“Tha Carter V” will finally see the light of day very soon. Last Month, Lil Wayne was able to reach a legal settlement with Cash Money Records founder and CEO, Birdman. In 2015, Wayne sued the record label for $51 million, claiming the label violated his contract terms and withheld money following numerous delay of “Tha Carter V.”
Following the settlement, Wayne’s attorney, Ron Sweeney released a statement exclusively to Billboard on the rapper’s settlement agreement. “Per our settlement agreement, the matter has been amicably resolved to the satisfaction of all parties. In terms of the particulars, we’re prohibited legally from saying anything further. I can say that my client is happy,” Sweeney said. “He is his own man, a man that owns his assets, his music and himself. At some point, Wayne will let his fans know what’s going to happen next.”
Now free of his contract, with ownership of his music and assets, Weezy recently reassured that his long-awaited album is finally dropping. During a June 24 club appearance in Miami, the rapper tased the project’s upcoming release.
