Lil Wayne Claims Universal Music Group Collaborated With Birdman In His Cash Money Lawsuit

There has finally been an update in Lil Wayne‘s ongoing lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money Records!

According to TMZ, who have obtained new documents in the case, Weezy is claiming Baby and Universal Music Group worked together to cheat him out of millions of dollars.

Tune‘s lawyer, Howard King, has filed docs in a New Orleans court saying Cash Money and Universal backdated a deal to make it look like Tune signed it before Young Money‘s contract with CM expired.

Also in the docs, Tunechi‘s team are saying UMG knew all along that putting an earlier date on the deal would screw him out of profits from his Young Mula artists!

      • IT WAS THO

        • Zay

    #FREEC5 don’t wait on it no more…let these all “lil” rapper impersonators know what’s poppin

  • Jeremy J

    Wayne should just drop C5,that’s his last contractual album out of the deal,then he would be free to do whatever. Go make up that money with Jay or whatever. We need you,fuk cash money

    • Raz!

      i dont think its that simple

    • Jalen To’trill Gloston

      C5 supposed to be the last of the carter albums, Wayne might be tryna keep the pinnacle of his carter reign out of Birdman hands. If Wayne been getting hit over the head this whole time behind his back, it’s only right he don’t let birdman or universal benefit

  • Tuned #POP #FreeGates

    This the only update after months of waiting, boy what

  • Raz!

    this lawsuit is never ending and i have a feeling its gonna be a long time before we get a next wayne project….. i’ve already overplayed these 4 songs

  • CarterBoy

    Will this case ever end? 🙁

  • Nijee

    All He Has To Do is change his stage name

  • ALLRED-7

    Fuck all this lawsuit bullshit. I’m grateful for these four new songs, they all fire.

  • SamsonFBaby

    Why would Wayne wanna sign to Roc Nation if they’re distributed by Universal, the same as Cash Money? A artist of Wayne’s stature shouldn’t even wanna sign to another rappers label at this point, he’s fighting for his freedom to leave Cash Money just to sign to another rapper?…makes sense. That’s hustlin backwards in my opinion.

    • HE WOULD OBVIOUSLY SIGN A BETTER CONTRACT THAN WHAT HE DID AT CASH MONEY

      • SamsonFBaby

        With Roc Nation? Possibly, but that’s not the point. He’s suing Universal just to sign back to Universal again, what sort of logic is that? Why not make YM independent, and/or get a distribution deal with Sony or Warner like OVO? Or if he really loves Universal that much, then make YM independent and leave Cash Money & get a distribution deal straight through Universal? Wayne is a big rapper, him signing to another rappers label makes no sense. Like JAY-Z said “Y’all out here still takin’ advances, huh?
        Me and my niggas takin’ real chances, uh”. Yes, Wayne is/was a big star, especially when Lollipop came out etc, but in terms of his success, popularity & business, he’s nowhere near JAY-Z & he never will be, Jay likes to have his own, Jay is successful because of Jay, whereas Wayne’s signed to Cash Money, his own label isn’t even majority owned by himself, and now he wants to leave one rappers label just to sign to another rappers label, even though he can clearly be successful without them. Why sign & split money with Roc Nation when he could just make YM be on Roc Nation’s level himself? Doesn’t make sense. If it was any other rapper with less success & popularity than Wayne, then cool, sign away, but Wayne is a legend, an icon, and idol, he shouldn’t be signing to another rapper, other rappers should be signing to HIM.

        • 1017BLOOD

          I been saying this, these niggas cant comprehend simple facts

    • Esoteric Khosta

      I dont think he wants to sign under them, he wants to rather collab with them. Maybe he wants their management

  • Torianbadass

    His dragon ball head ass

  • Justin Cayz

    I have a feeling this case will forever be unsolved.. Nigga gon be featured on Cold Case in 20 years

  • Fonz Bentley

    We ain’t never getting the Carter 5. It took so much out of him just to release these 4 songs which were from the LAT album and magnolia freestyle which seems like a D6 track. He’s at a place now where he’s not tryingnto keep releasing free music he wants to get paid for his music without Birdman getting a cut which is why we don’t have any of the 4 projects he announced were done last year and since Ima true Wayne fan if he can’t drop shit by November December he needs to hang it up cuz it clear his lawsuits ain’t doing too good

    • Malik Mandingo

      If he retired then he should just release the music and get paid a little and then do shows for however long he wants

    • Esoteric Khosta

      stfu hang it up?

      • Mystic Weezy#Comebacktime

        I don’t want wayne to retire but remember he said he would retire at 35

  • Malik Mandingo

    Damn this shit really is deeper than just birdman Sandusky… Wayne don’t want to make either UMG or SaNdusky any richer off his work. Fuck birdman Sandusky and Kodak Wack

    • Esoteric Khosta

      lmao “Birdman Sandusky”

  • Weezy

    Thats some fuckery fr fr

  • YoitsChico

    Lol at everyone on here thinking they know what’s best for wayne… “he should retire” “he should just put it out” he should do this and that… Foh you should be worrying bout your damn self…

    I know rap very well, but I’m sorry I don’t think hoodybaby suck at all I love his style he got a nice flow and bars I’ll rather listen to him then the new niggas

    • WeezyLEF

      If you “love Hoody’s style” then bad news for ya, you dont know rap very well…

      • Eli

        Honestly his bars be better than waynes sometimes and I’ll kill for wayne lol but hoody baby sound is different and unique

        • ❤️Mula gang💰

          Nigga What 😐

          • Eli

            Just my opinion

        • WeezyLEF

          Hell no, his cocaine lines (since that is literally the only thing he raps about) are mediocre at best. And he always sounds like he’s out of breath lol

          • Eli

            Lol yeah he do, but he aint trash he’ll make some noise in todays industry if wayne could ever get the opportunity to do what he want

  • Tunefan1234

    Guys if wayne changed his stage name yes he would be able to release music freely but he wouldn’t be able to release C5. C5 is owned by cash money records

    • Nijee

      Exactly But He Not Going Have Nicki Or Drake as well

  • #1Stunna

    This shit sad tbh. His own Daddy and Universal the company he made 100’s of millions for plotted against him to screw him over…
    Money is the root to all evil.

  • ❤️Mula gang💰

  • David D

  • TooReal

    I just tried to listen to the original version of Magnolia cuz I never heard him rap before and I was curious to see if he went hard on the beat and that shit was trash Wayne took his flow and added on his own flow it just murked that bih

    • Esoteric Khosta

      tbh

    • Sinatra

      Listen to Tory lanez version he sound exactly like Wayne.

  • Weezy

    The second verse on fireworks is my favourite off the whole project..thT verse itself is in repeat..magnolia growin on me aswell

    • Man Man

      Man that fucking loyalty verse was my favorite

      • Weezy

        I cant stop listening to fireworks

    • ❤️Mula gang💰

      Fireworks growing on me fr magnolia 🔥 and loyalty flames without hood & Mula gang good with hood Jay Jones did alright

      • Weezy

        I agree

        • ❤️Mula gang💰

          Gudda spazzed On loyalty and wayne came back and killed that nigga with kindness 😂

          • Weezy

            Loll truuu. What can u do its wayne, im sure he doesnt do it intentionally 😂

            • ❤️Mula gang💰

              Wayne sounded hungry on that and magnolia and Mula gang fireworks was good too

  • Weezy

    Presidential suite or the penthouse, black skinny jeans get the lint out 🎶

      • Dr Carter

        Wayne til I die fam !

    • Weezy504

      They’re both great

    • WeezyLEF

      Well, both are great in their own lanes, that’s for sure

      • MuddyCupSavage (Untouchable)

        • Knudtsen

          Weezy no doubt! He cant be touch, never will, imo ofcourse

    • MuddyCupSavage (Untouchable)

  • WeezyLEF

    So we gon act like Tyler, The Creator doesn’t have a Wayne feature on his upcoming album?

    • Knudtsen

      When do tyler drop?

      • #1Stunna

        like 3 weeks

    • Mystic Weezy#Comebacktime

      Eh I’m tired of hearing features..waynes may or may not spit some fire for 30 sec 45 if were lucky then that’s it..im really tired of forwarding the other artist verse

      • AutoTunechi

        Hes gonna go ham on a tyler song tho

      • WeezyLEF

        Forwarding Tyler tho? Come on now… Smuckers (featuring Ye too) was amazing. Most of the features Wayne has done the last two years were good wholly, stop dickriding… Always excited for a new Wayne verse, especially with a good artist like Tyler

      • MuddyCupSavage (Untouchable)

        but it’s tyler tho, he n wayne and kanye killed smuckers.

  • Blaker

    When’s y’all’s predictions at this point for d6 dropping?

    • Mystic Weezy#Comebacktime

      Soon

    • MuddyCupSavage (Untouchable)

      i think drama was fuckin wit us and Wayne was just releasing ITWT at the same time so coincidence, but now that drama seen the hype he’ll probably consider puttin it out sooner. that is if they actually been workin on it.

  • ❤️Mula gang💰

    Magnolia replay value 🔥

  • Birdshit & UMG pray to the Devil

  • XXL said Wayne is gonna be featured on a track for Tylers new album July 21!

    • called “dropping seeds”

      • MuddyCupSavage (Untouchable)

        dope, i think wayne n tyler a good combo

  • BenjyBuddy

    What if Wayne Lawyers just suck and got shit all wrong to where Wayne end up being wrong from jump ?

  • T-Chubbs

          • Tuned #POP #FreeGates

            lol yeah it’s gone be them few songs you fw hard but then you gone start getting bored of the same half ass flow

      • MuddyCupSavage (Untouchable)

        there was like 2 really good tracks but like tuned said its too much 21 and it seems repetitive sometimes. worth a listen doe

  • King Slime Thugger

    YFS better than every song from the tape

    • ⚜️BATMAN🛡

      For once I agree with yo gay ass

  • Lol shout out to Wayne for trying be patient , cuz I’d been done put a gun to birdman head

    • King Slime Thugger

      Wayne aint built for that life, he hiding behind lawyers and judges

      • WeezyLEF

        To me it seems like the right thing to do…

        • It is , but birdman a grimey nigga , and i don’t think he would snitch if niggas ran down on em

          • WeezyLEF

            Well, I guess I ain’t built for that life either lol, just don’t want things to escalate the wrong way

            • lol I feel you but birdman already got his bus hit up allegedly

              • WeezyLEF

                One thing that’s for sure is that a lotta shit been going on behind the scenes, we’ll see

      • Right that’s what the niggas around him supposed to be for “goon squad” but who knows lol

  • WeezyLEF

    That EP from Wayne was cool, the songs have started to grow on me. Fireworks is a banger and that Loyalty instrumental is hard!

    • MuddyCupSavage (Untouchable)

      loyalty beat literally had “wayne finna kill this” written all over it

  • MuddyCupSavage (Untouchable)

    idk if any of u are tory fans, but i heard this feature with some dude named Prospectt called “news” and tory killed that shit. he been goin off lately.

  • MuddyCupSavage (Untouchable)

    waynes flow on loyalty starting at “play pussy get fucked…” till the end is fuckin smooth
