Lil Wayne’s ongoing lawsuit against Cash Money doesn’t look like it will be ironed out any time soon, as the Young Money boss has reported made new claims against Birdman & Co.
According to TMZ, new details have emerged in the proceedings. Wayne now claims that he has letters from Drake and Tyga’s reps that they were missing funds. The site also reports that Weezy claims he has a separate written complaint from Nicki Minaj’s producers, who also say they were shortened on due fees. Consequently, Wayne is moving to hold Birdman responsible for these payments.
Lawsuits have been thrown left and right for the duration of Wayne and Birdman’s fallout. Both parties have been sued by producers who worked on Tha Carter albums; DVLP slapped the Birdman with a whopping $200,000 suit and David Banner is reportedly suing Wayne for over $154,000. Additionally, Young Money alleges that they did not receive its fair share of a $100 million advance from Universal Records. Cash Money, on the other hand, says it paid Young Money over $100 million in advances, and that Wayne never met his 21 albums in 7 years.
Tyga has openly aired out his grievances with Young Money. Drake and Nicki Minaj have been relatively quiet regarding the legal issues between Lil Wayne and Birdman. In his first time speaking out since the dispute went public, Birdman told Angie Martinez that he was unsure of Young Money’s fate, but that he had high hopes the two labels would stay together.
“I don’t really know what the business relationship gon’ be with me and Wayne. We built this. That’s my partner—we built this. I would prefer him to be with me,” he said.
