In 2007, Cash Money settled out of court with one of its first acts U.N.L.V., who signed way back in 1992.
The trio released six albums on Cash Money, but according to their lawsuit, they were never fully compensated. While both sides have now reached an agreement on how to settle the lawsuit, the exact terms of the settlement are confidential. U.N.L.V. is credited with starting the gangsta bounce style of New Orleans hip-hop that the Cash Money Millionaires popularized in the late ‘90s.
The pioneering group lost member Yella Boyee in 1999 to murder, but surviving members Tec-9, Lil Ya have remained outspoken about their issues with Baby and Cash Money.
