Birdman Reportedly Blocks Lil Wayne From Nicki Minaj & Drake’s Profit!
Lil Wayne isn’t tired of his legal battle with Birdman and won’t rest until he is paid the money he says the mogul owes him!
After suing the power player’s Cash Money music group for $51 million, Wayne then set his sights on its parent label Universal Music Group by seeking $40 million they owe him for his contributions to the business.
Today, he believes Birdman and UMG execs were in cahoots, joining forces to ensure he didn’t access money generated by his artists Drake and Nicki Minaj.
Wayne’s lawyer, Howard King, filed docs saying the Cash Money honcho and Universal backdated a deal to make it look like it was signed BEFORE Young Money’s deal ran out. In docs obtained by TMZ, Wayne’s camp says Universal knew that backdating the deals would screw Lil Wayne out of profits from Young Money and the artists signed under his label.
