In r 2014, when his relationship with Cash Money began to fully break down, Lil Wayneclaimed that the label was refusing to release Tha Carter V. According to TMZ, Wayne is in possession of the Tha Carter V masters and won’t hand them over to Cash Money until he gets paid.
Wayne explained while talking with Skip Bayless, that the comments he made earlier this month, which he described himself as “mentally defeated,” referred to Birdman. “I have a family. I have kids. I have a mother. We got bills. This is just business,” he told Bayless. “Once the business is right, everything is right.”
Birdman is notorious for not paying anyone. It’s a business strategy that has helped him become a very rich man. Wayne’s $51 million lawsuit against Cash Money, filed nearly two years ago, is still pending.
