Finally Free !! Lil Wayne Wins Lawsuit VS Birdman & Cash Money Records | Granted $10 Million & Out Of His Contract
The legal battle between Lil Wayne and Birdman has been going on FOREVER, but it’s finally figured out.
Weezy originally sued Birdman’s Cash Money Records, to have his record deal tossed. He accused the label of owing him tens of millions of dollars, including an $8 million advance for “Tha Carter V,” plus $2 million once the album was finished.Weezy F Baby and the “F” is for “Finally.” After years of going back and forth with Birdman as he attempted to have his Cash Money contract voided with clearance to release his long-awaited Tha Carter V album, Wayne and Birdman reportedly reached a settlement today as Weezy was awarded upwards of $10 million. With the agreement, Wayne’s ties to Cash Money have effectively been nullified, allowing him to release his forthcoming work through Universal. Since their dispute had been ongoing for years, it felt unrealistic to expect Carter V to drop in the near future but, today, that sentiment changed.
Now here’s the agreement: The Blast reports that Universal handed over “well over $10 Million” to Weezy F. Baby. In exchange, they received the rights to put out Tha Carter V, which they’re happy about. They feel like they will recoup all of the money back in streams and sales. Birdman didn’t have to give up a penny to his son in the deal. Instead, he had to trash Lil Wayne’s Cash Money contract.
Reginae Carter could not be any more excited for her dad’s next album to be revealed to the world. Celebrating her Throwback Thursday in an appropriate fashion, Nae uploaded an old image of her dad laying down on top of stacks of cash. While the photo dates back to a different era, Wayne is likely mimicking the same pose as we write this. Coming across a sum of dough larger than $10 million, Weezy has a lot of extra paper on his hands right now. In the post, Reginae captioned her photo by declaring her father is the greatest to ever do it, writing, “The GOAT 🐐 #Icantmakethisup.”
Everyone’s happy! Are you ready to listen to that Carter V, or nah?
