    The majority of the information we've gotten from the Lil Wayne / Birdman beef that began last December has come from Weezy's camp. He was the one who started things by tweeting that Cash Money was refusing to release Tha Carter V, and since then, lawsuits, diss tracks and onstage insults have followed, all of which have gone unanswered by Stunna. Yesterday, though, the Cash Money CEO sat down with Angie Martinez for an interview that was supposed to set the record straight.

    Getting blazed at 30,000 feet sounds like a pretty amazing time, and for Lil Wayne, the temptation of doing so was enough for him to ignore the warnings of a pilot whose plane he had chartered. Him and his crew lit up shortly after takeoff from Ft. Lauderdale, and the pilot promptly turned the plane around and landed it back in Florida.

    Even as little as nine months ago, no one would have really expected Birdman and Lil Wayne to beef. The two Cash Money titans had a bond that seemed more powerful than your run-of-the-mill rapper/CEO relationship, with their father/son dynamic even birthing an album of its own earlier in the 2000s, and a sense of loyalty that seemed out-of-character for Birdman, at least when you considered his relationships with other Cash Money artists.

On a surface level, this is just great news in terms of potential music, but we can't help but think about the dynamic of the collaboration, as Quan recently parted ways with Rich Gang himself.

    Since the defection and lawsuit of former right-hand man Lil Wayne at the top of 2015, Birdman has been taking one L after another.

    While the response to Lil Wayne’s Free Weezy Album has been polarizing, detractors and fans of the album alike have no problem admitting that Tunechi’s ability to artfully string together some sick verbiage is still intact. With or without auto-tune, the New Orleans emcee is a master of the simile, always dependable when it comes to dropping bars that drop our jaws. Whether you can get down to FWA or not, the TIDAL exclusive’s silver lining is the fact that Lil Wayne’s lyrics usually still deliver.

    After dominating the majority of the most recent millennium, Free Weezy Album marks Lil Wayne's first foray into generating music without the safety net of the Cash Money Records machine that helped make him. More than that, it’s Weezy’s first opportunity to air a slew of infamous grievances, whether it be his fallout with Birdman or new beefs.
