Lil Wayne is suing Birdman for $51 million dollars. He refuses to leave Cash Money without his cash money AND his Young Money artists.
It was initially reported that Weezy was suing Baby for the $8 million advance he was owed for The Carter V…but it looks like he’s decided to up the amount.
Wayne wants the judge to declare he’s the joint copyright owner of all Young Money recordings … which includes Drake, Nicki Minaj and several others.
Sources connected to Wayne tell TMZ … if Birdman antes up then he can release “Tha Carter V,” but only if Wayne gets paid. Wayne says he was supposed to get an $8 million advance when he began recording in December, 2013 and another 2M when he completed the album a year later, but so far he’s gotten nothing.
The 21-page lawsuit has surfaced, and if you’re up for the read — it breaks down Weezy & Baby’s long history of money issues.
