Back in September 18th, Lil Wayne says Universal Music Group advanced Birdman $100 million for a distribution deal, but not nearly enough of that money fell into Weezy’s pockets … according to legal docs obtained by TMZ.
He’s clearly pissed because, on paper anyway, he and Birdman are partners on Cash Money/Young Money. He claims Birdman’s admitted spending approximately $70 mil of the advance on royalties, marketing and recording expenses — but now Wayne wants to see receipts to back that up.

The judge grants Lil Wayne wishes and Birdman must show some receipts.
According to TMZ reports, Here’s the problem for Birdman — his peeps over at Cash Money weren’t keeping very good track of those records … for 2 whole years. Birdman’s lawyer shrugged it off this way … “It is what it is.”
That excuse didn’t fly with the judge … who gave Birdman 30 days to find those records, or get the right person who knows where they are and get ’em to Wayne
