Birdman & Young Thug Plead For Gag Order In Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting Lawsuit

Birdman & Young Thug Plead For Gag Order In Lil Wayne Tour Bus Shooting Lawsuit

Both Birdman and Young Thug have asked a Cobb County State Court judge to issue a gag order in the lawsuit involving them with the Lil Wayne tour bus shooting in Atlanta back in 2015.

For those who are unaware, a gag order is a legal order by courts or governments that keeps information from being made public. Baby and Thugger want to silence Alvin Lewis, and stop him and his lawyer from speaking to the media about the case.

Lewis was the driver of Tunechi‘s tour bus on the night when it was shot up by Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe. He is currently suing Stunna, Thug, Peewee, Cash Money Records, and Young Money over the incident, and believes that the shooting was “gang-related.”

According to The Blast, the judge has yet to rule and the case is currently on hold. Right now, Roscoe is behind bars after being sentenced to 10 years in jail, but the lawsuit is about to reopened after new evidenced surfaced, which could expose Birdman and Young Thug for having something to do with trying to kill Weezy!

Lil Wayne Wants Cash Money’s Lawsuit Against His Company Aspire Music Group Thrown Out

Lil Wayne Wants Cash Money Lawsuit Against His Company Aspire Music Group Thrown Out

According to The Blast, Lil Wayne and his music company Aspire Music Group filed documents at the end of October to the court requesting them to dismiss Cash Money Records‘ countersuit.

Aspire, which was co-founded by Tunechi and his former manager Cortez Bryant, have told the court that Cash Money only filed this lawsuit after Tune won his lawsuit against Birdman earlier this year even though the alleged fraud took place years ago. They even pointed out that the accusations from CM don’t make any sense as Wayne would have to participate in more acts that would end up harming him financially.

This lawsuit all began last year when Aspire Music Group sued Cash Money and Universal for not paying them their earnings owed from Drake‘s royalties. CM then counter-sued AMG and accused Weezy and Tez of creating this record label as a way to get richer by receiving a bigger share of Drizzy‘s royalties, as well as claimed the company has never conducted in any business other than helping the Canadian rapper get signed!

Birdman & Young Thug Could Be Charged With Trying To Kill Lil Wayne After New Evidence Surfaces In The Case

3 years ago, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe was found guilty of shooting at Lil Wayne‘s tour bus in Atlanta, Georgia and was served with a 20-year sentence (10 years in prison and 10 years on probation).

Now the Cobb County State Court is about to reopen the case after new evidence has surfaced, which could expose Birdman and Young Thug for having something to do with trying to kill Wayne. 12 minutes before the shooting took place, Thug had called Winfrey a total of 8 times and while Winfrey was in jail, Baby had called him to to say the following:

“Time for you to come out here and get this money nephew. You did everything you could do boss… it’s a eye-opener bruh, ya heard me. Strictly business, man.”

Before we find out in the next few weeks, you can watch footage detailing this latest update and hear the audio of Birdman‘s phone call, courtesy of WSB-TV, after the jump below. Do you think Baby and Thugger will be charged from this new evidence?

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:
