Lil Wayne Wanted To Sign Chanel West Coast, But Birdman Blocked It
Chanel West Coast has been repping Young Money since reportedly signing in 2013, but apparently, the contract was never finalized.
As part of Lil Wayne's deal with Birdman's Cash Money Records, he could sign and develop talent under his Young Money imprint... but Birdman had blocked some of his decisions.
In court docs obtained by TMZ, as part of their ongoing legal battle, Wayne claims he tried to ink a deal with Chanel West Coast for his Young Money label, but negotiations fell through because Birdman refused to sign off.
Lil Wayne says Birdman and Cash Money has ultimately cost him a lot of money by getting in the way of his business.
It was thought that Chanel West Coast signed to Young Money in 2013, and to this day, she's still featured on the official website as an artist.
