Things might still be messy on the legal front for Lil Wayne, but TWO new releases are apparently on the way.
Onstage at his gig in Phoenix over the weekend, Weezy F. Baby, who also recently announced that he has a reality TV show on the way, promised his loyal but long-suffering fans that good things were around the corner – and addressed some less positive matters too, like his battle with Cash Money Records and its CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams.
“Before I go any further, I want y’all to know I got two new albums coming y’all way,” he told his audience, before elaborating on the long-term beef. “Fuck the Birdman. Fuck Cash Money. I’m going through a lot of bullshit right now. These n*ggas got me in bars right now. They don’t want to see me make good music. I don’t know what the fuck’s going on, but fuck them n*ggas. And I just want you to know if anything, if you thought that for any second I gave a fuck about it, I can’t because I got people like y’all that’s still supporting me.”
Weezy has been locked in a contentious lawsuit with Birdman and Cash Money Records for some time now. Way back in 2014, he took to Twitter to denounce the label, blaming it & Birdman for delaying the release of his album Tha Carter V. In a bizarre twist, last December it was reported that Wayne was being sued by his own lawyers.
Lil Wayne became a part-owner of TIDAL in 2015, releasing The Free Weezy Album via the controversial platform last April. Along with having his fraught album Tha Carter V ready for release, he also hinted in 2014 that he was working on another release entitled Da Other Album.
