Gossip : Lil Wayne Praises Rap-A-Lot; Continues To Bash Cash Money Records
Lil Wayne is eager to take his talents to Houston, Texas once his legal battle with his Cash Money Records boss Bryan ‘Birdman’ Williams is over.
Wayne has been fighting to void his recording contract with his former mentor since the start of 2015, when he filed a $51 million lawsuit accusing Birdman of withholding money allegedly owed to him for his long-delayed album Tha Carter V.
The “Lollipop” hitmaker has been blasting the rap mogul during live shows ever since, and he continued to slam his label boss on Sunday (September 4), when he joined his protege Drake onstage in Houston, Texas.
After performing tracks including “A Milli” and “We Be Steady Mobbin’,” Wayne made it clear his ongoing court battle with Cash Money was behind his recent Twitter rant, in which he hinted at his retirement, after admitting he had been left “defenseless” and “mentally defeated”.
He then suggested he would love to sign with legendary label Rap-A-Lot Records, founded by J. Prince, the father of producer Jas Prince, who is credited with discovering Drake and bringing him to Wayne’s attention at his Young Money Entertainment imprint.
“Houston, Texas, before I leave y’all I want to say I know I’ll always have a home at Rap-A-Lot Records, and y’all know they’re f##king me over right now,” Wayne told the audience. “So, before I go, I leave you with these kinds words: F##k Cash Money.”
Drake showed his support for Wayne after the show when he took to Instagram to write: “The boss @liltunechi (Wayne). We are fighting until you get yours. Freedom to drop music and peace of mind…”
“I know you gave me a shot and all I can ever do with the rest of my life is return the favor,” he added, declaring, “YOUNG MONEY FOREVER.”
