Damn. Remember a few days ago when we said that Lil’ Wayne was going to sue Birdman and Cash Money for $8 million dollars? (see here) Eff that, Weezy’s going for that top dollar now, to the tune of $51 million!
The lawsuit has been obtained by TMZ, and it reportedly states that Birdman breeched Wayne’s contract by withholding tens of millions of dollars he’s owed by Cash Money as a result of the delayed album Tha Carter 5. Tunechi claims that because he’s not being paid what he’s owed, he’s allowed to walk from their contract.
Hot New Hip Hop reports that He’s not just seeking his freedom though, Wayne’s suing Birdman to the tune of $51 million, and he is asking the judge to declare him joint copyright holder of all Young Money recordings.
Apparently Lil Wayne was supposed to receive an $8 million advance when he began working on C5 in December 2013, and another $2 million after completing the album, however thus far he’s received zero dollars.
