What if all you had to do to gain $150,000 was to simply tweet? Well Prodigy, founder and one-half of Mobb Deep, has one heck of an opportunity, but it’s one that comes with a few circumstances.

The 41-year-old rapper has finally settled his lawsuit against Universal Music Publishing Group for collecting fees on his solo features, and on other artist’s albums for nearly 20 years without any permission to do so.

The two parties have been able to come to an agreement, and the company will pay the rapper a whopping $153,751.21.

In order for Prodigy to obtain his earnings from the case with UMPG, the company wants him to make it very clear that the dispute is indeed over. Prodigy was told he must take to Twitter and tweet this message.

My dispute with UMPG was all a misunderstanding. Thankful that we resolved it quickly and happy to be continuing my long-standing relationship with UMPG.”

Prodigy hasn’t taken to Twitter to make the declaration yet,  but you can definitely bet that fans and the court will be on the lookout.
