(AllHipHop News) Over the last several weeks, Lil Wayne and Birdman have been photographed together on a couple of occasions. It appeared as if the year-long public dispute between the two New Orleans natives over royalties and album releases was on the verge of being resolved.
Despite the friendly encounters at nightclubs, Wayne is still moving forward with his lawsuit against Birdman and Cash Money Records, according to TMZ.
The website reports:
According to our Young Money sources, Wayne isn’t softening on his main demands — release “Tha Carter V” and cough up the millions he says Birdman owes him. The stakes are high … remember Weezy’s threat to take Drake and Nicki Minaj with him if he leaves Cash Money.
Further, we’re told there’s still NO talk of a settlement.
This development comes less than 3 weeks after TMZ also reported Wayne and Birdman had “strong feelings about burying the hatchet.” Young Money’s Mack Maine supposedly set up a phone conversation between the pair last month.
Before their reunion at a party in Miami on New Year’s Eve, Wayne and Birdman had not been seen together in public since Weezy announced in 2014 he wanted to leave Cash Money. The “Rich As F*ck” rapper sued the label for $51 million, including claims CMR owes Wayne a $10 million advance for turning in Tha Carter V.
