Lil Wayne didn’t do himself any favors when he told the world he wants off Cash Money Records. Now Cash Money founder, and Weezy’s “father,” Bryan “Baby” Williams aka Birdman, is offended and is vowing not to let Weezy out of his recording contract.
Sources close to Birdman tell us … he’s deeply offended by Weezy’s public rants … claiming Birdman has tried to derail his career by refusing to release his new album. Weezy didn’t mince words, tweeting, “I want off this label and nothing to do with these people.”
Birdman is unmoved and vows to duke it out in court if necessary, because a contract is a contract.
As for the delay in dropping the album, we’re told Birdman says there’s lots of administrative work that goes into releasing a record, and Weezy is just a rapper, not a businessman, so what does he know?
Birdman still intends to release the album, but on his time, not Weezy’s.
Sources tell Hip-Hop Wired that these type of squabbles are nothing new. However, they were usually handled behind the scenes.
