Lil Wayne Reportedly Holding Up “Tha Carter V” Album Release

Lil Wayne

One of the main issues in Lil Wayne's battle against Cash Money Records and Birdman has been the delay of his long awaited Tha Carter V album.

Weezy has claimed that the label has been holding his album hostage, but is it actually the other way around?

According to TMZ, sources close to Birdman say that Wayne is holding onto Tha Carter V album, refusing to give it to the label until they work out their money issues.

In his lawsuit, the rapper is owed an $8 million advance for the album, as well as another $2 million upon its completion. This is just a portion of the $51 million Wayne is suing Cash Money for, which he believes he's owed.
