Lil Wayne is reportedly suing his boss and former mentor Bryan "Birdman" Williams for $51 million in what could be a breakup between two of the most notable faces in hip hop after nearly 25 years together.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit centers around Wayne's yet-to-be-released album "The Carter V." Wayne plans to sue the label to which he's signed, Cash Money Records, and Birdman, the co-founder of the label, for delaying the album's release and withholding millions of dollars.
