Rapper Lil Wayne hasn’t kept his frustration with longtime label Cash Money a secret. Wayne became so fed up with the delayed release of his anticipated album The Carter V, he took the issue to court, only to later drop the suit. Now, it’s being reported that Wayne is still planning to refile the $51 million lawsuit – only this time it will be in his home base of New Orleans.
The release of The Carter V album has been delayed for months now. While the album has been in limbo, Wayne set Twitter on fire by tweeting his anger about the stalled project.
The lawsuit Wayne is filing not only asks for unpaid advances he claims he’s owed, but also requests a percentage of profits from both Nicki Minaj and Drake, whom he discovered and signed.
Wayne’s former partner Birdman currently heads up the label and the two shared a close friendship leading up to the Cash Money rift. Wayne is not the first artist to jump the Cash Money ship. Rapper Tyga also claimed his creativity was being imprisonment by the beauocracy over at the label and that he planned to move forward independently.
