It’s not a done deal yet, but Lil Wayne and Birdman are close to ending their year long conflict. If that happens Young Money Records President, Mack Maine, will deserve a lot of the credit.
TMZ reports that Mack set up a phone call between the “father and son,” so they could begin talks to hammer out their personal and business differences.
The conversation went well enough to bring the two together to celebrate New Year’s Eve along with Mack, Drake and 2 Chainz.
As you have probably guessed by now, money is at the root of the problem.
In January 2015, Weezy filed a $51 million breach of contract lawsuit against Baby and Cash Money Records.
The suit claims that Cash Money violated terms of the agreement by not paying Wayne an $8 million advance when he began recording “Tha Carter V” in December 2013, failing to pay the rapper an additional $2 million once the album was completed, then refusing to release it.
Both parties want to work things out, however Wayne is waiting for everything to be settled to his satisfaction before dropping the suit.
