The Prince family wants their dough. Jas Prince, son of Rap-A-Lot founder J. Prince, has filed a lawsuit against Birdman demanding the money he is owed from Drake profits.
In the new legal docs, obtained by TMZ, Jas calls out Birdman and his brother Ronald “Slim” Williams — co-founders of Cash Money — for failing to pay up on the Drake deal.
Quick backstory: Jas discovered Drizzy, hooked him up with Aspire Music Group to manage him, and Cash Money to be his label. As a result, Drake’s Young Money contract calls for Jas and Aspire to get paid.
And that’s the problem … according to the suit, Birdman’s blowing off his contractual duty to pay Aspire Music one-third of his Drake profits. He also signed Drake to an exclusive deal in January 2013, but according to docs … that new contract breached Drake’s original one, and cheated Aspire out of $4 million.
Aspire filed the new lawsuit, but sources connected to the case tell us Jas is calling the shots … as he now owns a chunk of Aspire. He’d previously sued Cash Money, but we’re told Jas is going harder than ever now to get the money straight from Birdman.
Reportedly, one of Jas Prince’s attorney is Marc Kasowitz, who is also a Donald Trump lawyer.
We wouldn’t call that “for the culture,” but clearly Jas wants that bag.
As previously reported, Jas’ pops, J. Prince, said he would be making Birdman an offer he can’t refuse to get the Drake and Lil Wayne money Birdman has allegedly been holding hostage.
Rick Ross surely approves.
