The choir and the orchestra of the Bach Collegium Japan perform the St John's Passion with a small ensemble – as was customary in the composer’s life time – under Masaaki Suzuki, former student of one of the nestors of authentic interpretation, Ton Koopman. One of the greatest musical treatments of the suffering and death of Jesus Christ receives a performance that is musically precise and stylistically close to what we now know of Bach's ideal. The Bach Collegium Japan has been regarded for some years now as a real discovery among baroque ensembles specializing in the performance of sacred music from the Baroque.

EXCLUSIVE: Turk Subpoenas Universal Music Group In Lawsuit Against Cash Money

Turk is now seeking information from Cash Money’s parent company Universal Music Group to help determine how much he should be rewarded from the suit.

According to a source with firsthand knowledge of the case, Turk’s legal team has issued subpoenas to UMG and Universal Music Publishing Group in order to get access to accounting on the artists’ master recordings and publishing connected to Cash Money.

In the original court documents, Turk requested at least $ 1.3 million, but the judge could award him a higher amount. It is suspected Cash Money owes Turk payments regarding over 100 recordings with the imprint. The parties are scheduled to return to court in July.

Between 1997 and 2001, Turk released several singles as a member of Cash Money’s Hot Boys including “We On Fire” and “I Need A Hot Girl.” It is estimated the group has sold over 2 million albums to date.

As a solo artist, Turk released his debut studio album Young & Thuggin’ via Cash Money. He also appeared on records by other CMR acts Juvenile, Lil Wayne, and Big Tymers.

AllHipHop.com contacted representatives of Universal Music Group and Universal Music Publishing Group. As of press time, UMG declined to comment and UMPG has not responded to the matter. Turk and his attorney Patrick Costello declined to comment on this story.
