New legal documents show Lil Wayne and Birdman are voluntarily agreeing to discontinue their case of claiming Drake’s royalties.
Back in 2017, Aspire Music Group, co-founded by Lil Wayne and ex-manager, Cortez Bryant, sued Cash Money Records and Universal Music accusing them of holding out on royalties owed from Drake’s music. Aspire said they discovered Drake and claimed to have a deal in place entitling them to 1/3 share of the net profits from Drake’s first six albums, along with a share of the copyrights. The other 2/3 was split between Wayne’s Young Money and Cash Money. Then Birdman counter-sued Bryant’s Aspire Music Group, accusing Bryant and Lil Wayne of conspiring with a lawyer named Ronald Sweeney to allegedly gain a larger share of Drake’s profits.
The whole beef is in the past now and hopefully everyone is getting their fair share.
