According to new reports, Wayne actually has the master recordings.
Sources connected to Birdman tell TMZ … Wayne’s threat to retire isn’t sitting well with the Cash Money honcho, who says the narrative he’s holding the now-mythical album hostage … is total BS. We’re told Weezy has the physical recording, and refuses to fork it over — so Birdman feels like his hands are tied. For Wayne’s part, we’re told he’d be happy to give up ‘Carter V’ … AFTER they work out the money. We’re also told Weezy will never leak it on the Internet because he ain’t giving it up for free.

This week, Lil Wayne publicly spoke out on his Cash Money battle.
“This was a tweet off of an argument,” Wayne said. “This was a tweet after an argument. Yeah, yeah, I’m a Libra. We’re known to, cliché, known to not hold back our emotions – we’re the only zodiac sign without a heart or soul – I was at my tipping point [because of] an argument over what’s going on. … This is business – when business is involved, I have a family, I have kids. I have a mother. We got bills.” (“Undisputed”)
A few days ago, Wayne publicly bashed Cash Money and longtime mentor Birdman with his new “Grateful” song.
