I don't think people complained about 2013 fwiw. But yeah in general every year is the worst/no music coming out/whatever, since people seem to forget anything that wasn't released 5 minutes ago.

I mean weren't some people complaining how this was a slow year, when it's not even the end of February?

What the hell. Fashawn and Alchemist released an EP together in December? Is it good? Is the production more classic, Mobb Deep Alchemist or is it like new age Action Bronson Rare Chandeliers Alchemist?

I guess Fashawn's sophomore album is coming out next week. Boy Meets World was good but fans of that whole west coast clique of artists may overrate BMW more than anything else has ever been rated. Champagne and Styrofoam Cups was okay but the album art was way better than anything on it.

Anybody can do that but that doesn't make the year good. Like if that rich gang tape was perceived as a top tier tape of last year that's pretty bad.

Yeah 2014 was pretty poo poo. Yeah, there were definitely some standout projects but a lot of the more anticipated releases didn't really deliver and there weren't a ton of premiere mixtapes either. 2015 on the other hand has been pretty good so far and we're less than 50 days in.

Breaking Down the Sordid Details of the Lil Wayne vs. Cash Money Lawsuit

quote:

The Facts:
  • November, 1998: Lil Wayne signs to Cash Money.
  • February, 2003: Young Money is officially launched. Lil Wayne owns 49% of Young Money, Birdman and Cash Money own the other 51%. All copyrights, fees, profits, etc. will be similarly split between them. Lil Wayne is not able to sign artists to Young Money without Cash Money's approval.
  • January, 2005: Disputes lead to contract re-negotiations. Under the new version of the deal (a.k.a. the "Settlement"), Wayne is obligated to produce additional albums and in exchange gets a higher royalty rate. This means that the rift between Wayne and Cash Money is nothing new. In fact, it's been going strong for nearly a decade now.
  • July, 2006: Yet another re-negotiation raises Wayne's advances and obligates him to do two Cash Money "duet albums." And that, ladies and gentlemen, is why Like Father, Like Son exists.
  • June, 2008: Wayne and Cash Money agree that the release of Carter III fulfills the obligations of his original 1998 deal. After the re-negotiations to that original deal, he now owes four solo albums and one duet album.
  • 2008: Wayne and Cash Money agree to extend their Young Money joint venture an additional five years. As part of that agreement, Cash Money agrees to keep $1 million in an account at all times to pay Young Money recording expenses and overhead, and agrees to pay Wayne his 49% share of the Young Money profits monthly.
  • June, 2009: Drake signs to Young Money/Cash Money. Under the terms of the deal, Wayne would get one-third of the net profits generated by Drake. This means Drake officially signed to YMCMB a few months after So Far Gone dropped, although he was certainly in talks with them well before. [Side note: Aspire Records, a label started by Wayne and Drake's manager Cortez Bryant, is also listed as Drake's label.]
  • April, 2009: Yet another re-negotiation. Cash Money agrees to pay Wayne a $10 million advance for each solo album: $8 million at the start of recording, $2 million at completion. Also, they agree to extend the Young Money/Cash Money joint venture until June of 2015. Cash Money agrees to pay $200K a quarter for Young Money "overhead" expenses.

The Allegations:
  • Cash Money has not paid the $200K quarterly or kept the $1 million expense account agreed to in the 2008 and April, 2009 agreements.
  • Cash Money has NEVER provided Young Money with accounting of how much money Drake has made (and therefore the amount Wayne is owed under his 49% share). And yes, according the lawsuit, that's never, as in never ever, as in "has failed to provide a single accounting in respect to the exploitation of Drake's recordings." That's crazy talk.
  • Under the terms of the 2003 Young Money/Cash Money joint venture, Cash Money was required to get approval from Young Money for any marketing expenses over 300K. They routinely failed to get that approval, spending millions in marketing expenses. Simply put, Cash Money allegedly spent millions marketing Young Money artists and projects without Young Money's approval, even though Young Money would owe 49% of those expenses under the terms of the 2003 deal.
  • Cash Money has allegedly registered the copyright for Young Money music solely under the Cash Money name, instead of splitting the copyright between Young Money and Cash Money.
  • Cash Money has allegedly routinely refused to sign artists Lil Wayne wanted to sign.
  • Cash Money has allegedly failed to pay those involved in making Young Money albums, opening up Young Money to numerous lawsuits. No poo poo.
  • In terms of Wayne's solo deal with Cash Money (so not Young Money), Cash Money allegedly refuses to show him accounting statements regarding money he's potentially owed.
  • December, 2014: Lil Wayne turned in a completed version of Carter V. Cash Money allegedly refused to pay him the $2 million album completion advance, and had only so far paid him $2 million of the $8 million recording advance owed to Wayne under the terms of the 2009 agreement.

What Lil Wayne Is Asking For:
  • A total of $51 million. That $51 million is the sum total of several parts: advances owed, money owed Wayne for his solo music, money owed Wayne for Young Money music, etc.
  • Because Cash Money has so thoroughly failed to follow the terms of the original 1998 deal, Wayne's solo deal with Cash Money should be considered finished moving forward.
  • Because Cash Money has so thoroughly failed to follow the terms of the 2003 joint venture deal, Young Money's relationship to Cash Money should be finished moving forward.
  • Lil Wayne should have all proper copyrights restored to himself and Young Money, and should be paid adequately moving forward for music recorded under the original deals.
Cliff-notes:
Wayne re-negotiated his contract with Cash Money several times. They had beef behind the scenes.
CM never produced accounting of what Wayne owes or is owed, including his artists like Drake.
Wayne is suing for money and to get out of his contract with CM.

I really want CM to go down for all the dirt they have done. Not cause I'm a hater but because they made money their bragging point and they don't share it. After how they did Juve and Mannie Fresh, I don't have any love for them.

He's hosed (prob literally) but isn't he signed to 1017 and some other label? Like hasn't he just been signing contracts to multiple labels? I need someone to do a loving dissertation to understand his contract situation.

I thought his affiliation with cash money was signing them as his manager, which would let him release rich gang as free music and then birdman could eat off money he makes touring because he won't be legally allowed to release an album under the label. Anyone know?
