One of hip-hop’s most heartbreaking feuds may finally be over.
According to the report, court documents show that Wayne’s Cash Money contract has officially been terminated and he’s been awarded upwards of $10 million. The legal problems they’ve had were aired out by Wayne during onstage performances and made it tough for him to release Tha Carter V.
Wayne also had a disagreement with Universal Records in 2014 when he filed against them over damages and unpaid profits for Young Money artists Tyga, Nicki Minaj, and Drake. Birdman and Wayne refused to release Tha Carter V. At the time, Tyga tweeted “holding me hostage so I can’t release nothing” while his fans awaited his album The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty project.
Weezy’s lawyer said back in May that all parties were ready to throw out the lawsuit if appropriate terms were met. Now, Tha Carter V is set to be released under Universal.
Drake has also been very vocal about Wayne not getting the money he’s rightfully owed. Alongside Wayne on the “Family Feud” remix, Drake rapped: “I’m thinkin’ of payin’ Wayne what Universal owes, My n*gga spent a lifetime goin’ platinum and gold, He should own half of the label, sh*t outta control.”
