Birdman Is Suing Jay Z And Tidal For $50m For Streaming Lil Wayne’s Mixtape


Business can be dirty and murky;  you have to make sure that you cross the T and dot the Is. I just wish someone would buy these young men ntepads or something so they wouldn’t have to write their shopping list on their bodies the whole time.

The CEO of Cash Money Records, Birdman is taking Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service to court.

TMZ reports that the lawsuit stems from Tidal’s streaming of Lil Wayne’s Free Weezy Album. Tidal claims it obtained the rights to stream the music legally from Weezy, in return for part ownership in the company.

Birdman’s lawyers say Jay Z is using Wayne in “a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling streaming service.”

Cash Money maintains that it has exclusive rights to all of Lil Wayne’s music, which Tidal’s attorney’s disagree with.

Birdman and company point out that Wayne’s contract states that the “Lollipop” rapper doesn’t have the power to sign the rights over to any of his music. Their lawyers claim FWA got “tepid reviews” that could hurt their ability to market Wayne’s music in the future.

Birdman is seeking $50 million.
