Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne might possibly have the last laugh when his Cash Money feud smoke clears. Music executive James Prince has revealed his intent to help Weezy F. Baby prevail financially.
According to reports, the iconic Rap-A-Lot Records head is giving his support to Team Weezy.
He tells TMZ, “Where [Wayne] is weak, I am strong. He has gained an ally, and together we will get back all money owed to him and my son off the Drake albums.”
If you didn’t know … his son, Jas Prince, discovered Drake and set him up with Weezy and Young Money. James adds, “I witnessed the hard work that went into Drake’s career and for Cash Money to try and take something that isn’t theirs to take, does not sit well with me and family around the world.” (TMZ)
This week, Wayne responded to backlash he received for discussing his YMCMB issues on Fox Sports 1’s “Undisputed” sports show.
Earlier in the 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”)
According to new reports, Wayne actually has the master recordings to his long-awaited Tha Carter V album.
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. (TMZ)
