Bryan ‘Baby’ Williams aka Birdman is trying to earn another moniker and that is Mr. F’ U Pay me. With the lawsuit going on between Lil Wayne and Birdman over Tha Carter V and the recent allegations of conspiracy to murder Lil Wayne, Birdman has become in a way the hip hop version of Lex Luthor. He is already bald so he has the look down at least.

Because Lil Wayne’s That Carter V has been placed in the shelf indefinitely, he made a deal with Jay-Z to release the Free Weezy Album on Tidal exclusively. Well Birdman did not like that one bit and is now suing Tidal for $50 million dollars. Cash Money claims to have the exclusive rights to Lil Wayne’s music, thus making Tidal an illegal third-party, according to TMZ.

Also according to the law suit TMZ obtained, that this was ‘a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling music streaming service’. Cash Money also says Lil Wayne does not have the power to license his music to anyone else and that they go on to even talk down on the album. Explaining that Free Weezy Album got ‘tepid’ reviews and could hurt Cash Money’s future attempts to exploit any of Lil Wayne’s music.

Interesting enough is that Wayne is suing Birdman for $51 million and he is in turn suing Tidal for $50 million. If all goes smoothly, that is just a million he would have to really come out his own pockets for to pay Wayne. However, knowing Jay-Z’s legal team and how he operates this may not be as cut and dry as Cash Money seems to make the lawsuit.
