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