The fight between former “father and son” Birdman Jr. and Lil Wayne continues to get messier and messier.
So far, we’ve learned that Wayne is not and has not been happy with the way things are with Birdman for a long time. Wayne has tweeted about him leaving Cash Money, he’s BLASTED Birdman on Sorry 4 The Wait 2 after holding off the release of Tha Carter V, but now the gloves are off…seriously!
TMZ has reported that Wayne plans to sue Baby and Cash Money for $8 million.
TMZ also reported that the two tried coming to an agreement last week but it wasn’t possible after feeling disrespected by Wayne, and subsequently Birdman wasn’t having it. Now Wayne plans to ask a judge to release him from his Cash Money contract and from Birdman’s thumb. Wayne states that Birdman violated the contract by stopping the release of Tha Carter V.
The reported owed $8 million is said to be from an advance Wayne was supposed to receive from Tha Carter V and although Birdman claims that Wayne’s album will be released “in due time”, that just isn’t enough for the Young Money CEO.
Wayne has said that he will continue to record but will release music away from Cash Money.
No more “Like Father, Like Son”. Is it safe to say this MAY be the messiest and worse breakup in hip hop??
