Lil Wayne has turned his back on Cash Money Records and pledged to only rep Young Money from here on out. His boss, Birdman, could care less what the Grammy Award-winning rapper wants. He has no intention of letting Weezy out of his contract.
As we previously reported, the rift started because Baby did not release Wayne’s Tha Carter V album on December 9, as expected. At this point there is no release date for the project causing Wayne to have a rare public meltdown expressing his desire to leave Cash Money and get away from Birdman.
Sources close to Birdman tell TMZ that Wayne has no idea how much work it takes behind the scenes to launch an album. Tha Carter V will be released at some point, but only when the Cash Money CEO feels the time is right.
Those same sources say Wayne will not get out of his contract without a fight. Baby believes the contract is legally binding as is prepared to go to court to uphold it.
