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 Claims Lil Wayne & Cortez Bryant Have Been Plotting With Their Lawyer To Earn A Bigger Share Of Drake’s Profits

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:

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 Former Lawyers In His Private Jet Case Have Dropped Their Lawsuit Against Him

According to theJasmineBRAND, Lil Wayne‘s former lawyers who represented him in the private jet leasing company case, which he lost, dropped their lawsuit against him earlier this month on August 11th.

In the new court documents, it says that the lawyers are dismissing the full lawsuit forever with no chance of it being refiled in the future, so more than likely Tunechi has paid the payments he owed!

Lil Wayne Moves $51 Million Lawsuit Against Birdman & Cash Money Records To New Orleans

Lil Wayne Has Withdrawn His 51 Million Lawsuit Against Birdman & Cash Money

According to theJasmineBRAND, Lil Wayne has dropped his lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money Records. If you recall, Weezy originally filed a lawsuit earlier this year claiming that he is owed $51 million and wants himself and his Young Money artists off Cash Money, because Baby never pays him or his artists the money that they are owed and because he refuses to release Tha Carter V.

The lawsuit was dropped on April 6th, which you would think means that Tunechi and Birdman have reached a settlement outside of court. Even though the case has been dismissed, Tune can still re-file if he wanted to. Click here to read the court documents.

UPDATE: Karen Civil says that Mr. Carter is not withdrawing the case, but instead just moving it to New Orleans!

Judge Clears DJ Drama & Others In Cash Money Mixtape Lawsuit

Judge Clears DJ Drama & Others In Cash Money Mixtape Lawsuit

Citing a lack of a convincing legal argument, a New York federal judge has dismissed a lawsuit against DJ Drama and several others over claims they used the music of Cash Money Records‘ artists without compensation.

Hip hop fans had come to know Drama as a frequent collaborator of Cash Money super star Lil’ Wayne, but tensions with the label reportedly rose when the popular DJ began to make moves to push his product in retail stores instead of with street vendors.

After hearing both sides of the story, the judge threw the case out of court, saying Cash Money‘s lawyers neglected to provide a “valid legal claim against [the] defendants.”

“[The] plaintiff (Cash Money Records) had requested that the case be dismissed ‘without prejudice;’ which would have meant that Cash Money could try again,” Wallace Collins, an attorney for BCD Music Group, another party named in the case, told AllHipHop.com. “However, the judge agreed with our request that it be dismissed ‘with prejudice;’ which basically drives a stake through the heart of the action and puts the final nail in the coffin of this lawsuit; it’s over and done!”

Though their business dealings with each other seemed to be in disarray, Drama maintained from the beginning that there was no beef between himself and Wayne.

“The accusations against me are misplaced,” Drama stated. “This is not a case of Lil Wayne vs. DJ Drama. Me and Wayne are good. I am confident that this matter will be resolved quickly without harming the relationships between myself, Wayne and Cash Money Records.”
