Despite the ongoing tension between Lil Wayne and his label Cash Money Records, the rapper has chosen to release a free project to fans. The Young Money lyricist took to Twitter early this morning (February 5) to share the news of the free album.
From Wayne’s series of tweets, it was revealed that the project will be titled the Free Weezy Album and will be released “soon.”
“The Free Weezy Album…komin soon#FWA… Free album. Free Weezy season. The Free Weezy Album. #FWA,” Lil Wayne said in two separate tweets.
In regards to the growing saga between Lil Wayne and Cash Money, Weezy is currently suing the label for $51 million. Last month, the full 21-page lawsuit between the two parties surfaced online. A portion of the lawsuit states the following:
“In early December, 2014, Carter delivered to Cash Money the sound recordings comprising the second of the solo albums, entitled ‘Tha Carter V’, provided for by the 2012 Amendment. Although obligated to pay Carter Eight Million Dollars ($8,000,000.00) at the commencement of the recording of ‘Tha Carter V’ and Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) upon delivery of the album, Cash Money breached the 1998 Recording Agreement as amended specifically by the 2012 Amendment, by failing to pay Carter the Eight Million Dollar ($8,000,000.00) payment upon commencement of the recording and paying Carter only Two Million Dollars ($2,000,000.00) over the course of the recording of ‘Tha Carter V’.”
