It’s about to go down! Lil
Weezy was serious when he said he wanted OUT of the empire he helped to build. And according to new legal documents, Wayne claims Birdman violated his contract after not coughing up the millions he was owed for his much delayed Tha Cater V album. Now it all makes sense why the album wasn't released...MONEY! We know Cash Money has a rumored history about not paying their artists.
And since Birdman won’t PAY up, Wayne says he’s walking (taking his Young Money crew with him) and he now wants $51 milli!
Wayne wants the judge to declare he's the joint copyright owner of all Young Money recordings ... which includes Drake, Nicki Minaj and several others.
Sources connected to Wayne tell TMZ ... if Birdman antes up then he can release "Tha Carter V," but only if Wayne gets paid. Wayne says he was supposed to get an $8 million advance when he began recording in December, 2013 and another 2M when he completed the album a year later, but so far he's gotten nothing.
