Birdman Claims Lil Wayne & Cortez Bryant Have Been Arranging A Way To Earn A Bigger Share Of Drake Royalties

Even though it seemed like everything was getting back to normal between Lil Wayne and Birdman, it looks like their feud is still ongoing.

According to The Blast, Baby is accusing Wayne and his manager/best friend Cortez Bryant of taking part in an elaborate plan to earn more money from Drake‘s music.

Last year, Aspire Music Group, which is a record label co-founded by Tez Poe, sued Cash Money Records and Universal Music Group for not paying the revenue that they owed from Drizzy‘s royalties.

After looking at the documents, Aspire are claiming that they discovered the 6 God and have a deal in place with Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money permitting them to a 1/3 share of the net profits from Drake‘s first six projects.

Birdman and CM counter-sued Aspire Music Group‘s lawsuit on Friday (August 17th) by accusing Weezy and Tez for plotting with their lawyer Ronald Sweeney to get richer off a bigger share of Drizzy Drake‘s royalties:

“Aspire was simply a shell company. There was no business purpose to forming Aspire, other than to siphon profits out of the joint venture and to divert those profits to Sweeney, Bryant, and Carter/ Young Money. Aspire never conducted any business other than getting Drake signed to a record label. Aspire has never signed, nor sought to sign, a single additional artist.”

Cash Money Records are now demanding that Aspire dismiss their lawsuit against them and are suing for fraud, aiding and abetting a breach of fiduciary duty, and interference with contractual relations!

      You dumb ass African don’t ever group me with some fuck niggas I’m the goat the NDB Ima have to bring back the RealShit List now

  • N.O. Samson

    Aspire sued Cash Money. Cash Money are countersuing. Basically, the YM/CM joint venture was 49%/51, but since Drake was signed to Aspire & YM, they both get 1/3 of the profits, so 66% to them & 33% to Cash Money. Birdman is basically saying Aspire is a fake company, it’s just a way for Young Money to get more profit/royalties/masters/rights from Drake

  • Lu

    Stop being so salty birdman let it go.

  • Scream☁️9FDAWORLD

    😂 😂 😂 Lmfao that birdshit

  • N.O. Samson

    Aspire Records, CM are countersueing so I wanna say Tez, but since Wayne & his lawyer are mentioned now, maybe it’s all 3 of them. But they’re suing Aspire though, not YM. Birdman’s saying they created a shell company so Birdman would make less from the YM/CM joint venture…not gonna lie though, I’ve always thought Wayne has secretly part of Aspire too, it actually makes sense, I believe Birdman tbh. But Birdman clearly already knew that from the start. Wayne probably knew Birdman would screw him/YM/Drake over

    • Keeze Mojito

      Smart move 66%

    • Keeze Mojito

      Smart love 66%

  • N.O. Samson

    Birdman’s probably right about Aspire being a shell company, I’ve always thought that & I always thought Wayne & Jas (maybe) were part of it too. But Birdman clearly already knew that when he/they signed the deal. It’s kinda snakey how he’s only making it an issue now because YM & Aspire sued him

    • Keeze Mojito

      Hes hurt Wayne is free

      • N.O. Samson

        Facts. He’ll act nice to Wayne’s face but do whatever it takes to destroy him behind the scenes

  • N.O. Samson

    If Wayne really is part of/behind Aspire though, that’s actually a really great decision. He makes 66% of Drake’s profit, royalties etc, meanwhile Cash Money only get 33%. He probably knew Birdman would try to screw then over. Wayne SHOULD get most of it anyway, Wayne made Drake, not Birdman

    • Keeze Mojito

      Yup thats when you know tez aint dumb.

    • BirdFlipper

      Drake wouldn’t make 1% of his own shit. Cut it out 😂😭😭. Its saying that cash money owes aspire 33% of the profit they made from drakes first 6 projects… so if they made 90mill they owe aspire 30 mill..

      • N.O. Samson

        When I 66% & 33%, common sense should let you know I’m rounding down. Obviously it’s 66.6666 etc and 33.3333 etc to make 100%. When you work an ordinary job, the owner gets the money & then he pays the members of staff, right? That’s exactly how a label works too so I have no idea what you’re talking about tbh. Nowhere did I say Drake makes 1%. And no, the lawsuit or this post doesn’t say Cash Money owes Aspire 33%, you clearly didn’t read it properly or read any of the other previous lawsuits (well it does but only to reference why Birdman is countersuing). YES, Aspire did sue Cash Money over profits, but this is about Cash Money countersuing them so that’s irrelevant tbh. Read it again, I don’t know where you’re going with this

  • N.O. Samson

    …but then as smart as that may be, that makes me question why Wayne’s own deal was fucked up. Maybe he learned from his own mistakes 🤷🏾‍♂️

    • YungJackBauer

      They say we learn from mistakes so that’s why they mistake me

      • Big Tune or Lil Tune

        🐐 Shit!

  • N.O. Samson

    It’s funny because YM sued CM and it got settled, and then Aspire sued CM straight after. Wayne’s tryna secure the bag

  • N.O. Samson

    I wonder why Drake’s deal was so different to the rest of YM’s. I would say maybe they knew they’d make a lot of money from him, but you’re supposed to think that about ALL your artists

    • Giraffe Boy

      cause drake has a smart team around him that know what they are doing

      • N.O. Samson

        True. I’m surprised Wayne didn’t know, but it makes sense, all he’s known his whole life is Baby. I’m sure Baby has prevented Wayne from working with some people

  • N.O. Samson

    FACTS! 😂

  • Giraffe Boy

    fuck birdman but fuck tez too…. and fat maine

  • Giraffe Boy

    rebirth >>>>>

  • Giraffe Boy

    both

    tez and his label + young money

  • Don Plantmen

    Monday Morning Fellas, lets get this bag!!!!

  • Kennykenkentune#🥀🥀OG

    Birdshit is hurt 😂

  • FoFoBullDogg

    They’re suing Cortez and HIS label only. Young Money has nothing to do with this

  • Keeze Mojito

    Hold THis L birdbitch hahahahahahaahahaha now you wanna sue?? Now that Wayne IS free 😂😂😂

  • King Slime Thugger

    Wouldn’t be surprised if Cash money win the lawsuit, according to that report they got the upper hand

    • Keeze Mojito

      Even if they Win , aspire dont even Care, Drake isnt signed to CMB no more and according to Mack maine hes still signed to YM with his Big bro wayne. UMG cleaned everything. Birdman lost that War hes done. Nicki the only one still on CMB,

      • King Slime Thugger

        Lol when did mack maine say that ?

        • Keeze Mojito

          On IG somebody asked him.

    • I THOUGHT IT WAS OVER WITH

  • Keeze Mojito

    Drake is signed TO YMUMG just like Wayne rigght now, hes not on CMB wayne isnt also, Birdman is suing because now everybody left and Nicki kinda flopping. Hes doneeeee karma IS a bitch.

    • King Slime Thugger

      Wayne wanted 50mil or something wild and got like 10mil..birdman still the real winner

      • Keeze Mojito

        Birdman is broke cannot pay, Wayne sued for 50 m’s and got around 15 to 20 m’s, own his assets, music. Who won ? Drake left also so tell me who won ? Wayne won that War hands down.

  • THIS IS ALL GETTING TO MESSY

    WE JUST WANT NEW MUSIC

  • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

    Do ya’ll think we would’ve got C5 by 2015 if Wayne didnt break ties with Bird. Sure he may not have gotta paid as much as he potentially could now….but he coulda started this legal battle with him after haven waited a bit longer…

  • Don Plantmen

    Real talk tho…. i can only imagine how much longer we have to wait to hear Rebirth 2 🙁

      • Don Plantmen

        Same dawg, Rebirth touched me on another level, like i personally fucked with Waynes flow and delivery but on Rebirth his thoughts are in his lyrics and it shows, super dope album, i hope Rebirth 2 still in the works!

    • PresidentTrumpOGFurorOfThe45th

      Ya dig? And all this and more could have been on and poppin within the last 4 years had it not been for the beef….

  • Slime Dwise

    I’m tired of this shit.

    Just keep C5. I don’t care anymore.

    And no dickriders, I won’t be bumping it when it drops. I have a feeling it’ll be mediocre like all the other YM releases this year.

    • RSB

    • King Slime Thugger

      Im pretty sure wayne himself don’t know what he was talking about on his last feature..let alone a track 3 years ago

  • Jameis Winston

    If y’all had to pick a number, how many unreleased Wayne songs do you think there are?

    • Slime Dwise

      If he really record everday then 1000+.

      But I don’t really believe that, he seems more into sports and club parties these days.

      So I think 100-300.

    • RSB

      2018

    • N.O. Samson

      Definitely other a thousand but not necessarily ‘songs’. As in some may be unfinished, or ideas that he had but didn’t complete it etc, like Tupac (I’m not saying Tupac had/has other 1000 btw)

    • Jake Sharma #FreeJuelz🐯

    • A.T
