Young Money boss Lil Wayne wants some explanations. The rap star is reportedly going after Cash Money head Birdman for spending $70 million of their shared money.
According to reports, Weezy wants Baby to cough up proof on what he spent a grip of their $100 million Universal Music Group advance on.
He’s clearly pissed because, on paper anyway, he and Birdman are partners on Cash Money/Young Money. He claims Birdman’s admitted spending approximately $70 mil of the advance on royalties, marketing and recording expenses — but now Wayne wants to see receipts to back that up. Birdman’s camp says it’s already handed over 22,015 pages of docs to Wayne’s lawyers! Team Weezy says none of those pages included details on how the $70 mil was spent. (TMZ)
Earlier this week, rap veteran Master P talked about Wayne’s publicized Birdman and Cash Money feud.
“I think they’re eventually going to work it out because they’re hurting theyself,” he says. “They both losing money. I think Lil Wayne is probably one of the biggest artists in the world. Nobody’s gonna be able to take that away from him. I think that Baby built something from Louisiana and people got to respect that. Together they made something powerful. Now they just gotta figure out how to go separate ways with it. I’ve been working with Lil Wayne. I’ve got another record with him. Shout out to little homie. I definitely want to see him win.” (HHDX)
Recent reports claimed Rap-A-Lot Records head J Prince is going to help Wayne out in the legal feud.
He tells TMZ, “Where [Wayne] is weak, I am strong. He has gained an ally, and together we will get back all money owed to him and my son off the Drake albums.” If you didn’t know … his son, Jas Prince, discovered Drake and set him up with Weezy and Young Money. James adds, “I witnessed the hard work that went into Drake’s career and for Cash Money to try and take something that isn’t theirs to take, does not sit well with me and family around the world.” (TMZ)
This week, Wayne responded to backlash he received for discussing his YMCMB issues on Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed” sports show.
