Childish Gambino Sued By Record Label

Published: Sunday 8th Jul 2018 by Sam

With more success often comes more problems. Just ask Childish Gambino.

For, fresh from being accused of plagiarising #1 hit ‘This Is America,’ the musician/actor has been sued — by his former record label.

Details below…

According to TMZ, it’s Gambino’s former label Glassnote Entertainment who are seeking funds from the star – who recently signed a lucrative new deal with Sony’s RCA Records.

Per the report, the drama all centers on streaming royalties they are allegedly owed.

Glassnote has filed a suit against Gambino (who also goes by real name Donald Glover for his acting endeavours), accusing him of deliberately not paying them their share of the $700,000 + he’s amassed from streaming.

Though no longer in partnership for new music, Glassnote insists they’re holding up their end of the previous deal and have already paid the star $8 million with a further $2 million in royalties coming his way within the next 3 months. To complicate matters more, the label allege that Gambino himself made $1.5 million demand from them to resolve streaming royalty disputes.

And now they’re all locked in a legal wrangle.

Much of the money disputed is believed to be generated by  breakthrough album ‘Awaken, My Love!’ – which spurned the Grammy winning hit ‘Red Bone.’

      does the fact the he married a white woman make him any less of an African American?

        Yes because his music is fake. He is gay and likes white men, married a white beard, and he is fake.

    If his wife supports what he does for African American culture, what’s the problem? He’s doing more for the black community than people who sit at home complaining about his wife’s white heritage, the same people whose kids are probably brainwashed consumers of popular distractions like in his “This is America” video. If you weren’t so quick to hate him, you might actually learn something.


    I watched his stand up today, he’s surprisingly funny… Not Bernie Mack funny but far better than white comics ?

    Hopefully the original artist who performed American Pharaoh Jase Hardly gets his funds as well!!
