Although his case isn’t as publicized as Lil Wayne’s and closely followed as Drake’s situation, Turk has his own active lawsuit against Cash Money.
The former Hot Boy, born Tab Virgil, Jr., is accusing Birdman and the label of swindling him out of royalties that likely date back to the beginning of his nine-year prison sentence in 2004. He’s asking for $1.3 million in damages and according to a new report from AllHipHop.com, he’s apply the pressure like a bandage to a bleeding wound.
Virgil has filed a legal summons that require Cash Money and Money Mack Music to respond within 21 days. Should the allotted time expire before his attorney is contacted, acknowledging the complaint, he shall emerge with the easiest legal battle in Hip-Hop history.
“If they don’t answer by March 11, it will be declared a default judgement,” he tells AHH.
Given Birdman’s reluctance to comment on anything (even when it directly involves him), a win may be in the immediate future.
