A hit of Tupac’s from the 90’s is now the subject of a lawsuit over alleged unpaid royalties. Natasha Walker, who was in the R&B group Y?N-Vee, sang backups on Bury Me a G and even has a credit on the track. But in docs, obtained by TMZ, she says she and Pac made a deal in ’93 that the song would be a joint effort and she’d have equal ownership.
Natasha says she’s never been paid from the song’s release, which is why she is suing. One thing that may work against however, is that she’s suing in 2017, for a song in 1993. Statute of limitations for contract claims in California is just 4 years.
Walker’s attorney, Jennifer Harris, contends because the song continues to make money and will for the foreseeable future, her client has every right to to file suit now. She wants all royalties, back and current, plus damages and attorney’s fees.
