(Rolling Stone) – Lil Wayne is suing Cash Money with the hopes of ending his contract with the label, according to TMZ. The lawsuit alleges that CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams and the company have withheld a substantial amount of money that it owes him with regard to the rapper’s still-unreleased new album, Tha Carter V. Because the label has not paid him the money he claims he’s owed, Wayne contends that he should be able to leave Cash Money.

In addition to severing his contract, Lil Wayne is seeking $51 million and has asked a judge to declare him the joint copyright holder of everything released on his Cash Money imprint, Young Money, including recordings by Drake and Nicki Minaj.

A spokesperson for Birdman was not immediately available for comment.
