It’s been a very long, long, long situation between Lil Wayne , Cash Money, and ‘Carter V’ album release situation. The album will drop this year.
Back in Jan of this year, Lil Wayne calls Birdman a bluff.
Our Weezy sources tell us the rapper thinks Birdman needs to stop crowing about the now-mythical album, and start paying about it because there’s been zero movement in their legal/financial war.
We’re told Wayne heard Birdman saying he’s putting the beef behind him, but believes the Cash Money honcho’s just trying to “look like the nice guy.” Weezy’s yet to hear a peep about settling his his $51 million lawsuit, and until he does … nothing changes. As we first reported, Wayne’s holding the master recording.
In a new interview with Billboard, Birdman is sounding optimistic about his relationship with Lil Wayne and Wayne’s mystery album Carter V.
“You will get it this year,” Birdman said regarding Lil Wayne’s The Carter V. “Me and Wayne will be aight. I’ma make that work. That’s my son and I love him, and we’ll make it happen.”
Baby was doing the interview with Mannie Fresh, and the super producer added something that leads us to believe it’s going to be a while before Carter V comes out .
“I have some songs on ‘Tha Carter V’ but if I hear a song five times, I don’t like it no more. I’m ready to do new music,” Fresh said. “I think my songs should be revamped. I don’t know what the other songs are but I don’t like the songs that I did because it took too long to come out.”
This will be good…….
Solange, Pharrell, Lil Wayne are set to perform at 10th Annual Roots Picnic.
The annual Roots Picnic turns 10 this spring and they’re bringing Pharrell, Solange and Lil’ Wayne to Festival Pier to celebrate on June 3. Tickets go on sale today at noon at rootspicnic.com.
For a decade, the annual picnic has driven local and national crowds to Philly to hear the best and brightest old and new school hip hop artists, some of whom (e.g. Snoop Dogg, Public Enemy, Usher in the past) get the rare opportunity to team with one of America’s finest, most dynamic, live bands: The Roots.
Lil Wayne start his speech by thanking his fans for their unconditional support and the Most High at the Masquerade Nightclub. Mannie Fresh, 2 Chainz, Juvenile, Turk and more show Weezy some love and support for the Hot Boys Reunion… We can’t forget about B.G. #FreeBG!

Both Birdman and Lil Wayne are set to be in New Orleans to celebrate the upcoming Cash Money anniversary. However, they will celebrate in different events.
This will be interesting…
TMZ reports, Lil Wayne will be at Masquerade Nightclub, while Birdman’s hitting up several venues that are mere blocks away … including the House of Blues.
Our Cash Money sources say they’ll both be showing love for their label, but Wayne’s done way too much trash-talking to share a stage with Birdman.
Wayne will hook up with the Hot Boys though — performing with Mannie Fresh, Turk and Juvenile. We’re told Mannie plans to pull double duty, and rendezvous with Birdman too at a different club.
In part one of HipHopDX’s two-part exclusive interview with Mannie Fresh the legendary hit maker opens up about reconciling with Birdman, patching things up between the Cash Money CEO and Lil Wayne and bringing back the Ruff Ryders/Cash Money Tour twenty years after it swept the nation.
