Birdman and Lil Wayne’s drama continues to play out, the YMCMB boss is currently suing Jay Z and Tidal for streaming Wayne’s ‘Free Weezy Album’ exclusively on the service.
TMZ reports, newly filed court documents show Birdman is gunning after Jay Z and Tidal for $50 million, maintaining that they own all exclusive rights to Wayne’s music and thus, making all Tidal arrangements illegal. The lawsuit states that Tidal claims Cash Money doesn’t have that exclusive ownership, and that Wayne gave the go-ahead to exclusively stream his music in return for part ownership in Tidal.
The lawsuit marks out specific portions of Wayne’s Cash Money contract, which he is currently trying to get out of, where it states that he doesn’t have the power to license his music to anyone else.
Wayne’s Free Weezy Album dropped exclusively on Tidal earlier this month following Wayne’s official announcement that he had inked a deal for the project with Jay and the company. All of this is right on the heels of an official indictment out of Atlanta that claims Birdman and Young Thug, are responsible for drugs and weapons violations,plus plots to kill Wayne.
