On social media, it appears that Lil Wayne is spending time with his family and enjoying the holiday season. However, there are lawsuits from the past that have still not been resolved with former Cash Money Records musicians, and updates about Lil Wayne, Lil Twist, and Lil Chuckee’s record label lawsuits are fairly non-existent.
In the meantime, Lil Wayne appears to be moving on from his Cash Money days, and Music Times announced that tickets are on sale for his 2016 Dedication tour. On the other hand, few rappers can forgive Birdman and Cash Money Records for what they are doing to fellow musicians like Lil Wayne, and they are taking a stand.
Design and Trend wrote around December 10 that Pusha T adds to Rick Ross’ sentiments and stated the following in defense of Lil Wayne.
“If you steal something that’s just corny, and if you’re stealing it contractually that’s like the lowest form of a thief. It’s not even respectable in no way, shape or form. You’re not even thugging.”
Clearly, many fans and musicians are interested in the turnout of the Cash Money Records lawsuits, but the resolution of these cases seems fairly nonexistent.
The story of some of these lawsuits begins around 2010 when it seems like Lil Wayne, Lil Twist, and Lil Chuckee were inseparable. There were many instances where they were seen together, worked on music, and had other types of common interactions associated with being part of Cash Money Records.
Sadly, as previously reported by the Inquisitr, Lil Twist’s experience with Cash Money Records did not turn out very well. Instead, Lil Twist filed a lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money, and Lil Chuckee allegedly filed one for sexual abuse, according to Journaliscious.
Unfortunately, these issues were not resolved in public, and there is no online information about the sex abuse claim that Lil Chuckee filed against Cash Money Records.
In fact, there was little information online about Lil Twist between 2011 and March 2015. The main reason Lil Twist was back in the headlines during the latter of those four years was because he was allegedly involved in crimes where Justin Bieber was living.
In August 24, 2013, TMZ broke with the story that Justin Bieber kicked out Lil Twist and Lil Za from his Los Angeles “party pad” when jewelry was stolen. Following that, around January 14, 2014, Judiciary Report states that cocaine was found at Justin Bieber’s house — and Lil Za or Lil Twist were accused.
The case was occasionally mentioned in the press throughout 2014, and Lil Twist and Lil Za were called “bad influences” on Justin Bieber, according to the Daily Mail. Also during June 2014, Lil Wayne came out several times saying that he hated Justin Bieber’s manager, Scooter Braun, according to TMZ.
Around March 24, 2015, the charges came through for Lil Twist, and he was charged with six felonies, according to Cambio. Justin Bieber and Lil Twist also released a single in 2015 called “Intertwine,” showing they are still friends after all.
As the charges now stand, Lil Twist allegedly engaged in a number of crimes and could have received up to 25 years in jail. Obviously, that would have put a damper on his career as a pop star, and Lil Twist was not heard from until a December update by the Gazette Review.
Although it was mentioned that Lil Twist’s felony charges are still going through the court system — what is not discussed is what happened to Lil Chuckee’s lawsuit against Cash Money Records and Birdman.
Regardless, Lil Chuckee did an interview with Sway Universe on November 24, 2014, where he was confronted with the question of whether he was suing Birdman and Cash Money Records — and he denied it. Moreover, Lil Chuckee never mentioned what type of rumors he was refuting.
In context, it appears that Lil Chuckee is refuting rumors that he is suing Cash Money Records over leaving the label, and the rumors about sexual abuse are not implied.
What is implied by Lil Chuckee is a story that is too well-known among Cash Money Records. According to Hip Hop DX, Lil Chuckee leaving Cash Money Records because their deal fizzled is not uncommon.
Of course, Lil Wayne fans now know that this was the very premise of his argument for quitting Cash Money Records around December 9, 2014, when it became clear that Cash Money was not going to release Lil Wayne’s Tha Carter V, according to the Guardian.
So far, there are no recent updates from Lil Chuckee about new music or lawsuit follow-ups, but he is very active on Twitter. Lil Twist and Tyga were talking about wanting out of their contracts with Cash Money Records in mid-October, 2014, according to Vlad TV, but this case has not been recently updated online.
There is also no new information emerging about the lawsuit Lil Wayne filed against Cash Money Records in January 2015.
