Lil Wayne just want his money and he will be quiet but so far nothing has been forthcoming from Birdman and Cash Money Records.
According to TMZ, Lil Wayne has filed a lawsuit for $51 million against Cash Money.
In his court documents, Lil Wayne argued that Birdman and other label execs withhold tens of millions of dollars from him for his new album Tha Carter V and that breached their contracts.
The New Orleans rapper says he is owed $10 million for Tha Carter V. $8 million of which was supposed to be an advance when he started recording the album in December 2013 and the $2 million balance was due when the album is completed.
Weezy says the album has been done but Birdman refused to release it and pay him his money.
Lil Wayne wants the judge to release him from the contract because the label breached it. But the problem is he is suing the label for $51 million.
In his legal docs Lil Wayne also says he is the joint copyright owner of all Young Money recordings which comprised of powerhouse rappers like Nicki Minaj and Drake.
