That’s not a typo, people.
What was reported last week as $8 million is now Fifty-One Million. Via TMZ, Wayne is also asking the judge to declare he’s the joint copyright owner for all Young Money recordings, which include Drake & Nicki of course. Whew, this is getting ugly. More on this as the story keeps developing…
Over the weekend, reports surfaced that Lil Wayne & Birdman are heading to court over Weezy’s contract with Cash Money. Wayne wants out… and he plans on taking Drake & Nicki Minaj with him.
Reports TMZ today:
The resulting legal actions will be something to follow… stay tuned.
Short and sweet, but after one full week of the Cash Money rant simmering, it’s still anti-Cash Money for Weezy. The fallout is real… let’s see what happens next between Wayne and Birdman and for Tha Carter V.
Sidebar: I know Nicki Minaj has nothing to do with this development in particular, but I did just see/find this cool photo of them together for the first time when trying to pick a lead image. So there ya go.
Young Money, what’s good?!
The momentum for both Nicki Minaj & Lil Wayne’s upcoming albums has officially hit a hiccup. For Wayne, there really wasn’t a solid release date, but rumors started to circulate last week that Tha Carter V would see a surprise drop today (October 28th). Mack Maine confirms that won’t happen.
As for Nicki, The Pink Print has been pushed back to December 15th and the Black Friday golden release date is no longer for her. There must be somethin’ serious holdin’ it back for it not to drop on November 24th. It won’t be the new single, revealed yesterday, “Over” featuring Drake, Wayne, & Chris Brown as that’s on track to drop first thing in the morning. Keep it locked.
The timing seems right for another new Nicki Minaj single with The Pink Print due for a Black Friday release in a little less than a month. I expect “Over” to have more of a hip hop edge with the features of her Young Money partners Drake & Lil Wayne, in contrast to “Anaconda” last month. Chris Brown on the hook, or perhaps rapping as well. The single drops, likely at midnight on iTunes, on 10.28 so come back to the site tomorrow night. Also note the single art above and the ridiculous size of those, um, logos.
