Yep, this is America: Donald Glover sued by former record label

Grammy-winning artist Donald Glover is being sued by his former record label for allegedly not paying it a fair share of his profits.

The Glassnote Entertainment Group is suing Glover, who goes under the moniker Childish Gambino, for leaving them out of more than $700,000 in streaming royalties, according to TMZ.  In the lawsuit, Glassnote says it paid Glover nearly $8 million in royalties and plans to pay him another $2 million in the next three months.

The label also claims that the “This is America” rapper made a $1.5 million demand to resolve any streaming royalty disputes, TMZ reports.
