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.”
