Birdman Shows Love To Lil Wayne Despite Ongoing Rift
(AllHipHop News) CMR co-founder Birdman added a “Throwback Thursday” post on Instagram featuring a photo of him and Wayne.
He captioned the pic, “Real Rap #gangsta music#cashmoneymillionaires.”
Wayne is still in the middle of a legal conflict with Birdman and Cash Money Records over unpaid money and the delay of his Tha Carter V album.
In March, Weezy told a crowd at the SXSW Festival he was “going through some bullsh-t with my motherf-cking career and n-ggas is trying to steer my career without letting me do or say a damn thing.”
Rumors suggest Jay and Birdman have been competing for Wayne’s recording allegiance for over a decade, dating back to the New Orleans rapper nearly signing to the Roc around 2005.
Two years ago Cash Money sued the Jay Z led Tidal streaming service for exclusively debuting Wayne’s Free Weezy Album on the platform.
Lil Wayne is now one of the artist-owners of Tidal.
