Lil Wayne & Birdman Reportedly Close To Settling Their Legal Issues


(AllHipHop News) For over a year, Lil Wayne and Birdman were involved in a very public feud that included Twitter rants, lawsuits, drink throwing, disses in songs, and alleged murder conspiracies. The estranged pair, that once referred to themselves as father and son, are reportedly on the verge of settling their differences.

It came as a shock to many observers when YMCMB’s Wayne, Birdman, and Drake were all seen together in a photo on New Year’s Eve. According to TMZ, the picture was a sign the Young Money leader and the Cash Money Records co-founder have spoken about reconciling.

YM executive Mack Maine apparently played a role in bringing the two New Orleans natives back together. Maine supposedly set up a phone conversation between Wayne and Birdman before they met face-to-face at they NYE party in Miami.

TMZ reports:

Our sources say both Wayne and Birdman have strong feelings about burying the hatchet. That said, we’re told Wayne will not move to dismiss his lawsuit unless and until they reach an agreement.

As for why they came together, we’re told Mack Maine has a lot of influence, especially with Wayne, and opened his mind to a settlement.

In late 2014, Wayne announced on Twitter that he wanted to leave Cash Money, because the company refused to release his Tha Carter V album. That was followed by the “Glory” rapper filing a $51 million lawsuit against his record label. Birdman later sued Tidal, which Wayne is a part owner, over the streaming service hosting Wayne’s Free Weezy Album.

  • From a business perspective, you settle, get your money and move on. That’s just business. But from a friendship perspective, you can never go back to the way it was (damn that sounds gay as sh*t when talking about two kissing ass men). If I were Birdman (thank God I’m not) I’d settle with Wayne and get to paying my debts. Although Wayne ain’t the God no more, he still has Nicki and Drake in his pockets. If I’m Wayne (thank God I’m not) I’d take the cake, release the album (which is probably garbage anyway) and still look beyond Cash Money. Because at the end of the day, you can’t trust that n*gga ever again.

      Realest shiiitt you ever wrote…. lol
      Brotha James Evans…….. That is real talk though, Wayne needs to get his paper and keep it moving……

      “can’t trust that n*gga ever again”???

      You couldn’t have ever trusted that nigga PERIOD!

      Good quotable though. Props due.

    • BRLA

      Bruh now you know good and well no Carter album has ever been garbage nigga said he worked harder on Carter 5 then any other Carter thats including Carter 2 and 3

  • Anthony Mason

    Wayne should retire from making albums and just do features. He is good at wave riding and doing verses over beats that essentially carry a song despite the vocals….

  • ilexx

    Booooo…. This is a fail!

    Anything involving a settlement with Birdman means you are getting fucked over.

  • Markus

    There’s a dude who was affiliated with Birdman in jail right now for trying to kill Wayne. On that note how they rekindle their relationship is a mystery. Or fantasy actually. If Wayne is smart he works toward a business separation that’s acceptable for both sides. Forgiving an attempted hit on my life would be a bit much for me.

    • Anthony Mason

      If someone made an attempt on my life like that I would have resorted to some serious machiavellian warfare. But that nigga kissed Birdman…

      If I was Wayne who has kids and knew my career was coming to a close I would be thinking night and day how to get the wolves off me and make sure they can’t hurt my family because they clearly want to harm me….

      Wayne never was really built like that though. He just put it in his raps but people still believe it…..

      Type of niggas to worry about are dudes like Gibbs. That nigga will take out a whole family tree and go to church afterwards….

  • Papi Peligro

    I’ll never forget Bird Man taking Angie Martinez on his 51 million dollar yacht to discuss how he’s ripping Lil Wayne. Can’t see how Lil Wayne can either. LEVELS TO DISRESPECT. Ninja you owe me money you act like I’m Ally Financial with a repo truck.

    • Casor_Greener

      with a fat stack of money in his hand. he was clowning wayne “come get ya money boi”. That;’s why I don’t respect any of these rap goons. “real recognize real”….ahahahahahahah sure they do…

  • Faceda59
