According to multiple sources Lil’ Wayne has been released from his contract with Birdman’s Cash Money Records and will finally be able to release his “Carter V” album. The ruling came down on May 23rd by a judge who was hearing the case.
Wayne initially sued Baby and Cash Money for $51 million back in 2014 for royalties that he never received and walked away with “well over $10 million). As part of the settlement between the two parties Wayne was officially released from his contractual obligation with Cash Money where he had been signed since 1991.
Credit to Wayne, though, he’s kept busy these last few years by releasing a prison memoir, putting out more clothing lines and dropping several music projects, including last year’s Dedication 6. But there’s only one Wayne record we really want to hear, and fingers crossed, we’re finally about to get it.
