It was a packed house at Lil Wayne’s Lil Weezyana Festival in New Orleans this weekend where the rapper dissed his record label, Cash Money, before performing the cut “No Worries.”
“Before I get off this stage, I want to say three more important words,” said Wayne, 33. “F--- Cash Money,” which has been the MC’s go-to diss since his problems with Birdman began nearly two years ago.

The beef between Tunechi and the label’s co-owner started when the “A Milli” rapper said his “Carta V” album was being held back.
“To all my fans, I want you to know that my album won’t and hasn’t been released because Baby and Cash Money Records refuse to release it,” wrote Wayne in December 2014. “I am truly and deeply sorry to all my fans but most of all to myself and my family for putting us in this situation. I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain’t that easy,” he added.
Since that tweet, Wayne and Birdman have exchanged subtle and not so subtle disses through the media, but seemed to mend their differences in January while in Miami. That reconciliation was short-lived, however, because the Young Money rapper started blasting his former mentor soon after that.
Meanwhile, Birdman has done the complete opposite and said he wanted to mend things between himself and Wayne.
“I wouldn’t be a man if I can say somebody is my son, and I can speak down on him,” he said last week on the podcast “Be Honest.” “That’s not a man. I look at him as my son, and I won’t finish the game without Wayne. Even if he stay with me or go do whatever he wants to do, I respect him as a son. I’ma fix it. Whatever happens after that, we gon’ let it be.”
As it stands, Weezy is still suing Birdman and Cash Money for $51 million.
