Jas Prince has filed a legal request to Cash Money to open their books with regard to earnings from Drake’s career.
Two years after filing suit against Drake’s management team for a breach of settlement agreement and owed money for introducing the rapper to the label, Jas Prince is now reportedly taking aim at Cash Money and Birdman directly in a new legal battle.
More than a month into the label’s current implosion, Prince, whose father J. Prince made his own headlines with public threats for Cash Money, Suge Knight, and Diddy over their place in the Toronto rapper’s career last week, has filed legal documents requesting the label make public its earnings from Drake’s career up to this point, according to TMZ. While he claims that the label has made as much as $40 million off the deal, Jas Prince says he’s only received $2 million for his role in Drake’s Cash Money signing and subsequent commercial success.
Prince’s latest legal tactic comes less than a month after news broke of Lil Wayne’s $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money in January. Shortly after, former Hot Boys rapper Turk announced his own $1.3 million suit against the label.
