(AllHipHop News) Bryan “Birdman” Williams may have told Power 105’s Angie Martinez he was not involved in the shooting that left Lil Wayne’s tour bus riddled with bullets, but the man currently in custody for the crime reportedly says the Cash Money Records head played a role in the incident.

Jimmy Winfrey claims in new court docs he shouldn’t be singled out for the crime, when “[Birdman’s] financial dispute with [Lil Wayne] is what ultimately led to the shooting.”
So, Winfrey argues, “[Birdman] should be held liable as a party to the crime.” He’s not specifically saying Birdman ordered the hit, but essentially that’s what he’s saying.
Winfrey (aka PeeWee Roscoe) was employed as Atlanta rapper Young Thug’s road manager. A Cobb County, Georgia indictment in the Winfrey case named both Thug and Birdman as possible co-conspirators in a plot to kill Wayne.
The Young Money leader has been trying to break from Birdman’s CMR imprint. He later sued the company for unpaid royalties and album advances. Wayne was also involved in a very public feud with Thug earlier this year.
Neither Birdman nor Young Thug have been formally charged in connection to the tour bus shooting in Atlanta. Last week Birdman denied he would ever try to harm the man he refers to as his “son.”
“That’s like the craziest sh*t I ever heard in my life,” said Birdman about the allegations he tried to have Wayne murdered. “I’m passionate about my family, my kids, and my life. Nothing means more to me.”
