Cash Money Sued Over Ethan Couch/Affluenza Artwork?

Updated on October 30, 2015

Young Money President Mack Maine and Birdman of Cash Money are facing a lawsuit regarding an attempt to shed light on what Mack Maine feels was a racist verdict in the case of Ethan Couch.

You've probably heard of Ethan Couch, the drunken Texas teen who mowed four people to death after losing control of his pickup truck while driving over 70 mph in a 40 mph zone. These events occurred after the then 16 year old Ethan Couch and friends had stolen and obviously consumed beer from a local Walmart. As for those friends, the murderous crash left one unable to move or talk because of brain injures and the other suffered internal injuries and broken bones.

This tragedy occurred in Burleson, Texas during the summer of 2013. During the Ethan Couch trial, his defense team argued that Couch was a victim of affluenza. One psychologist in the trial testified that Ethan Couch was the product of wealthy, privileged parents who never set limits for the boy.

Prosecutors of the case asked for the maximum 20 years of prison time for Ethan Couch, however Judge Jean Boyd ruled that 10 years of probation and therapy for driving drunk and killing four people would suffice.

Couch's family didn't teach him right from wrong and neither did the courts so Young Money prez and rapper Mack Maine took the case to the lab like a real artist is supposed to. Mack Maine hit the studio and later released a single title "Ethan Couch". I must commend Mack Maine for shedding some artistic light on the Ethan Couch case.

Mack Maine ends the song saying "Just had to address some shit I saw in the news where this lil 16 year old killed four people, he was drunk, loaded, high off Valium's. They say he too wealthy to go to jail but then you got Wayne go to jail cus he attempted to possess a gun, whatever the hell that mean. T.I go to jail trying to protect his self. Ja Rule, Fast Joe go for taxes. Lauryn Hill. But none of these dudes ain't killed nobody but this white kid, he too wealthy to go to jail. You put the pieces of the puzzle together. Food for thought."

Now you may be saying so what's the deal with the lawsuit then? Whelp, that's the result of Mack Maine, Birdman and team releasing the single cover with the wrong lil white boy. Mark and Becky English filed a lawsuit claiming Mack Maine put their 17 year old son on his 2014 single cover, "Ethan Couch" according to TMZ. Birdman and his pockets have been under attack this past year and we know sharing isn't his thing.

In the words of Mack Maine "They say powder makes you hyper. Reefer makes you calm. They say cigarettes gives you cancer, but what about alcohol?
