The Grammy-winning rapper, singer and actor has apparently agreed a deal to end his fight with his former label, Glassnote Records, over streaming royalties.

Last year, the label alleged the artist - also known as Donald Glover - was trying to claim 100% of streaming royalties from a streaming service called SoundExchange.

It said it was owed 50%, and that Glover and featured artists and producers were due the remaining half.

In his counterclaim, Glover said Glassnote had underpaid various royalties and charged inappropriate expenses.

Variety now reports that both sides have agreed to drop their suits but other terms were not disclosed.
