If you need some not-so-light reading today, you can have a look at the 21-page lawsuit from Lil Wayne, against Cash Money. After reporting on the suit yesterday, which is for $51 million, all the documents from the lawsuit have now surfaced online.
Lil Wayne kept to his word, and his filed a lawsuit against Birdman/Cash Money in an effort to get out of his contract. The other week when we initially reported on Weezy's plan to sue his father, it was thought that he'd sue for the sum of $8 million, plus freedom from the label.
After almost two months of Lil Wayne complaining about his record label, it looks like he's finally doing something legal about it. The Cash Money/Young Money MC will target CEO Birdman in a suit that will ask for both $8 million and Wayne's freedom from the label.
There hasn't been much in the way of updates when it comes to the turmoil between Lil Wayne and Birdman. Last month Weezy threatened his label with a lawsuit, letting them know he wasn't playing around.
Birdman may not be able to brag about boolin' in the bondo on the next Rich Gang mixtape, as the Ivy Condo Association is attempting to take the space away from him. TMZ reports that the Cash Money mogul's checks have been bouncing, and he's accumulated $12,500 in unpaid fees for the home.
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.
With Lil Wayne and Tyga seeming all but ready to jump ship yesterday, Cash Money Records' stacked roster appears to be in danger of losing a few of its hottest talents. Cortez Bryant (Weezy's longtime manager), however, insists that everything is "good" inside the label.
Birdman continues to take Young Thug under his wing, although he may or may not be actually signed to YMCMB. Nevertheless, after doing a photo shoot together for Complex, they once again come together for the cover of RESPECT magazine's latest issue.
