U-God Sues Wu-Tang Clan For Millions
Original Wu-Tang Clan member U-God has sued the group for $2.5 million, TMZ reports. According to court documents obtained by TMZ, U-God alleges that he has not seen royalties from Wu-Tang’s music for the past six years. In addition, he claims he has not received his biannual payments for his share of Wu-Tang merchandising profits, nor as he gotten any money from Martin Shkreli’s infamous $2 million purchase of the one-of-a-kind Once Upon a Time in Shaolin.
Along with “at least” $2.5 million for “numerous breaches of contract,” U-God is requesting “a complete accounting of Wu-Tang’s various revenue streams,” according to TMZ.
U-God has appeared on all of Wu-Tang’s studio albums. Most recently, he is credited as a writer on five songs from 2014’s A Better Tomorrow. His latest solo album, The Keynote Speaker, came out in 2013.
