Lil Wayne Wants His Old Lyric Book Back, Sends Legal Threats To The Auction Company

Lil Wayne Wants His Old Lyric Book Back, Sends Legal Threats To The Auction Company

Just over a few weeks ago, we found out that an old notebook containing some of Lil Wayne‘s raps from the Hot Boys era is on the market for $250,000.00. The book, which includes lyrics written by Wayne from when he was 17-years-old, was found in a car that once belonged to Cash Money and it is now being auctioned off through Moments In Time.

According to TMZ, Tunechi has got his attorneys to file a warning letter to the auction company stating the fact that he is the rightful owner of the notepad and he has never agreed to the sale of his pad. In this letter, Tune‘s attorneys say he “never abandoned his notebook”, but just lost it, and even though he is glad it has now been found, he is not happy about it being sold. Weezy claims that the person who found it kept it a secret for all this time, because he wanted to wait for the right opportunity to make money from it.

The founder of Moments In Time, Gary Zimet, reveals that Lil Wayne will have to purchase the notepad from them if he does want it back. Wayne is reportedly fine with doing this, but he’s still threatening legal action if they don’t stop the sale to the public!

Lil Wayne’s Lost Handwritten Lyrics From 1999 On Sale For $250,000

Lil Wayne Lost Handwritten Lyrics From 1999 On Sale For $250,000

According to TMZ, a notebook containing some of Lil Wayne‘s raps from the Hot Boys era is on the market for $250,000.00

As any Tunechi fan should know, Tune does not write any of his verses down anymore since he recorded all of his written work on 10,000 Bars aka SQ7.

The person who owns the book, which includes lyrics from “I Feel” and “We On Fire“, came across it in 1999 (when Weezy was 17-years-old) from inside a car that used to belong to Cash Money Records.

You can view some pictures of this rare collection after the jump below. You will notice the notepad has a bit of water damage – this is because it was close to being destroyed during Hurricane Katrina back in 2005.

I must also add that reading this news reminds me exactly of the time when Wayne sold his Bugatti but forgot to take out the original version of his Tha Carter V album which then ended up being sold to Martin Shkreli!

Fat Joe Talks Witnessing Lil Wayne Come Up With His Verse On DJ Khaled We Takin Over & Says All New Rappers Owe Wayne A Favor

For episode 253 of Complex’s “Everyday Struggle” series, special guest Fat Joe sat down with DJ Akademiks and Nadeska to speak on various subjects that you can check out below.

At the 46:30 mark of their conversation, Joey Crack discussed Lil Wayne killing him on DJ Khaled’s “We Takin’ Over” single, called Wayne the “best rapper on earth at that time”, and told a story of what Weezy‘s recording process was like for his verse on “We Takin’ Over“, which included him standing in front of some big speakers at The Hit Factory and coming up with “I am the beast, feed me rappers or feed me beats” line.

Joe also mentioned that he owes Tunechi so much for teaching him how to work as rappers in his era don’t work as hard as the new millennium rappers and said that he used to always think he had to keep on working himself as he knew Tune would be somewhere working.

Later on in the interview at the 51:30 mark, Fat Joe shared his thoughts on Lil Wayne‘s current situation with Birdman, as well as pointed out that all these new rappers owe Wayne a favor as they all rap exactly like him, but not as good.

Joey Crack even revealed that he loves Mr. Carter as a person, called him a true friend (which is rare in the music industry), and says Weezy is very intelligent, plus misunderstood as people will look at him and see the dreads and tattoos, but that’s not who he truly is!
