U-God sues Wu-Tang for $170k

TMZ and AllHipHop are reporting that U-God (real name Lamont Hawkins) is suing Wu Music Group–which is licensed to Universal Music–for $170,000 in back royalties.

The rapper filed the papers on January 8 at the United States District Court for the Southern District of New York, claiming that he is owed money from the 8 Diagrams album advance (around $40k), last fall’s Rock the Bells tour (at least $50k) and a European record contract, among other things.
