    When Lil Wayne took to Twitter earlier this week to announce the delay of Carter V, it wasn't all that surprising. What was surprising was his vocal frustration with both the label and his mentor/father figure Birdman. Wayne expressed that he wanted out of his deal as soon as possible, but it wasn't clear whether he'd attempt to see the threat through. Performing at Vice's 20th anniversary party last night, Wayne once again touched on his rickety deal, remarking, "I'm fucked up in a bad situation, but I will be out of it soon."

    There's a whole lot of drama going on at Cash Money these days, but for the most part, there's only a couple of major figures we've heard from directly. Lil Wayne and Tyga have made their feelings clear, but artists like Nicki Minaj and Drake have been less clear about taking sides (though conspiracy theories suggest Drizzy's whole new tape could be read as a middle finger to Birdman). In an interview with BBC Radio 1 Xtra's Charlie Sloth today, Nicki spoke a bit about the situation, and it seems like she'll be letting things play out for the meantime.

    It's almost been a week since Weezy dropped Sorry 4 The Wait 2, shaking up the internets and having stans everywhere claiming Tunechi's back (Tunechi claimed it too). It's a solid compilation of freestyles, with Wayne slaughtering some of the biggest beats from 2014, and although we could very well be sick of most of these instrumentals at this point, somehow Wayne breathes new life into them.

    Cash Money is an indisputable empire, and at the helm, sits Birdman--and, behind the scenes, his brother Slim. In its nearly 25 years of existence, Cash Money has become one of the most successful hip-hop labels of all-time, though many of its living legends look back on their Cash Money days with disdain. When Cash Money and Young Money joined forces, the empire looked to be unstoppable. Now, it looks as though they'll split apart or crumble together. The recent grievances aired by YMCMB's biggest star aren't the first.

    As a former member of Hot Boys, Turk's fortunes didn't exactly pan out like Lil Wayne's after the group fell apart. It looks like him and Weezy still have a few things in common though, because they're both looking to sue Cash Money. With Wayne currently asking Birdman's label for some $51 million in damages related to a delayed Carter V release date, Turk's suit pales in comparison, but is still pretty substantial.
