It looks like the tension between Lil Wayne and Birdman is far from slowing down, and now the former friends and business associates have begun trading subliminal jabs online.
It all started back when Lil Wayne took to Twitter to publicly vent his frustrations with Baby and Cash Money for not releasing his new album. Since then, Wayne has decided to officially sue Birdman for $8 million, and he’s gone on to release his latest mixtape, Sorry 4 the Wait 2. Weezy decided to celebrate the release of his latest mixtape yesterday, January 25th, at the Versace Mansion. Ironically enough, Birdman and Young Thug decided to host a party of their own at LIV on the same night.
Wayne posted a tweet letting his fans know exactly where he’d be just a day before his party, but threw in a subliminal yet very direct jab at Birdman’s LIV party.
“Go to LIV for what,” Weezy tweeted. Following this, Birdman posted a flyer for the party along with the caption “RG pullup ni**a,” while Young Thug posted a video addressing the party where he stated, “If you ain’t at LIV ni**a, you ain’t living… We going to LIV. Whoever don’t like it pull up, f**k ni**a.”
If that wasn’t enough, the drama between Lil Wayne and Birdman is continuing to heat up, and now the “Only” rapper is planning to take Nicki Minaj and Drake with him upon his exit from Cash Money.
According to TMZ, Wayne wants millions from Birdman, and is suing to retain the contracts of all his Young Money artists. Drake and Nicki are under the Young Money umbrella, along with Christina Milian, Lil Twist, and YME president Mack Maine.
The fight over the artists will likely get messy, as Cash Money has a distribution deal with all Young Money artists. Birdman also played a key role in shaping Nicki and Drake’s career, but Weezy made his plan clear on his “CoCo” remix, “I ain’t trippin’, I got Barbie, I got Drake too.”
