It's about time!!
The historic feud between Lil Wayne, Birdman and Cash Money Records has been going on for two years now. It publicly began on December 4, 2014, after multiple delays in the release of Lil Wayne’s long-awaited 11th solo studio album, Tha Carter V. Lil Wayne took to Twitter discuss his problems with the label’s boss, Birdman, and his sole recording home, Cash Money Records.
“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,” he wrote, before continuing, “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.”
Two years and a law suit later, the famed rapper seems completely defeated and ready to back down from the fight. Friends, fellow rappers, and colleges are heading to social media to express their support of Young Tuneche and their disappointment in the label.
Defenseless and Defeated
The Lil Wayne vs. Birdman beef is about to hit its two year anniversary come December. Since the delay of his 11th studio record in 2014, Lil Wayne has sued Birdman’s recording company, Cash Money Records, for a cool 51 million dollars and has been dissing the label and his former father figure any chance he gets.
It seems like Young Weezy is finally stepping away from the fight however. This weekend, he sent out the tweet reading, “I AM NOW DEFENSELESS AND mentally DEFEATED & I leave gracefully and thankful I luh my fanz but I’m dun. Ain’t lookin for sympathy, just serenity.”
Fuck Cash Money
Of course this doesn’t mean that Dr. Carter will stop preaching his message against the recording company. On Sunday night, Drake brought out his mentor on stage to perform “A Milli.” Following the performance, Lil Wayne spoke to the crowd saying, “Houston, Texas, before I leave y’all, I want to say I know I’ll always have a home at Rap-A-Lot Records, and y’all know they’re fucking me over right now. So before I go, I leave you with these kinds words: Fuck Cash Money.”
We Are Fighting
Even though Drake is still under contract with the Cash Money, he chose his side with Young Tune in a post on Instagram. It read:
The boss @liltunechi. We are fighting until you get yours. Freedom to drop music and peace of mind. I don’t know what these other weirdos are on with all the side talks but I know you gave me a shot and all I can ever do with the rest of my life is return the favor. YOUNG MONEY FOREVER
Other artists are also pledging their support to the rapper.
