Report: Lil Wayne to Sue Birdman for $8 Million

Cash Money drama heats up over advance funds for Tha Carter V.

Published January 24, 2015

The feud at Cash Money between Lil Wayne and Birdman has just reached new heights. Word is, Lil Tunechi is now set to sue his mentor.

According to TMZ, the two hip hop heavyweights tried to come to an agreement earlier this week to no avail. Since no compromise was made, Weezy is now seeking legal action, requesting that a judge declare him free of Cash Money and Birdman's control. He further claims that the "Tapout" rapper and business mogul has breached their contract by withholding the release of Tha Carter V.

Apparently, Wayne believes he's owed $8 million for the upcoming album, as it was supposed to be an advance.

Birdman, reports the site's source, continues to stand by his statement that the LP will be released "in due time," refusing to give a concrete release date.
