Birdman and Lil Wayne made headlines last year with their ugly feud, which ended with both taking each other to court. However, following a shooting incident in which Lil Wayne was targeted, Birdman, who was named in an indictment as being indirectly involved, made a point to try and mend fences with the rapper, saying he loved his son. This is an excerpt of his statement during an interview with Angie Martinez of Power 105.
“That [The feud] was shocking to everybody. You never thought Wayne would be saying nothing negative about me in no lifetime. I never thought that could ever happen — for that man to open his mouth and say something negative about me… Sh** f***ed my day up. I love my son. He mean the world to me. For that man to say something negative about me, that affected my life. That’s my son at the end of the day. I’m going to support him.”
This is as reported by Pitchfork.
Their feud, which was brought about by the seemingly deliberate delay of the release of Weezy’s Tha Carter 5 album, seemed hard to simmer down. But recently, both seem to be in good terms, if a picture uploaded on Instagram by Birdman is anything to go by. It featured the Cash Money crew, which included Lil Wayne and Drake, and was supposedly taken at a reunion party in which Drake performed. Although Lil Wayne did not regram the photo or say anything about it, Mack Maine who was also in attendance reposted it with the caption, “United We Stand Divided We Fall!! #AubreyJustFinishedPerforming”.
That said, both Birdman and Lil Wayne have been named in a new lawsuit by Nightrydas LLC and Maurice Jordan, a music producer in relation to outstanding payments. According to Contact Music, they had entered into a non-exclusive agreement with the Young Money music executives to produce songs for them between the years 2011 and 2012. Apparently, they were to receive an advance of $15,000, and 4 percent of proceeds from the record sales, but according to Jordan, they only got partial payments and after some time, they stopped. Apparently, the parties are seeking an unspecified amount in compensation for breach of contract.
Currently, Lil Wayne and Birdman are facing a large number of lawsuits, with the latter’s strategy being said to be “blowing off creditors.” This is as reported by TMZ. In September last year, a producer going by the name DVLP took him to court for $200,000 in missed payments. Lil Wayne recently also made headlines after his own lawyers sued him for unpaid fees related to his 51 million dollar lawsuit against Birdman. Another team of lawyers also filed a lawsuit against him after he backtracked on his legal fees. They were defending him in a $2 million lawsuit by a private jet company. They were asking for $80,000. This is according to HotNewHipHop.
However, one of the lawyers involved in his $51 million lawsuit later on dropped it. The following is an excerpt of the report from HipHopDx.
“Michael Kramer has dropped his lawsuit against Lil Wayne… The lawyer, a member of Michael B. Kramer & Associates, filed new documents Thursday (December 24), that dismissed the case and all claims against Lil Wayne.
“Kramer filed a $375,000 lawsuit against the New Orleans rapper earlier this month, seeking payment for his legal services. Kramer assisted Lil Wayne in his $51 million lawsuit against Birdman.”
