Lil' Wayne Suing Universal On Drake, Nicki, and Tyga

Lil' Wayne thinks he's owed millions of dollars because he "discovered" Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga

According to Billboard, Dwayne Carter Jr (Lil' Wayne) is suing Universal and is requesting $100 million to Cash Money Records, INC for "nurturing" artists Drake, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga.

Here's some of the lingo from the suit, as told by Billboard:

"With Universal’s knowledge of Lil Wayne’s rights to partial ownership and profits from those artists, Universal and Cash Money entered into a series of agreements which, among other things, diverted Lil Wayne’s substantial profits to repay debts of Cash Money," states the complaint. "As a result, 100% of the profits that should have been paid to Lil Wayne as a result of his ownership of Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga records have been seized by Universal to repay debts that were neither incurred by nor were the obligations of Lil Wayne."

No word as to how this will go, or how Cash Money and Young Money will then have to duke it out for the cuts of money if the case is awarded to Wayne.
