A possible setback in Lil Wayne's plan may be that the Young Money artists have distribution deals with Cash Money, which may have to be resolved in court. Also, Birdman has played a big role in the majority, if not all, of the Young Money artists careers.
"I've gotten so much closer to Wayne lately. Wayne is his own person. He's a businessman and whatever decision Wayne makes, I would never in my life speak against it publicly... even if I didn't agree," Nicki Minaj told Power 106 LA in December, when speaking on Lil Wayne and Birdman's beef. "Baby has always been one of my best friends in the game. And I know that they love each other; that's family."
A representative for Lil Wayne did not respond to request for comment at time of press.
