Lil Wayne Sells His Masters For More Than $100 Million

Lil Wayne Sold His Masters For More Than 100 Million

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne‘s former manager Ronald Sweeney has filed a lawsuit against the New Orleans rapper for over $20 million.

Ronald says Wayne hired him back in 2005 to help renegotiate his deal with Cash Money Records, which we know was also another lawsuit that finally got settled in 2018. However, the attorney claims he only got a few payments for his work and is now suing Weezy for the full cut.

In the suit that was filed by lawyer Ed McPherson, Ronald Sweeney also mentions he was asked by Lil Wayne to fire Cortez Bryant in 2018 over a conflict of interest in a legal dispute about who Drake was signed to. After doing so, Sweeney claims Tez and Mack Maine then conspired to cause a disagreement and anger between himself and Tunechi in which it ended with Tune firing the attorney.

The craziest part of this lawsuit is that Wayne sold his masters to Universal Music Group in June of this year for more than $100 million. Ronald Sweeney is using this to say Mr. Carter does have the money to pay him what he is owed.

Drake Recalls Always Wanting To Be As Important As Lil Wayne, Discusses His Work Ethic & Confirms He Is Not Directly Signed To Young Money Any More

For a surprise on Christmas Day, RapRadar and TIDAL released a brand new 2-hour interview with Drake that took place at his amazing new home in Toronto, Canada.

At the start of their conversation, Drizzy revealed that his goal at first was to be as important as his “mentor” Lil Wayne and that he does not think anyone in music before or after will ever have the same work ethic as what Wayne has.

After talking about Tunechi‘s “most insane work ethic”, the 6 God then recalled witnessing Tune record 4 – 5 classics in one night and seeing Kobe Bryant walk in on the tour bus during his very first meeting with Weezy to get an early release of Tha Carter III on an iPod.

Later on in the interview, Drake mentioned Lil Wayne will always be one of his favorite music artists, how a lot of things changed when he went to jail in 2010, how Wayne doesn’t listen to no other artists when he is in album mode, and confirmed he is not signed to Young Money any more.

You can check out Drizzy Drake‘s full conversation with Elliott Wilson and B. Dot in the video below, which also includes him speaking on Kanye West, Pusha T, Meek Mill, Serena Williams, Rihanna, Jennifer Lopez, Tyler The Creator, The Weeknd, Nicki Minaj, PARTYNEXTDOOR, Young Thug, and much more!
