Cash Money Records, the label co-owned by brothers Bryan “Birdman” Williams and Ronald “Slim” Williams, has been hit with a new lawsuit.
It looks like the contentious and protracted contract negotiations with Birdman and Cash Money Records have taken a heavy toll on Lil Wayne.
Apple Music and Birdman have reportedly inked a deal for a documentary about Cash Money Records, according to a report fromBillboard. “Welcome to the fam [Birdman],” wrote Larry Jackson, Apple Music’s head of content, on Instagram. “Tough negotiator. Much respeck.” Although original reports indicated that the entire label would be entering into some type of exclusive streaming deal with Apple Music, several sources confirmed to Billboard that the “power move” was simply a one-off documentary about Birdman and Cash Money.
The latest wrinkle in Lil Wayne‘s legal battle with Birdman and Cash Money Records now includes documents where Weezy is trying out oust Birdman from his involvement in Young Money because of his mismanagement of the company.
