“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,” Lil Wayne Tweeted.

Sources close to YMCMB camp told Dancehall HipHop that Roc Nation has reached out to Lil Wayne offering him a deal.

“Roc Nation execs reached out to Weezy but I don’t know the nature of the deal that they offered him or if he even accept anything,” the source told us.

“Weezy is still in a contract with Cash Money, so Birdman would have to released him from that contract before he can sign to another label,” the source added.

Last year during an interview with Hot 97 Breakfast Club, Jay Z revealed how he almost signed Lil Wayne to Roc-A-Fella Records in 2008.

“The truth is after I had a meeting with Wayne, I had a relationship with Baby, when I used to go to New Orleans I would meet up with him,” Hov said. “So, I felt it was only right to call him. I called him out of respect like ‘Yo, I was talking to Wayne. Just to let you know. Boom boom boom.’ So, after that I think we received a letter at our office for like torturous interference from a lawyer…And it all just went from there. I would rather lose that situation and do the right thing than the opposite. Cause I think I could have signed him. I could have signed him and then told him after. I did the right thing and I’m cool with that decision.”

Jay Z and Roc Nation was also rumored to be looking to sign Drake, but that also fell through the cracks.

The question now is will Lil Wayne sign to Jay Z’s Roc Nation label and become labelmates with the likes of Beyonce and Rihanna?

During one of his concerts last week, Lil Wayne also said he want to leave Cash Money.

Lil Wayne new album Tha Carter V was scheduled for release on December 9, but was once again delayed, and that angered the YMCMB rapper. That marks the third time the album has been delayed.

In his rant on Twitter, Lil Wayne says he want out of the label.

  1. Lil Wayne built Young Money, why would he sign with any label? That’s not logical to me. Why would he sign with Roc Nation, that’s where legends go to die. Jay-Z doesn’t want to nurture his competition. I’ll lose a lot of respect for Wayne if he signs with any label when he has created the most successful label at this time.

    • How cares what you. Think it’s like this if he not happy and they not trying to promote there biggest artist then he must move on so you can kick rocks also a lot of those guys that was on roc nation messed themselves up not Jay-Z j Cole still doing numbers

    • You sound stupid this would elevate Waynes career rather than hurt it! Just imagine Hov&Bey ‘Ye And Wayne the big3 for the Rocnation camp, then the soldiers under them: J.Cole Rihanna Nicki Minaj Drake Big Sean Pusha T, and Jay just added Fab to the team so like thats the most powerful rotation of artists under a label in a very long time if ever! it would change hip hop and music altogether. itll be better than ymcmb ever was! I hope Wayne comes on over to the Roc, and makes this happen

  2. Labels lining up for weezy …thats power!!

  3. Oh a “source” told y’all that huh? Ok lmao
