Weezy says he is being held "prisoner" by his label.
Just weeks after Tyga hit out at Young Money, Lil' Wayne has joined the party voicing his anger at Birdman's Cash Money.
The 'Senile' rapper's new album 'Tha Carter V' was suppose to finally be released on 9th December, after several delays, but Wayne has announced that we shouldn't expect it to drop because Cash Money refuse to release it.
In a series of tweets Lil' Wayne moaned that he wants off the label and that he and his creativity are "prisoners."
