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.
TMZ reports that Birdman owes Lil Wayne that $8 mil as an advance for Tha Carter V that hasn't been paid yet. In addition to this, Wayne is alleging that Birdman is violating their contract by continually withholding release of the project.

While TMZ originally reported Wayne was suing Birdman for $8 million, they've now received reports that Wayne also wants to take his Young Money roster with him when he leaves.
Cortez Bryant, Wayne's manager, spoke on the Wayne Cash Money rift via Instagram. Part of Bryant's two part statement stated "And for all our other artists that's been loyal from the beginning and patiently waiting on their number to be called! That's coming too!"He would go on to mention Jae Millz, Gudda Gudda, Cory Gunz, Lil Twist, and Shanell, while mentioning Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga in a previous message.
TMZ reports that Cash Money's distribution deal with all the Young Money artists will most likely force the issue to be resolved in court.
