It’s a lot more serious than disgruntled tweets now
Late last year, Lil Wayne shocked the industry when he voiced his displeasure with Birdman, Cash Money and others in the YMCMB infrastructure at the way he’s been underpaid, and the way the roll out of his long-awaited new album, Tha Carter V, has been handled. For weeks there have been rumors about Wayne’s next course of action, but today we have confirmed reports.
TMZ has obtained a copy of the lawsuit Weezy is slapping Baby with, in which he’s asked a judge to terminate his contract with Birdman, and requested the rights to take Drake and Nicki Minaj with him. According to Wayne, he was supposed to receive an $8 million advance when he began recording Tha Carter V, and another $2 million upon its completion, but he’s received neither compensation.
Lil Wayne signed a 4 album extension with Cash Money Records in the spring of 2012.
