Oh-oh, there’s some family drama brewing…music family drama at least.
Young Money Head, Lil Wayne has filed a lawsuit against his record label, Cash Money claiming they owe him millions of dollars for his upcoming album Tha Carter V.
It seems Wayne was due to receive $8 million in advance of recording the album, which he started in December 2013, and then another $2 million when he finished the record last year.
He insists he hasn’t received his moola.
Tha Carter V, which was initially due to be released last May was delayed until December 2014, but has still not released.
Wayne is looking to leave the record label and intends to declare that he is the joint copyright holder for everything on Young Money, an imprint of Cash Money.
On a Twitter rant last month, the 32-year-old hitmaker took a hit at fellow rapper and longtime ‘family,’ CEO of Cash Money, Birdman (aka Baby),
“To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won’t and hasn’t been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it…I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain’t that easy…I am a prisoner and so is my creativity Again…”
