Beef Escalates Between Birdman and Lil Wayne
By: Amanda Anderson-Niles
Lil Wayne is at odds with Birdman because he’s furious Cash Money continues to push back his album, and weeks ago it was rumored the rapper was even considering filing a lawsuit.
Now TMZ reports that settlement talks between both fell through so Weezy should be filing a lawsuit soon.
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.
Sources close to Weezy tell the site he will continue to record material but he won’t release it under the Cash Money umbrella.
