Lil Wayne Sues Birdman’s Cash Money Records for $51 Million
A milli here, a milli there. Lil Wayne's issues with Cash Money have officially hit the courtroom. The rapper is suing the record label to terminate his contract, plus he wants a whopping $51 million.
Sources say that Cash Money was set to give Wayne $8 million as an advance to record the album in 2013, and another $2 million when he completed recording. Thus far, he's received nothing. The 'Believe Me' rhymer wants to be rid of the label and to walk away with a ton of money.
Before news spread of this $51 million lawsuit there was talk that Weezy was planning to sue Baby for $8 million since an amicable agreement could not be reached.
Further, Wayne wants to be declared the joint copyright owner of all Young Money recordings, which includes Drake, Nicki Minaj and others. We reported that Weezy wants to take all of the artists he feels that he discovered with him when he ultimately jumps ship.
