    Birdman has claimed that he is not responsible for "stopping" the release of Lil Wayne's Tha Carter V. Birdman told Hot 97 in an interview, "Me not putting out Tha Carter V, why wouldn't I? I've got a lot of money invested into Young Money and Wayne. So for me, I want to get some of mine's back, you understand me? ... I think the world deserve Tha Carter V. Whatever he wanna do, I'm good with it. I ain't gonna stop him, I'm gonna embrace it. Wayne is a boss. He his own boss. ... I would never stop him from doing nothin'. He's still puttin' out records—I could stop that s*** if I wanted to, but I ain't gonna stop him from hustlin'. We in this for the money, man. We rap for the money."

    Over the past year, Lil Wayne and Birdman have been in a feud, and Wayne sued Birdman for not releasing Tha Carter V. Wayne claimed that Birdman and Cash Money Records refused to release the record. More recently, however, it seemed like there would be a possible reconciliation between the two, as they appeared on stage together in Miami, Florida.

    Lil Wayne is still suing Birdman for the release of the record. In March, it was revealed that Wayne is also suing Universal Music and SoundExchange for $40 million in damages over unpaid profits Wayne earned for discovering artists such as Drake and Nicki Minaj.
