While it was previously reported that the Sorry 4 The Wait 2 rapper was originally suing Baby and his label Cash Money for $8 million, Weezy is now asking to end his contract with the label, and filed a lawsuit for $51 million.
According to the lawsuit, obtained by TMZ, Wayne says Birdman and company violated the deal by withholding tens of millions of dollars Cash Money owes him for his long-delayed album, “Tha Carter V.”
Wayne claims because Cash Money is refusing to pay, he’s entitled to walk.
But Lil Wayne wants more than just a declaration of freedom. He’s suing for $51 MILLION.
The site also reports from sources that Weezy is willing to let Birdman release Carter V if he gets paid the original $8 million advanced he was owed when he started recording in December 2013, and the $2 million he would receive for completing it.
We hope these two can work things out peacefully, for the sake of their loyal Cash Money fans.
