Even though he dropped Sorry 4 the Wait 2 earlier this week, Lil Wayne wants Tha Carter V out as soon as possible and he’s still anxiously trying to get off Cash Money, as well. TMZ is reporting that Wayne is taking Birdman to court and will sue him for $51 Million (including $8 million in advances). Wayne claims that Birdman is violating their contract by withholding the release of Tha Carter V but, as we’ve reported earlier, Birdman claims he’ll release the album “in due time.”
CV has faced countless delays, and was supposed to drop on Oct. 28, until it was pushed back the day before. He’s been associated with Cash Money Records since the early ’90s, and has always maintained an extremely close relationship with Birdman over the years. His own label, Young Money Entertainment, is an imprint of Cash Money and back in April 2012, Wayne signed an additional four album deal with Cash Money, as well.
Documents have officially been filed by Lil Wayne, Young Money and his attorney in the United States District Court f New York on the morning of January 28, 2015. See them through the link below.
