BHR Hollywood Reports.........New court documents filed in Lil Wayne's lawsuit against Cash Money CEO Bryan "Birdman" Williams say that Young Money artists Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga were not paid as promised, reports.

The documents say that Lil Wayne has obtained letters from Drake and Tyga's respective teams making the claims the artists were not compensated properly.

 Minaj's representatives say that her producers
were not sufficiently paid and that the responsibility falls to Cash Money, the parent company of Lil Wayne's Young Money label.

The amount of money at stake is substantial. Young Money alleges that it is owed a large chunk of a $100 million advance given to Cash Money by Universal.

 Birdman’s team responds that the money was in fact paid already, with $20 million going to Young Money in 2012, another $12 million for Wayne’s solo album, and another $70 million in advances.

Additionally, Cash Money claims that Wayne’s stable of artists was supposed to produce 21 albums over seven years, but in fact only contributed 13.

In January, Wayne filed a $51 million lawsuit against Birdman for his release from Cash Money.

Long story short—this litigation isn’t going away anytime soon.
