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

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?

A Settlement Has Been Reached For Lil Wayne Refusing To Go Through Security At A South Carolina Concert

A Settlement Has Been Reached In The Lawsuit For Lil Wayne Refusing To Go Through Security At A South Carolina Concert

Remember when Lil Wayne was due to headline the 2nd annual Fall Ball at the Colonial Life Arena in Columbia, South Carolina last year and he ended up not performing because he didn’t want to be searched or go through a metal detector to enter the arena?

Well, the court battle between Wayne and the concert promoters All For One is finally over after a settlement was reached, which cannot be released to the public. According to The Post and Courier newspaper, the promoters wanted Weezy to pay back the $65,000 advance he was given out of his $110,000 payment to perform for 40 minutes and to pay their legal costs.

Man Who Allegedly Shot Up Lil Wayne’s Tour Bus Has Had His 20-Year Sentence Overturned

Man Who Allegedly Shot Up Lil Wayne Tour Bus Has Had His 20-Year Sentence Overturned

Back in 2015, Jimmy Carlton Winfrey aka Peewee Roscoe pleaded guilty to the shooting at Lil Wayne‘s tour bus outside of Compound nightclub in Atlanta, Georgia on April 25th.

Peewee was served with a 20-year sentence (10 years in prison and 10 years on probation), but according to a new report by the Atlanta-Journal Constitution, he has had his sentence overturned.

The good friend of T.I., Birdman and Young Thug appealed his sentence in February this year by claiming the Cobb County judge, Mary Staley Clark, “pushed” him into accepting a plea deal that he had previously declined by allegedly threatening him with a harder sentence.

Winfrey will now remain locked up behind bars while his case goes back to the Cobb County State Court to start over again!

Lil Wayne Sued For Hate Crime Against A White Nightclub Bouncer, Wants Lawsuit Dismissed

Lil Wayne Sued For Hate Crime Against A White Nightclub Bouncer, Wants Lawsuit Dismissed

It looks like Lil Wayne has another legal issue he has to deal with as The Blast, who first broke the news Wayne had reached a settlement with his record labels, have obtained new court documents that show he is being accused of committing a hate crime.

Last year in June, a white security guard named Andrew Nunemacher was working on the door of Hyde nightclub, which is where Tunechi was hosting his BET Awards after-party, and accused Tune of punching him and throwing a glass of alcohol into his face while saying: “fuck you white boy”.

Andrew is in court arguing that these words prove the assault was a hate crime and it was driven by his “Caucasian ancestry and descent.” However, Weezy is denying that he committed a hate crime and claims he never even assaulted the nightclub bouncer.

Mr. Carter says he acted in a “careful” and “reasonable” manner, as well as that Nunemacher knew all about the potential risks of his job when he took it. He is also arguing that any of the security guard’s alleged injuries are because of self-defense and are due to his own carelessness.

The nightclub bouncer is suing Lil Wayne, Young Money, and the nightclub for assault, as well as wants a $25,000 civil penalty added for Wayne‘s alleged hate crime. Even though the court case is still on going, Weezy wants it dismissed completely!

Lil Wayne’s Lawyer Confirms He Is Now A Free Independent Artist Who Owns All His Rights

Lil Wayne's Lawyer Confirms He Is Now A Free Independent Artist Who Owns All His Rights

First thing’s first, I want to give a huge shout out to all of the real fans who have stuck with Lil Wayne as he has gone through this situation that felt never-ending with his record labels!

After we first heard about Wayne winning his legal battle with Universal and Cash Money Records a few days ago, Mr. Carter‘s attorney Ron Sweeney has given a statement to Billboard about the case:

“Per our settlement agreement, the matter has been amicably resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. In terms of the particulars, we’re prohibited legally from saying anything further. I can say that my client is happy. He is his own man, a man that owns his assets, his music and himself. At some point, Wayne will let his fans know what’s going to happen next.”

This confirms that Weezy has reached a settlement with Cash Money, which means he is now a free independent artist who owns his rights again (but he is still cool with Birdman). However, the lawsuit is not fully closed yet.

If you didn’t already know, Sweeney has been Tunechi‘s main lawyer for 13 years and he hired Howard King to litigate this case against Universal and CM. I guess we now just have to wait for Tune to make an announcement on what we can expect next from him! Maybe he will say something later today at Summer Jam?

Lil Wayne Emerges Victorious In His Lawsuit Against Birdman, Cash Money & Universal?

Lil Wayne Emerges Victorious In His Lawsuit Against Birdman, Cash Money & Universal

According to The Blast, Lil Wayne has emerged triumphant in his ongoing case with Birdman, Cash Money Records, and Universal Music Group after they say they have obtained the court documents.

The rival website to TMZ reveal Howard King, who is Wayne‘s attorney, filed a notice with the court on May 23rd saying all parties have come to an agreement and are ready to be done with the lawsuit.

Sources tell them that Universal wrote Tunechi a huge check for “well over $10 million” to settle the case and none of the money came from Birdman or CMR.

They also added that Universal were comfortable paying Tune the money, because they believe they will make it all back from Drake and Nicki Minaj profits in the future.

If these court documents are legit then Weezy should now officially be off Cash Money Records and Tha Carter V will be free to drop on Universal!
