Has the rumor of Lil Wayne jumping ship from Cash Money Records to a new label have come true?
Over the weekend at a festival in Los Angeles’ Exposition Park, Lil Wayne was performing “I’m Me” when he started throwing up the Roc-A-Fella sign.
Soon after, instead of saying, “I’m a m***********g Cash Money millionaire,” he replaced the lyric with, “I’m a m***********g Roc-A-Fella millionaire,” prompting fans to speculate that he’s signed a deal with Jay-Z.
This isn’t the first time Wayne has implied he’s signed with Hov.
Last year in Oakland, Weezy said, “I just signed a deal with my m***********g idol Jay-Z.” Many took that to mean he was moving to Roc Nation amidst his quarrel with Cash Money, but his management later clarified that Wayne was referring to his deal as an artist owner on TIDAL, the streaming service that released his Free Weezy Album in 2015.
TIDAL has live streamed Lil Wayne shows in addition to putting out FWA, so clearly Jay has been helping Weezy here and there, but whether Wayne has entered into any sort of deal with Roc Nation as an artist remains to be seen.
Something big seems to be in the works, we will update you about this story as it develops.
