Juvenile Says Lil Wayne Wanted To Leave Cash Money In Mid 2000s

Juvenile says Lil Wayne wanted to leave the Cash Money label in the mid 2000s and adds that, "Wayne really got beat out of all his money."

The Juvenile/Cash Money saga has been a long one. After he began his career as a Cash Money artist, Juvenile and the label have been at odds over financial matters. Now, Juvenile is speaking on how other artists wanted to leave soon after he left the CM ship. In an interview with Complex, Juve talks about how Lil Wayne once wanted to leave too.

“When Wayne was trying to leave Cash Money [in the mid 2000s], same thing," he explained. "He was trying to find out how did I leave, what did I do, he wanted to see my paperwork. I was like you can see it, but you’re gonna have to pay me for it now because now I know you ain’t with me. You’re own your own because I’m definitely on my own. If you want the paperwork and help from my end, I need to be compensated for it. [He never paid for it]." 

Juvenile also added that he feels "Wayne really got beat out of all his money." 

“Still up to the day, Wayne really got beat out of all his money and took another contract. That’s the part I never understood. I was signed to Atlantic and Jay-Z was excited about that because now we was about to get our own money. That’s what I really wanted. I wanted him to leave. All of a sudden he signed back I’m like, ‘Damn, what type of deal he got working?’" 

Juve went on to say that Cash Money is still not giving Wayne what he deserves.

“If you notice the Young Money/Cash Money imprint, some of the stuff that need to say Young Money don’t say Young Money. I know Baby and I know Ronald ["Slim" Williams]. They ain’t giving up power of their company. They don’t care how big Wayne gets, they not giving up. If I didn’t get it, he ain’t getting it." 

Juvenile went on to add that he felt Wayne was "scared" to leave.

“I thought he was scared [that’s why he stayed]," Juvenile explained. "That’s how I took it. I was like, ‘You don’t have to be scared.’ I’m really from the projects. No disrespect to them, but I’m 10 times more street than they are. They would never go to some of the places I’d go, they’d never turn some of the corners I turned because they’re not like that. It’s two different ballgames. So I’m like, ‘Don’t let them niggas intimidate you. Don’t let that looking hard shit intimidate you because nigga I’m really with it. If you wanna leave, leave. You’re with me now, not them.’ One thing led to another and he signed back, but I took it as he was scared.”

      Dear Piggie (Biggie) Stan, I know that you still can't accept the fact that 2 Pac and at least 50 other rappers were better than that Chubb Rock sound alike. Puff Daddy has so much game that he tricked people on the east coast into believing if people were dissing Piggie, then they were dissing New York City and the whole east coast....lol

    • Weezy Stan

      It was all sarcastic, my dude (hence the "blah blah blah" term). And you should note that I put the term "Stan" in my title so everything that I was gonna say afterwards was gon' be on some baloney stuff. It's just a satire for Weezy stans, which I can't stand yo. P.S.: I'm a fan of both Weezy and Juve and I agree that it's nothing but truth Juve said right there. And as far as my religion, I believe in one God and He's indeed no rapper. Peace!

  • room2roam

    weezy recently made a forbes list. NEVER seen juvie on one. maybe its truth but weezy n the rest of em look like they in a better position that juve. didnt juve just do a recent collab wit wayne and baby? either way this shyt old. he cant let go cuz he never recovered maybe??

  • Westsidecali

    Always been a Juvie cash money fan, but at some point niggaz got to let that shit go and move on.. I hate seeing niggaz come up together and fall out over some money. Ain't no real beef, I've seen all these niggaz together on stage a few times since then.. I remember bg saying baby couldn't come back to New Orleans, and niggaz had money on baby head..and it wasn't a couple months later, that bg was taking pics with baby and wayne, saying baby raised him.. Point being, wayne and baby blew up to another level and there's going to be some natural anger behind that.. Juvie put them on the map..them niggaz need to be trying to link back up and eat together, instead of bringing up this old shit

    Lil Wayne Literally Said On The Dedicated Mixtape He Had The Chance To Go To Def Jam But He Didn't. It's Well Documented That Birdman Had Wayne Under His Thumb and Cash Money Was A Sinking Ship. In The Long Run It Worked Out Him But What Juve Is Saying Is True.

  • Wise Words

    Ole Juve need to stop hating, because regardless of Wayne getting messed over, him and Wayne ended up with more money, than if Cash Money would have left them in the ghetto. Futhermore, Wayne definitely has more money than Ole Juve and has sold more records at this point. "The race doesn't go to the swift".

  • papabearATL

    Keeping millions while you give a nigga some cars and some jewelry... Sounds like how a pimp treats a bitch. Signed to one nigga that's signed to another nigga thats signed to three niggas, now that's bad luck... If you ain't getting your worth, why are you out there with the buffoonery? Something is better that nothing isn't sound reasoning...

EITHER WAY, JUVE IS GREAT RAPPER, BUT WHAT HE IS TALKING ABOUT WAYNE JUST DOESN'T MAKE SENSE, LIL WAYNE IS EVERY YEAR IN FORBES TOP 20 WITH HIS MONEY (ALONGSIDE WITH BIRDMAN) AND EVEN IF BIRDMAN AND SLIM TOOK 95 PERCENTS OF HIS MONEY, HE WOULD STILL HAVE MORE MONEY THAN JUVE.

    and this is old news.didnt some shit come out like in 05 saying wayne might leave and sign with jay z or some shit? and they said something like birdman bought him like a million dollar car and gave him Young Money to stay with Cash Money.

  • the don

    Juvenile is just being honest. could be publicity for either him or cash money but everybody who was once with CM,say that they left cause baby owe them money. BG say it all the time in songs and even threatened baby with a big ass gun in this SMACK dvd i got lol. Mannie Fresh said he left cause of the money on the same SMACK dvd. Juvenile left then said it was cause the money then came back then left again and said the same shit. So did wayne get all the money he was suppose to? No. is he now? listening to babys past,probably not. shit,i feel like Nicki and Drake arnt getting all the money they are suppose to be getting. but at the same time,im not sure if wayne left he would be as big as he is now. if he left he probably would of ended up like BG or Juvenile. but at the same time,he could of ended up being just as successful but with more money cause he wouldnt have birdman taking extra shit? who knows but the facts is,he stayed with cash money,became the hugest rapper in the game and currently is worth 95 million dollars. birdman is worth 125 million but he's the CEO so he should have more money in my eyes. however,50 do have more money than eminem lol. Juvenile is worth 2.5 mill so he aint doin too bad either but he aint fucking with wayne. and wayne is worth almost 100 million dollars,if he dont like it he can leave and do his own shit but im sure Cash Money will damn near vanish and most of birdmans money.

      the majority of 50s money doesnt come from rap. It comes from him hoing himself out to vitamin water and energy drinks

      look at 50 cent for example he ranked on forbes a few years ago above dre and em and he was signed to them what does that say wayne isn`t getting what he deserves but he doesn`t seem to care about it or maybe he is just scared like juve said

  • Anonymous

    WHEN mACK10 signed to CM, he got 10 million. He made one album and hit it on they ass. Thats more than Juvy ever made with all his hits combined from CM. They needed mack10 to validate their Blood status. Listen, these niggas get extorted just to live. If you believe niggas are pure blood, look at he old CM albums where them niggas were rockin royal blue gear. Juve a real nigga and so was BG and that truth is why niggas do and say wtf they want. How did BG put it... "If i catch Baby Im gonna put a gun in his mouth"... Blatant disrespect equals fake niggas... be clear. Be true.

  • ryan

    On Dedication 1 Wayne talks about how Jay-Z tapped him but then was offered a good deal from Cash Money. Drake was offered a deal with Roc Nation but chose Young Money because he said They offered a deal first. Yet, can you imagine how much better Wayne's albums would have been if He was on Jay-z's label? That 'Rock' Album would have never hit stores. I believe Drake is The best on Young Money Right Now. Thank Me Later and Take Care are both pretty damn good.

      neither would the carters, under jay z he would have just been jays shadow and would have no confidence and would have fell off. he would be broke right now, jay wouldnt have given wayne what baby did, he wouldn't have ym he wouldnt have owned anything. just would have been an underling

      but if you look at birdman and slims networths, then add them to lil waynes networth, it gets closer to jay-z's numbers... the way shit is there now is wayne got dicked over like 200 milli, but hes like family with them so what he needs he gets plus hes got about 95 million of his own. but if he would have went solo and just left and used young money as the lable. he'd have like 300 milla atleast

    There was obviously something going on behind the scenes. I read in VIBE that Jay-Z wanted to sign Wayne. Jay-Z is Wayne's idol why would he willingly choose to go back to Cash Money over Rocafella ? for loyalty ? lmao yeah right. his best days are behind him and he doesn't even have the profit to show for his success.

    I feel one day Wayne and Baby will eventually fall out....The older wayne gets he going to see the light. He might have already seen it...maybe thats why he don't give a fuck as much about music no more. Maybe thats why he sounds like he ain't trying when he raps now. Maybe thats why he has embraced this skateboard shit.....skateboarding is a rebellious do what you want type of culture.....i think its starting. Maybe that makes him feel liberated and free from baby and slim.

    Everyone outside of Cash Money/Young Money already seems to know this....just funny that the artists signed to the label don't get it. With Wayne's popularity and work ethic right now he should be making so much more money than he is. If he'd have went another direction instead of resigning he'd probably be in that Jay-Z/Diddy/50 Cent category of money right now.
