Lil Wayne and his company Young Money Touring Inc. have filed a lawsuit against Ujaama Talent Agency Inc. and the company's owners, Erskine Isaac and David Nelson on August 16th in the Supreme Court of the State of New York.
According to the lawsuit, between 2008 and January of 2010, Lil Wayne participated in four different tours with Ujaama.
In exchange, Young Money claims it paid Ujaama a 5 percent commission, along with 5 percent of merchandising revenues from the 30 concerts.
A disagreement occurred between the two companies over the proceeds of the two "America's Most Wanted Music Festival" tours in summer and winter of 2009.
The lawsuit claims that Isaac and Nelson "elected to divert to Ujaama's own bank account an amount not less than $375,000, the sum that Isaac and Nelson maintain is owed to Ujaama for the tours in question.
Lil Wayne's lawyer Ronald Sweeney had various conversations with the pair and asked for the money back, but Isaac and Nelson refused to return the money.
Ujaama allegedly claimed it was entitled to the extra money for work it had done on the 2009 tours.

Last month, 50 Cent and Soulja Boy excited some fans and confused others during a West Coast stop on Young Money Presents: The America's Most Wanted Music Festival. Fif stepped onstage in California and performed with his much younger club-floor-catering peer. Those in attendance seemed to love it, but on the Net there was speculation about how and why the collaboration came together.
Reader 4EvaShady commented, "Curtis Jackson, what the **** are you doing? Get the **** off that stage and ******* bust a rap with Dre and Eminem!"
Meanwhile LAsalvi09 was way more receptive to the team-up. "Hot performance. Good stuff," they wrote.
"All the haters need to fall back," Blacko wrote. "Y'all just being negative towards two artists that did a show together? WTF is wrong with that? People who were there enjoyed it. Leave it at that. Point blank."
A reader under the handle of FriscoKid commented, "Stop being stupid, guys. Soulja wouldn't have brought 50 to the show if  was played out. Doesn't make sense. Soulja Boy wanted to give the tour a different look. I didn't hear anything about LeBron James being over for showing up for Young Jeezy? No chatter about Chris Brown showing up for Lil Wayne either. It's just a chance for both of them to upstage the headliners ... This may have been the best part of that night."
Well, 50 Cent told us last week exactly why he wanted to come onstage with Soulja Boy. The answer is ... well, the General doesn't have to answer to anyone. The truth is, 50 and Soulja are cool. Fif even admires the youngster for writing and producing a hit as huge as "Crank That" and said that Soulja's popularity even resonates in Eminem's crib.
"I was at Em's house," 50 said recently. "He has a...More 50 CENT
