WTF Tho? Lil Wayne Denies Birdman’s Claim He Conspired to Take Bigger Cut of Drake’s Royalties

Back in August it was reported, Birdman’s Cash Money Records counter-sued Bryant’s Aspire Music Group, accused Bryant and Lil Wayne of conspiring with a lawyer named Ronald Sweeney to allegedly gain a larger share of Drake’s profits.

According to documents, obtained by The Blast, Cash Money now claims, “Aspire was simply a shell company,” adding, “There was no business purpose to forming Aspire, other than to siphon profits out of the joint venture and to divert those profits to Sweeney, Bryant, and Carter/ Young Money. Aspire never conducted any business other than getting Drake signed to a record label. Aspire has never signed, nor sought to sign, a single additional artist.”

Here’s an update on the messy situation.

According to The Blast reports, On October 29, Wayne – through his music company, Aspire Music Group – filed docs to dismiss Cash Money’s counter-suit.

Aspire points out this lawsuit against them was filed “on the heels of Cash Money and Universal settling related claims brought against them by Young Money Entertainment” and its owner, Lil Wayne.

They accuse Birdman and his label of trying to “completely rewrite” history about Aspire and how it was formed in their countersuit. Aspire says Cash Money is trying to “concoct a new fantasy narrative that casts Cash Money as the long-suffering victim of a scheme orchestrated by the very parties that it just settled with – Young Money and its owner principal Dwayne Carter.”

Aspire argues that if the scheme is to be believed, Lil Wayne would be engaging in a series of acts that would ultimately harm him financially, which they claim makes no sense.

They point out these allegations were never once mentioned until after the Lil Wayne and Birdman lawsuit was settled earlier this year, despite the alleged fraud taking place several years prior. Wayne’s company is demanding the entire counter-suit be thrown out.
