Lil Wayne filed a lawsuit against Cash Money Records and Universal Music Group back in May for allegedly not receiving all the royalties he was due. The rapper has since been very vocal about his ongoing battle with the companies, and his new found beef with Birdman.
Now, things are beginning to heat up. According to The Jasmine Brand, a federal court judge has decided Lil Wayne’s claims in his lawsuit against Birdman and Universal are very similar, so they’ll have to proceed with one before they tackle the other.
Weezy is forced to make amends with Birdman first, if he’s looking to rack in cash from the ongoing lawsuits. The decision made in the lawsuit against his “father” could have a huge impact on his pending case against UMG, so it’s only right he focuses on one at a time.
Weezy isn’t too pleased with the court’s decision, as he believes the cases don’t intertwine.
Lil Wayne has been known as Birdman’s “son” ever since the beginning of his career. The two created their own tight-knit family, and formed their own label, Cash Money/Young Money Records, together. Hopefully they can hash out their differences and come to a common ground regarding their issues.
