Birdman is suing Jay Z & Tidal for streaming songs from Lil Wayne’s album ‘FWA’ for $50 MILLION. Cash Money claims it has exclusive rights to Wayne’s music and Tidal is an illegal intermeddler.
According to TMZ, the lawsuit states Tidal streamed Weezy’s music as “a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling streaming service.”
According to the lawsuit, Tidal claims Wayne specifically gave it the right to stream his music, in return for part ownership in the company.
Cash Money claims Wayne’s contract specifically says Wayne does not have the power to license his music to anyone else.
