Fool a concert promoter once, shame on you. Allegedly fool a concert promoter thrice, you’re getting sued. The guy who runs Cash Money records, Birdman, is being sued for allegedly taking $275,000 to put on a Lil Wayne concert in Miami and then backing out of the deal several times over. Since there’s still no concert, the promoter wants his money back. The best part of the suit though is that Birdman is accused of backing out of one of the shows because the weather was supposedly too cold. Do consider that this was in Miami. It never gets cold in Miami unless there’s a hurricane.

While most people are getting more and more desperate with the fall of economy, Lil Wayne has ice sculptures with money in them. To celebrate the Lil Wayne’s 26th birthday, rapper Birdman threw him a huge party in Miami hotspot Mansion nightclub. They really went all out for the event. There was a large Cash Money Records ice sculpture in the room which held 30 bottles of Cristal. Other ice sculptures had $100 bills frozen inside. Lil Wayne also got one heck of a gift from Birdman – a Luis Vuitton briefcase which was filled with a million dollars in cash. I hope they both have good accountants. I wonder if anyone stayed around and waited for the sculptures to melt.
Another year yet it still seems that it’s going to be filled with lawsuits for the hip hop industry. Rapper Birdman is the most recent one being sued. He just got slapped with a lawsuit for allegedly taking other artists’ songs without paying a red cent for them.
The lawsuit was filed in New Orleans and it alleges that Bryan ‘Birdman’ Williams owes several music publishers an unspecified amount of money for using copyrighted songs without permission. However, Birdman and his brother Ronald, founders of Cash Money Records, have been paid for their work. Let’s hope Birdman doesn’t turn chicken yellow and run.
