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.

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!

Lil Wayne Wants To Know What Birdman Spent $70 Million From Their Universal Check On & Why He Let Tyga Go

Lil Wayne Wants To Know What Birdman Spent 70 Million Of Their Universal Check On & Why He Let Tyga Go

According to TMZ who have obtained the legal documents for the ongoing Lil Wayne vs. Birdman court case, Wayne wants to know how Baby has spent $70 million that they were supposed to share as partners in their record labels Cash Money and Young Money.

Tunechi is arguing that Universal Music Group gave Birdman an advanced $100 million check for a distribution deal, but Tune didn’t see much of that money. He also wants to see proof Baby has spent around $70 million on royalties, recording and marketing expenses like he says he has.

Birdman‘s team have handed Wayne‘s team over 22,000 pages of documents to read through, which is of course a big reason as to why the lawsuit is taking a long time. However, Weezy‘s camp are saying that none of the pages include details on how the $70 million was spent.

TMZ are now reporting that Mr. Carter is annoyed at Baby for letting Tyga out of his Young Money contract with no discussion. If you didn’t already know, Ty has now signed to Kanye West’s G.O.O.D. Music record label!
