Earlier this month, it was reported that Jas Prince, the son of Rap-A-Lot CEO James Prince, and the man who introduced Drake to Lil Wayne, was demanding that Cash Money Records pay him $11 million in royalties earned off the "Hotline Bling" star.
You may remember that Jas Prince, a.k.a. the man who discovered Drake, filed legal documents against Cash Money earlier this year, demanding that they open their books and reveal the dollar amount they made off of Champagne Papi.
When Lil Wayne announced that he had "signed a deal" with Jay Z last night, it was assumed that the rapper had found some sort of alternative to his current record deal-- whether it be through Roc Nation or Tidal.
Another day passes, another person speaks out on the possible rift between Wayne and Cash Money. This time, it's Wayne's longtime manager, Cortez Bryant. Bryant took to his Instagram, speaking on Wayne's vision for Young Money:
More trouble in the Young Money camp. Earlier this week, Tyga voiced his frustration with the label, suggesting that YM is holding his album "hostage", before threatening to leak it himself.
Drake announced on stage the other month that Lil Wayne's highly anticipated Tha Carter V would be arriving on May 5th. Weezy F fans instantly got excited, but since then, we haven't heard so much as a whisper from Wayne music-wise.
