News: Birdman Suing Tidal For $50 Million Over ‘Free Weezy Album’

July 16th, 2015 1 comment

As the legal battle continues between Lil Wayne and Birdman, news comes out now that Birdman is now suing Jay Z and Tidal for streaming Wayne’s Free Weezy Album exclusively on the service. TMZ is reporting that newly filed court documents show that Birdman is going after Jay and Tidal for $50 million, and they maintain that they own all of the exclusive rights to Wayne’s music and that the Tidal stream is illegal. In the lawsuit it is stated that Tidal claims Cash Money doesn’t have that exclusive ownership, and that Wayne gave them the go ahead to exclusively stream his music in return for part ownership in Tidal.

This all comes on top of the news of Birdman and Young Thug being named in the indictment for Lil Wayne’s tour bus shooting incident that claims the two may have conspired to kill Lil Wayne.
