Published Apr 07, 2015It's been trouble in paradise for former bests and business-mates Lil Wayne and Brian "Birdman" Williams, as the former had taken the latter to task, filing a $51 million lawsuit. Now, however, that lawsuit has been withdrawn from court.
While details are scarce, The Jasmine Brand reports that Weezy withdrew his hefty suit from court yesterday (April 6), thereby suggesting that an out-of-court settlement was reached. The relevant legal documents are available here.
One thing that's almost certain is that the two didn't make up. During a performance in Florida last week, Wayne was quoted as yelling, "Fuck Cash Money" on stage.
The long-running feud stems from the fact that Lil Wayne's long-awaited Tha Carter V LP has been put on hold for so long. According to Wayne, the Cash Money label is holding him "prisoner."
The rapper released his Sorry for the Wait 2 mixtape earlier this year.
UPDATE: Reports have begun surfacing social media that the case was dropped so Lil Wayne could move it to New Orleans; however, it's unclear as of press time if that's indeed the case.
UPDATE 2: Lil Wayne's lawyer has told Rolling Stone has confirmed that the lawsuit is still happening and will now take place in New Orleans.
