It used to be Like Father, Like Son for Birdman and Lil Wayne, but not anymore. The fallout between the two parties has gotten nasty at times and according to legal documents filed on behalf of a Mr. Weezy F. Baby, Birdman ripped off Wayne in a big way when it came to nine digit advance.
In documents obtained by TMZ, it’s being alleged that Universal Music Group advanced Birdman $100 million for a distribution deal. According to Wayne’s camp, that money was not fairly distributed and did not reflect the Young Money/Cash Money label partnership. He claims that roughly $70 million ($70 million!) was blazed through with Birdman saying the money was spent royalties, marketing and recording expenses. Lil Wayne wants to see the receipts to back this claim up. Y’know, as one does when you need to sort out where tens of millions of dollars have gone. So, uh, enjoy the endless legal wrangling that comes from that.
