According to TMZ, Cash Money Records is suing Jay Z's Tidal streaming service for $50 million because of their recent partnership with Lil Wayne.
A few weeks ago, Weezy confused fans when he announced that he'd "just signed a deal with my motherf–king idol Jay Z," leading some to believe that he'd made things official with Hov's Roc Nation label. However, a source close to Wayne clarified to MTV News that he'd actually signed a deal with Tidal.
Either way, Birdman isn't happy.
Cash Money Records is suing Tidal for streaming songs from Wayne's most recent project, the Free Weezy Album, which dropped on Independence Day. They claim to exclusively own all rights to his music, and allege that Jay's company is making "a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling streaming service."
Tidal reportedly responded by saying that Wayne offered them the rights to stream his new music, in exchange for an ownership stake in the company. And, apparently, reps at Cash Money weren't impressed with the Free Weezy Album and the "tepid reviews" it received.
This news comes just few days after Birdman allegedly threw a drink on Lil Wayne during a performance at LIV nightclub in Miami.
Last year, Lil Wayne told MTV News that he'd always be a Jay Z fan, but his relationship with Birdman seems to be over for good.
