‘T Mix’ Says Records Label Owes Him $2.25 Million

NEW ORLEANS (CN) - Tristan Jones aka "T Mix" says Cash Money Records owes him more than $2.25 million for his work producing songs for several Grammy-winning and multi-platinum album-selling artists, including rappers Lil Wayne and Birdman.

In a federal lawsuit, Jones claims he signed an exclusive production contract with Cash Money Records in November 2005. Between 2005 and 2007, Cash Money allegedly released more than 40 master recordings produced by Jones on hit albums such as "5 * Stunna," "Like Father Like Son," "Fast Money," and "Tha Carter II."

In exchange for Jones' exclusive production services, Jones says Cash Money promised to pay production royalties on the suggested retail list price.

Cash Money has sold well over 3 million album copies in the United States and Canada alone, Jones claims, and has received at least $30 million from his recordings.

Jones says Cash Money owes him at least $2.25 million, but has paid him only about $187,000.

Jones seeks damages for breach of contract in Federal Court. He is represented by Robert Johnston of Fowler, Rodriguez.
