[MUSIC NEWS]: LIL WAYNE TO SUE BIRDMAN FOR RELEASE FROM CASH MONEY, PLANS TO TAKE NICKI & DRAKE w/ HIM


Lil Wayne and Birdman are officially at war. Weezy plans to sue his mentor after settlement talks failed.

TMZ reports that the two tried to come to a resolution, but now Wayne will take Birdman to court to free him of Cash Money’s control.

Wayne says Birdman has violated their contract by withholding the release of Tha Carter V, and claims that Birdman owes him an $8 million advance for the album.

Birdman has held his ground, saying that he will release the album “in due time,” but that hasn’t appeased Wayne.

The Young Money rapper will continue to record and release his music outside of Cash Money.

Weezy has been very vocal about his beef with the label. He most recently declared his independence from Birdman on a remix to O.T. Genasis’ “CoCo” off his mixtape Sorry 4 the Wait 2.

“Cash Money is an army, I’m a one-man army / And if them n**as comin’ for me, I’m goin’ out like Tony / Now I don’t want no problems, I just want my money,” he raps. “All I got is Young Money, no more Cash, ni**a.”

UPDATE: 
In addition to demanding money, TMZ reports that Wayne will sue Birdman to ensure that Young Money’s artists remain under his control.

In addition to Drake and Nicki, this includes the rest of the Young Money roster—Christina Milian, Lil Twist, and Mack Maine, who doubles as the label’s president.

Weezy believes the artists should go with him because their contracts are with Young Money.

Cash Money has a distribution deal with all of Young Money’s acts. The issue will likely have to be settled in court, but Wayne is adamant about taking his crew with him.

He also seems confident about Drake and Nicki’s loyalty to him. On his remix to “CoCo” off his mixtape Sorry 4 the Wait 2, he boasts, “I ain’t trippin’, I got Barbie, I got Drake too.”
