CHILDISH GAMBINO SUED BY RECORD LABEL OVER STREAMING ROYALTIES




 

Childish Gambino is facing a lawsuit from the indie label he put out his first three albums on, who claim the "This Is America" rapper screwed them out of money owed for streaming royalties.



According to a report by TMZ on Friday (July 6), Glassnote Entertainment Group, under which CampBecause the Internet and Awaken, My Love! were released, filed a suit that alleges Gamb made over $700,000 in streaming money, but he hasn't given them their percentage. Adding insult to injury, the report states Glassnote claims it has paid the Atlanta creator nearly $8 million and expects to fork up another $2 million in royalties by October.



The "Redbone" artist parted ways with Glassnote and inked a deal with RCA Records and the Wolf + Rothstein agency back in January. "Donald is undoubtedly one of the most talented, multi-faceted, young entertainers of this era," CEO of RCA Records Peter Edge stated at the time of the signing. "We are excited to join forces with him and Wolf + Rothstein to usher in the next phase of Childish Gambino's musical career."



The rapper's musical worth has had definitely shot up significantly since then. Following the release of "This Is America," his album streaming numbers went up 400 percent, which, of course, include albums released on Glassnote.



In related news, Gambino was recently accused of ripping off another song for his hit, "This Is America." His team vehemently denies the claims.
