Birdman finally pays Lil Wayne. The Blast reported that Lil Wayne was victorious in a recent settlement against his Mentor, father figure and ex-friend, Birdman. According to court documents Lil Wayne will be getting more than $10 million in the settlement. Originally, Wayne sued Cash Money Records, to have his record deal voided. Wayne accused the label of owing him tens of millions of dollars including an $8 million advance for Tha Carter V project. In addition to owing Wayne for the album the label never paid the $2 million for the completion of the album.
The papers were reportedly filed on May 23, 2018. Both parties were ready to settle. Wayne is now a free artist. The album, Carter V can be released.
The huge beef between the two mega rap stars started back in 2014. Wayne put Birdman on blast for failing to pay him for Carter V album.
