Birdman Celebrating Cash Money’s 20th Anniversary Tour Without Lil Wayne. Birdman is preparing to celebrate 20 years of Cash Money Records with an extensive tour, but the job might have to be done without one of the label’s most famous faces, Lil Wayne.
According to TMZ, Birdman is planning to take his roster on tour early next year and has given an open invitation to Weezy, but the current legal battle between the two has put a big question mark on that.
Otherwise, Baby has Mannie Fresh, Juvenile and Turk on board for the tour. He will also showcase his upcoming talent, probably including Jacquees and Trev Rich.
This year, Wayne has done nothing but separate himself from his former father figure. He’s blasted him at shows and in his lyrics. The beef started two years ago when Weezy claimed he wanted off Cash Money and “nothing to do with these people”, saying that the label was blocking the release of Tha Carter V.
Cash Money released the first Hot Boys album, Get It How U Live!! in 1997 featuring Lil Wayne, Juvenile, Turk and B.G. That same year, Juvenile dropped his solo LP, Solja Rags.
Nearly two decades later, Cash Money dominated the charts in 2016 with Drake’s VIEWS, which spent 30 weeks in the Top 10 of Billboard’s Top 200 albums chart and is now certified four times platinum.
