Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne has a big reason for stunting like his daddy again. The hip-hop heavyweight has reportedly come to terms with a major settlement from Birdman and Cash Money Records following a publicized royalties feud.
According to a new report, Wayne recently low-key banked some serious cash in his record label war.
According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wayne’s attorney, Howard King, filed a notice with the court on May 23 that all sides are ready to dismiss the lawsuit. Our sources say Universal wrote a big check to settle the suit and none of the money came from Birdman. As for the amount, we’re told it is “well over $10 million.” We are told that Universal was comfortable with the massive payment because they believe they will recoup the profits from Drake and Nicki Minaj going forward — a major part of what Wayne was suing over.

A few weeks ago, buzz developed about Wayne and his one-time Cash Money foe Birdman hanging out together in South Beach.
Last night, Lil Wayne attended Birdman‘s Before Anythang official album release party at Studio 23 venue in Miami, Florida. Once again while at the event, Weezy, Baby and Mack Maine took a couple of photos together, which you would think means there is no problems between them. (Lil Wayne HQ)
Pics from the epic hip-hop moment almost immediately scattered online.
Earlier this year, Birdman promised fans would finally hear Wayne’s long-delayed Tha Carter V album before 2019.
“He is the best ever to me,” he said. “A lot of success comes from under his umbrella. I think it’s gonna be the biggest album of 2018, one of them. Without a doubt. It’s gonna be well worth the wait.” (Rap-Up)
