Birdman never followed through with his reported $50 million lawsuit against Jay Z’s TIDAL over Lil Wayne’s Free Weezy Album, TIDAL says to Rolling Stone.
“No Cash Money lawsuit was ever served and therefore it was dismissed before it was ever started,” the TIDAL rep says.
(The original post in this thread was published July 16, 2015. It is as follows.)
The lawsuit says TIDAL’s release of the music was “a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling streaming service.”
The streaming service responds to the claims by saying that Lil Wayne gave it the rights to the music in exchange for an ownership stake in the company.
Cash Money counters by quoting its contract with Lil Wayne, saying he can not license his music to other parties.
Lil Wayne signed with TIDAL last month.
