In 2009, Lil Wayne announced that Omarion was taking his talents to Young Money.
Four months later, it was announced Omarion and Young Money had split for "business reasons."
In an interview with Vlad TV, Omarion discussed those "business reasons". [Jump to 3:30]
"I was looking to find a new home, so to speak, more of partnership aspect to my business. So I signed a deal with Young Money, and it was an exciting thing. Basically, long story short, what happened was when I signed my deal I was supposed to get my advance. And the lawyers were talking, and basically, upon signing you're supposed to get the advance in a specific time. Within that time, my check didn't come. That raised a lot of questions for me. What kind of business was being done? So, when my check didn't come, I said I'm out. Me and Wayne actually got into it about that. We had a back-and-forth conversation. Me, him and Mack Maine.
"The deal was signed," he reiterated. "And I was like yo, wait a minute where's the check, fam. And they're like 'Oh well, Wayne needs to sign off on it. I was like OK just call Wayne. Call Wayne and he's doing something. WTF? I'm like, no fam, I can't do this."
At the time of the breakup, there was drama about a track Omarion leaked with Wayne on it.
Do you think this is a like father, like son situation?
