TMZ was the first to report that Lil Wayne could be heading to court. But now sources connected to the situation are telling Dancehall HipHop that a legal battle is looming between Weezy and Cash Money.
“There are a lot of things going on in the label that upset Weezy and I can’t go into the specifics but he is serious about leaving,” a source close to the YMCMB rapper told Dancehall HipHop.
“He has had meetings with his lawyers who are prepared to file court documents if necessary to get Tha Carter V release and to get him (Lil Wayne) out the contract,” the source added.
There are already talks that Jay Z is interested in signing Lil Wayne to Roc Nation. But his Cash Money contract is a major roadblock that they will have to overcome.
Birdman has also expressed that he will be going to court if necessary to keep Lil Wayne at the label.
We are watching this closely as things played out.
