Quavo, Takeoff, and Offset are reportedly suing their former business partner after a clothing line deal went sour. The Migos rappers claim they have not received their cut of the royalties they’re owed.
According to The Blast, “The band signed a deal in 2015 with YRN (aka Yung Rich Nation) to work on a line of clothing, jewelry, and other apparel. The guys from Migos were to be paid a percentage of royalties from the sales. They accuse YRN of failing to properly pay them their cut from the sales and for not providing them with accounting, making it unclear how much they are actually owed. Migos says they have demanded their former partner turn over the finances but they have refused.”
Additionally, Migos is accusing YRN of using “Migos marks” like “Culture” and “Bad and Boujee” as the company continues to produce new clothing. Migos is asking for an injunction that would stop YRN from profiting off their marks. They’re also suing for an unspecified amount in damages.
But, as the site reports, it was actually YRN that first took issue with Migos in court.
“Yung Rich Nation actually sued Migos over the same deal earlier this year. YRN claimed Quavo, Offset and Takeoff were supposed to wear the clothes in six music videos a year, participate in four photo shoots and make at least six appearances in stores. The company claimed instead of following through on their deal, Migos went and entered into a separate deal with Universal Music Group to sell band apparel and ceased to work on the planned line with them. YRN sued Migos seeking unspecified damages. Migos denied all allegations of wrongdoing and demanded the lawsuit be dismissed,” The Blast states.
Takeoff and Quavo have both released their solo albums and now fans are waiting on Offset’s. Good news is, it sounds like the project is going to be lit.
Offset’s baby mother, wife, and frequent collaborator CardiB hit Twitter this week to gush about her hubby’s upcoming, untitled album. She also told her followers that it made her cry a couple of times.
”I’m loving hubby album,” she wrote. ”It’s a very deep album..Intro made me cry twice.”
Offset announced the project during the wee hours of Tuesday, November 6 and fans can expect it just before the new year, on December 14.

After lavishing his wife, Cardi B, with birthday jewelry last month, Offset is treating himself to some bling bling.
TMZ reports that the Migos rapper spent six figures at The Icebox in Atlanta for custom diamond chains and blinged out Cartier glasses.
The two chains that he purchased cost about $40,000 each. Meanwhile, the frames was another $20,000. And if the math is done correctly, you’ll see that the receipt came up to at least $100,000.
It’s safe to say that Offset is one of Icebox’s most favorite clients. He spent over $1 million at their establishment over the past decade. Additionally, he commissioned one of the store’s most iconic pieces for wifey’s birthday.
Quavo kicked it off for the team, Takeoff came and showed why he is many across the Internet’s favorite of the trio and now Offset is ready to drop off his solo effort. The remaining member of Migos to drop a solo effort will do so on his birthday, December 14.
The release follows up with the details revealed by Quavo that each will take their turn in hitting fans with new tunes.
“That’s how we always had worked, the previous Migos records,” Quavo stated in regards to their releases. “We always go to work on the first and then one person would be on the song and then we just make each other do homework. So now it’s just like we completing our own songs.”
Quavo also revealed that after the trio wrapped up their individual releases they would unite for Culture III, marking the third year in a row the group has dropped an album under the “Culture” moniker.
Sources tell TMZ Cardi recently stepped into the studio with none other than Meek Mill to lay down some material that’ll be used in a forthcoming song. We’re told they cranked out hooks and verses — all of which is fair game for a final product that’s yet to be released. While we’re told the collab happened a few months ago, the timing is nothing short of less-than-perfect for Nicki … who’s in the middle of a good ol’ fashioned beef with Cardi. (TMZ)
