Wu-Tang Clan member U-God is ready to “Bring Da Ruckus” to his group, in court and it’s over revenue he feels he’s owed over years. According to TMZ, documents U-God filed state that he has contributed to about 170 tracks for the group since their first release in 1993, but hasn’t gotten his share of royalties off 12 Wu albums, for at least the last 6 years.
U-God also says his Wu contract states he is to receive two annual payments for his share of merchandising dough, but hasn’t been getting that either. Seems like he has particular beef with RZA and his brother, Mitchell Diggs, saying they’ve abused their power as Wu founders, leaving him out in the cold.
U-God also claims he has yet to get any money from that top secret Wu double album, “Once Upon a Time in Shaolin,” which Martin Shkreli bought for $2 million. He wants a complete accounting of Wu-Tang’s various revenue streams, and says he’s owed at least $2.5 million for numerous breaches of contract.
Looks like Raekwon wasn’t just bitter.
