Weezy will ask a judge to free him from Cash Money Records and Birdman’s control, TMZ reports.
A day after it was reported that Birdman was frustrated with Lil Wayne, following the choice words used by the New Orleans rapper on the opening track of his Sorry For The Wait 2 mixtape, new reports are stating that Lil Wayne is claiming Birdman owes him $8 million as an advance for his last album.
It’s unclear which album Lil Wayne is referring to, however according to new reports by TMZ, settlement talks between the two rappers have broken down and Lil Wayne is now preparing to sue Birdman Sr.
“The 2 titans tried coming to terms this week but it wasn’t meant to be,” the TMZ article says. “Now Wayne will ask a judge to declare him free of Cash Money and Birdman’s control. Wayne says Birdman has violated their contract by withholding the release of his new album.”
The report also adds that “Wayne will keep recording but he will release his works outside of the Cash Money umbrella.”
This past Thursday (January 22) it was reported by TMZ that Birdman was angry with Lil Wayne for the string of references made on Sorry For The Wait 2’s opening track, a remix of O.T. Genasis’ “CoCo.”
“Our sources say Birdman is angry on 2 fronts … that Wayne is trying to bail on a binding contract and even more personal, he’s putting their relationship on blast,” TMZ sources say.
