Birdman and Lil Wayne have officially declared war … settlement talks have broken down and Wayne will now sue his mentor, claiming among other things Birdman owes him $8 million.
As TMZ reported … the 2 titans tried coming to terms this week but it wasn’t meant to be. 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.
As for the $8 MIL claim … Wayne says Birdman owed the money for his latest album — it was supposed to be an advance.
Birdman has held firm … he will release the album “in due time,” but clearly that’s not good enough for Wayne.
We’re told Wayne will keep recording but he will release his works outside of the Cash Money umbrella.
We bet Wezzy won’t need an umbrella when it’s time for Birdman to make it rain 8 million times.
Remember back in 2008, when Lil Wayne almost signed with Jay Z?
If his tweets are real, he may be regretting he didn’t go through with that move. Today, the Young Money rapper took to Twitter to express his disgust with his label who he says is holding up the release of his album, Tha Carter V. He also said that he wants out.
“To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won’t and hasn’t been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it. This is not my fault. I am truly and deeply sorry to all my fans but most of all to myself and my family for putting us in this situation. I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain’t that easy. I am a prisoner and so is my creativity. Again, I am truly sorry and I don’t blame ya if ya fed up with waiting 4 me & this album. But thk u.”
He later tweeted:
Meanwhile rapper Pusha T took the opportunity to do a little recruiting, telling Wayne to head over to G.O.O.D. Music is he doesn’t want the hassle.
Lil Wayne is alive and tweeting.
Tweets appeared on the official Twitter page of the 30-year-old rapper today reassuring fans of his improving health.
“I’m feeling a lot better and again thk u all for ur love and prayers. It was truly felt…pause,” the tweet said. He also shared that he was watching “Highly Questionable” on ESPN 2 earlier today.
