Los Angeles, CA – Lil Wayne has been embroiled in a war with Cash Money CEO and his one-time father figure Bryan “Birdman” Williams for who knows how long. Tunechi made the feud public in December of 2014 when he claimed on Twitter that he wanted off the label and the beef has played out publicly ever since.
Amid the many swirling rumors, Weezy has aligned himself with Jay Z. At a recent concert, Wayne told the crowd “It’s the Roc,” with many assuming he was announcing a deal with Hov’s Roc Nation.
In an appearance on FS1’s Undisputed, Lil Wayne is asked to clarify the situation with host Skip Bayless.
“Jay’s a good guy, man,” Tunechi said. “It was nothing but a simple thing, just friend to friend, ‘I just wanna help you.’ Simply, that’s all it was. ‘I just wanna help you, man, in any way I can.’ Right now, he’s just gonna help me in any way he can. That’s just what it is.”
Wayne says that this continued partnership does not signify that he has officially left Cash Money.
“We still working on that,” he admitted. “That’s a situation.”
This isn’t the first time Wayne-Roc Nation rumors have flown. The Young Money leader signed with Jay Z’s TIDAL back in 2015, although his statement that he “just signed a deal with my muthafuckin’ idol Jay Z” had many drawing the conclusion that he signed a record deal with Roc Nation.
At another point in time, Wayne said he was offered a deal with Roc-A-Fella, the parent company of Roc Nation, earlier in his career for a reported $175,000.
As he continues to spar with Birdman, Weezy has found other allies in Rap-A-Lot founder J. Prince and his son.
