It was just a few days ago that Lil Wayne was on stage screaming out “F*** Cash Money” but now things appear to be all good between Weezy and his label.
Ten million dollars will change feelings real fast, and that’s possibly what happened because The Jasmine Brand is reporting that Tunechi has officially dropped his lawsuit against the label.
From the beginning, when Wayne sued for a $51 million payday, it was widely reported that Weezy would be willing to drop the lawsuit if he was simply paid the $10 million owed to him for recording Tha Carter V. While it’s unclear what made Wayne and his team suddenly drop the lawsuit, it’s assume the $10 million payout might be the reason but anything said right now is speculation. They could’ve agree to restructure his deal any number of ways which we may never be privy to.
It should be noted that Wayne had the lawsuit was dismissed “without prejudice,” which in layman’s terms means that he can re-file the suit at any time. Since it’s a civil case, Wayne can ask to have the case dismissed if there’s some sort of legal arrangement or settlement that took place out of court.
There are plenty of unanswered questions still though. Most of them, especially those relating to what caused the dismissal/settlement, will probably never be answered publicly. Others, like what happens with the Free Weezy Album, is Young Thug still dropping Tha Carter VI and are Wayne and Baby BF’s again will probably play themselves out for all to see. This could also mean that Carter V should see the light of day sooner than later now.

Update: Not so fast, Birdman. Karen Civil’s given word that the suit actually hasn’t been dropped. Instead, it’s been moved to New Orleans courts.
