Reports say Lil Wayne has settled  his legal battle against Cash Money and Birdman. In an agreement between Wayne, Universal Records and Cash Money, Tunechi is no longer part of the label and will receive “well over $10 million,” according to reports.

This fight between Universal and Lil Wayne is not new and includes lawsuit in March of 2016, which has also now been settled, according to Pitchfork.  At the time, Wayne filed against Universal over damages and unpaid profits for Young Money artists Tyga, Nicki Minaj and Drake.

Wayne’s lawyer, Howard King, filed a notice with the court on May 23 that said everyone involved is ready to throw out the lawsuit. As part of the deal, Tha Carter V will be released through Universal. The status of Drake’s and Nicki Minaj’s contracts with Cash Money seems to remain intact.
