Lil Wayne and Birdman appear to be on friendlier terms now that the $51 million lawsuit is off the table. Over the last couple of days, fans have been wondering what Wayne’s next move is going to be now that his legal situation has been settled.
On Friday (June 8), a now-since deleted photo surfaced on Instagram of Weezy in a Miami studio with Birdman. According to Hip-Hop-N-More, the two men were in the Hit Factory studio. In the caption, it read, “Father like son.”
For those who don’t know, this could be in reference to their 2006 collaborative album, Like Father, Like Son. So is a sequel in the works? It would have to wait, because fans have been waiting patiently for Tha Carter V album. We are just saying.
Nevertheless, if the photo is legit, this is some great news. Especially since Wayne has officially settled his legal battle against Cash Money Records.
Weezy’s attorney, Ron Sweeney, confirmed to Billboard that both parties have amicably resolved their disagreement. However, he didn't comment on reports that Wayne received a $10 million check from Universal Music Group.
“In terms of the particulars, we’re prohibited legally from saying anything further,” said Sweeney. “I can say that my client is happy. 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."
In addition to the settlement, Lil Wayne was granted that his contract with Cash Money Records be voided as well.
There's still no word yet on when Tha Carter V will be released.
