Lil Wayne’s Legal Lawsuit With Birdman Finally Settled

Lil Wayne’s legal battle with Birdman is over.

The young money rapper has reportedly reached a settlement with Birdman which will also release him from his record deal with Cash Money Records. Wayne has been battling this lawsuit since 2014 after Birdman and the label refused to release his album “tha Carter V”.

In 2015, Weezy sued Cash Money for $51 million to terminate his record deal. He accused Birdman’s label of owing him an $8 million advance for Tha Carter V, plus $2 million once the album was complete.

Lil Wayne’s attorney Ron Sweeney confirmed that the rapper has reached a settlement with Cash Money, but did not disclose terms of the deal other than saying he is “happy.”

“Per our settlement agreement, the matter has been amicably resolved to the satisfaction of all parties,” Sweeney told Billboard. “In terms of the particulars, we’re prohibited legally from saying anything further. I can say that my client is happy. He is his own man, a man that owns his assets, his music, and himself. At some point, Wayne will let his fans know what’s going to happen next.”

 

Lil Wayne Lining Up “Velvet” Project

After Lil Wayne teased Tha Carter V, Dedication 6, and Funeral, Young Money President Mack Maine reveals that Tunechi is also planning to release another project.

“We wanna get that Carter V out,” Maine told Revolt. “Wayne also has a dope project called Velvet. We want to get that out.”

Mack Maine says Wayne is also part of a group project titled L.A.T. featuring HoodyBaby and Gudda Gudda. “They going bananas,” he added. But that’s not all for YMCMB, the label is also planning to release Drake’s More Life and the follow-up to Nicki Minaj’s 2014 album The Pinkprint.

“Drake dropping top of the year,” Mack added. “Nicki got some features, I’ve been in the studio with her lately, that she’s just killing. She also gonna be working on her solo project.”

Earlier, Birdman also announced that Tha Carter V will see a release, despite Wayne’s ongoing legal battle with Cash Money.

“It’s definitely coming out,” he said. “The situation with me and my son, I’m going to put it all behind us and just let it move forward. Wayne is one of the best artists ever to do the game, and I want to see him continue to do what he been doing, and I’m going to support whatever he’s doing.”

Last year, he teased a sequel to his joint ColleGrove project with 2 Chainz and recently, he hinted at a potential Young Money compilation. In September, Weezy alarmed fans when he seemed to retire in a series of frustrated tweets. However, he would later clarify his stance. “If that [tweet] was at 3:30 [a.m.], I probably was at the studio at 6,” he said. “The height of my talent or the height of my career, I haven’t reached that at all.”

That makes at least five new possible projects for Lil Wayne in 2017; Tha Carter V, Funeral, Dedication, L.A.T. and Velvet. 2017 could be the year Tunechi brings all right back and reminds us why he still one of the rap game’s elite.

When Life Gives You Lemons, Make Lemonade! Bridman Releases ‘Respek’ Jam

His barely 2 minute interview on the Power Breakfast which involved him literally saying (repeatedly) “Put some Respek when you say my name” went viral and Birdman showed the world how much of a business man he is when he went ahead to create ‘Respek’ merchandise and now, a hit single.

 

That’s right. He’s clearly made lemonade with the lemons that life has dealt him. The real question is of course, whether or not it’s worth all of the hype.

Let me let you decide.

This Is The Reason Why Lil Wayne Wants To Leave Cash Money

It’s been over a year since Lil Wayne first began throwing jabs at Birdman and Cash Money over allegedly not being paid the royalties that he deserves. As the lawsuit continues to play out in court, details surrounding the situation are slowly being revealed; and now we finally have an idea about just what is making Lil Wayne want to leave.

New legal papers show that Lil Wayne was promised a huge chunk of mulla by Cash Money (of which Birdman and Slim are the heads), money that was given to the label by Universal Music Group. Young Money did not receive any of that.

But it doesn’t stop there.

Apparently the deal that Weezy signed with Cash Money stipulates that Lil Wayne was to release a total of 21 albums in a period of just seven years. So far Lil Wayne has released 13.

As much as he calls himself a martian, it is not humanly possible to release 3 (good) albums every year!

How Does YMCMB Becoming CMBRG Sound To You?

If you had any hopes that Birdman and Lil Wayne were going to get back together, they’re not! That break up is almost official. Birdman has already changed YMCMB to CMBRG (Cash Money Rich Gang) and Lil Wayne has gone ahead to release the video to Coco Freestyle which is on Sorry For The Wait 2 mixtape.

Coco Freestyle is a direct shot at Birdman, there’s no doubt about that. In some parts of the video Lil Wayne is in a cage. How he feels about being a member of YMCMB is evident.
