed his lawsuit against Young Money last year when he was allegedly left unpaid after producing three records on Tha Carter III and We Are Young Money. On Tha Carter III, Banner produced the Brisco and Busta Rhymes-assisted “La La” and “Pussy Monster.”
Given that Young Money failed to respond to the Mississippi MC’s case, he was awarded the default amount of $164,303.19.
Banner addressed the news on Twitter with a statement.

In addition to Banner, Lil Wayne is also attempting to retrieve money owed.
Yesterday (September 26), it was reported that a judge ordered Birdman and his legal team to find two years worth of missing financial documents. They were given 30 days to do so.
The judge’s request comes after Lil Wayne and his team failed to find documents that would help in uncovering where Birdman allegedly spent $70 million out of a $100 million advance from Universal.
