Lil Wayne Wins 8-Figure Settlement In Birdman Lawsuit, ‘Tha Carter V’ To Be Released By Universal

It looks like one of hip-hop’s longstanding feuds may be coming to an end, in court at least. It was reported by The Blast that Lil Wayne and Birdman have finally settled their legal issues in court today, and that Wayne may have walked away with an eight figure settlement.

According to the report, court documents show that Weezy and Baby came to a mutual settlement, with Universal paying Wayne upwards of $10 million and terminating his Cash Money contract. Tha Carter Vwill also reportedly be put out by Universal.

The pair’s legal drama has spilled out into Wayne’s on stage performances in the past, the Young Money rapper has called out Birdman for owing him money during shows numerous times. Wayne initially sued Cash Money Records to void his record deal for owing him tens of millions of dollars including advance money and bonuses for Tha Carter V.
