Lil Wayne's $50 million lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money is entering into its fourth year.
In a filing made on February 21, Wayne's legal team is accusing Cash Money of only pretending to hand over all the documents they have been required to by the court.
They point out that even though Cash Money has made over $200 million, it hasn't provided any accounting, bank or tax records in the case.
In particular, Wayne is interested in financial information on his Young Money artists Drake and Nicki Minaj.
Reports The Blast:
Wayne says the information Cash Money is refusing to turn over includes documents relating to Nicki Minaj and Drake. He’s demanded all records pertaining to Nicki and the label since 2011. The label claimed they have no documents, but Wayne says that’s impossible due to Nicki releasing albums with the company since 2011. Wayne wants information pertaining to Cash Money’s deals with Drake, but again they claim to have no documents available.
Weezy’s motion also accuses Cash Money of not turning over records of payments the label made to Birdman and his brother, Ronald Williams. Further, he says they refuse to hand over all tax returns from 2011. He says, “Unless Cash Money admits to criminal failure to file tax returns for 2011 to present, Cash Money must produce these returns.”
The judge has yet to rule on the motion.
As for Birdman, he claims that he's going to release Tha Carter V this year. So that should be interesting.
