Whether its one big publicity stunt that will likely end in them being buddies again, or if its going to end in a nasty divorce of sorts, we’re getting kinda’ tired of hearing about it. But we know you will never get enough of the gossip.
So after having a listening party at the Versace mansion last night, more rumors come flying in courtesy of the TMZ gossip hounds…so tread lightly (remember the RIP Wayne rumors they started?). According to TMZ, Lil Wayne will fight Birdman to the death and will take his YMCMB artists with him, which includes Nicki, Drake, Christina and….our favorite of the bunch: Stephanie.
Nicki Minaj and Drake are Lil Wayne’s goldfish … ’cause when he finally storms out of Cash Money Records — a la “Jerry Maguire” — he’s taking them along for the ride … even if Birdman has other plans.
Our Weezy sources tell us — in addition to demanding millions from Birdman — Wayne plans to sue to ensure all his Young Money Entertainment artists remain under HIS umbrella.
Drake, Nicki, Christina Milian, and Lil Twist are all signed to Wayne’s label. Mack Maine is also a YME artist, and the label’s president.
Even though Birdman was integral in molding Drake and Nicki’s careers … we’re told Weezy believes the superstars should go with him because their contracts are with YME.
Clouding the issue is the fact … Cash Money has a distribution deal with all of the Young Money artists. Most likely the matter will have to be settled in court, but we’re told Wayne’s intent is clear — he’s not leaving without his crew.
He said as much on the mixtape track, “CoCo” — “I ain’t trippin’, I got Barbie … I got Drake too.”
Let’s see what happens, but again, if all this drama is real and not some PR stunt, shit will most definitely get real as to us it seems that Cash Money has the legal advantage.
