EXCLUSIVELil Wayne says he’s trying to sign and develop young talent in an effort to keep his music label at the top of the game … but Birdman is blocking his decisions.
In the long standing legal battle with Birdman … Weezy claims in legal docs he tried to ink a deal with Chanel West Coast on his Young Money Label … but negotiations went south when Cash Money refused to give the official sign off.
Here’s what’s odd — back in 2013 it was reported Chanel signed with Young Money … and is still featured on their website as an artist. According to Wayne’s docs though … the deal never went through … so it’s unclear whether Chanel was ever officially brought on.
Wayne makes it clear though … Birdman is getting in the way of business and ultimately costing the company a ton of money.
We reached out to Birdman for comment … so far no word back.
