Lil Wayne Ups The Ante: Suing Cash Money For $51 Million

The bad blood between Lil Wayne and Cash Money seems to be ballooning, along with the amount Wayne seeks to get.

The New Orleans-raised label has had a major falling out over the failure or unwillingness to release Wayne’s new album.

Wayne has dropped a lawsuit to the tune of $51 million.

He also declared that he is legally the one that jointly owns music works and copyrights by Nicki Minaj and Drake, as well as others.

For Tha Carter V to drop, Lil Wayne would be contractually obligated to an $8 million advance and another $2 when the album was completed, according to a report from TMZ.

Wayne says he has received nothing, even though Cash Money allegedly has the album.
