Lil Wayne former label Cash Money records are not known for conducting a quiet business.
The music company is suing Jay Z’s Tidal streaming service for $50 million over the release of Wayne’s new album.
Earlier this month, Free Weezy Album was launched exclusively on Tidal, but Cash Money is claiming the exclusive rights to the rapper’s music, insisting his contract prevents any other organisation releasing his music, TMZ reports.
According to the lawsuit, the release of Lil Wayne album on the platform is a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling streaming service”
Quoting contractual terms, the suit says Wayne does not have the right to license his music to anyone else.
