After months of decrying Cash Money Records, and it’s co-owner Birdman, Lil Wayne has gotten extremely serious about his efforts to permanently sever the relationship with the label that has been his home for nearly 20 years. According to TMZ, Wayne has filed a lawsuit against Cash Money seeking $51 Million in damages. He’s also seeking declaration that he owns 50% of the copyrights of all Young Money recordings, which include those by Drake and Nicki Minaj.

According to the report, Wayne alleges in the lawsuit that Cash Money failed to pay him several million dollars in advances for his forthcoming album Tha Carter V, which may have sparked the dispute. Stay tuned as more details emerge.


If Lil Wayne leaves Cash Money and takes Young Money with him, do you think it will be the end of Cash Money Records?
