Young Money is no longer affiliated with Birdman’s Cash Money.
Lil Wayne was revealed as the cover star for Billboard’s latest feature. In the write-up, Weezy goes into detail about what we can expect from Tha Carter Vand some of the business decisions behind Wayne’s legal dispute with Birdman were revealed. Mainly, the categorization of Young Money as a branch of Stunna’s Cash Money was outlined.
It was casually revealed in the piece that Lil Wayne is now the sole owner of Young Money. That means that what was once a 51-49 percent joint venture has been granted in its entirety to Wayne. C5 would be released via Republic Records but with this news, it means that Wayne has the freedom to drop whatever music was being halted by the big boss. This will mark his first album not to be released under the Cash Money imprint according to Billboard.
