The ongoing feud between Cash Money head-honcho Birdman and Young Money boss Lil Wayne has a new twist to their problems. According to sources, Lil Wayne’s constant complaints about his Carter V album being shelved is just pure nonsense since Lil Wayne hasn’t even turned over the masters to the label. Here’s where it gets tricky; according to a clause in Lil Wayne’s contract, his Cash Money label is supposed to give Lil Wayne a cash advance of eight million dollars and then an additional two million dollars once the album is completed and delivered. The fact that Lil Wayne is claiming that he is owed millions and haven’t received even the advance money for his album, essentially puts everything on hold. TMZ is reporting the following:
In Wayne’s original lawsuit, he said he was owed an $8 million advance for the record, plus another $2 mil upon its completion. We’re told that amount, plus a few more million — for past Young Money album sales — would be the best shot for the record to see the light of day.
On September 3rd, Lil Wayne tweeted this cryped message to his millions of fans:
This is becoming an interesting chess game and unless someone decides to move their pawn across the board, a stalemate is surely the future of this relationship.
We have to ask the question, should Lil Wayne go ahead and turn over his masters to the label before receiving monies owed and trust that Birdman will do the right thing afterwards?
