Lil Wayne's adoptive father and former label boss Birdman is suing Jay Z's music streaming service Tidal for $50 million, according to a new report.
Birdman's Cash Money Records filed the lawsuit which claims that Tidal is.....
illegally using Wayne's songs, which it says it has exclusive rights to.
The legal documents, obtained by TMZ, go further, also claiming that Jay Z's company is on the brink of collapse and is using Wayne's music to save itself.
Cash Money's filing claims that Tidal is resorting to 'a desperate and illegal attempt to save their struggling streaming service.'
TMZ reports that Tidal previously claimed that Cash Money does not own exclusive rights, and that Wayne gave Tidal the right to stream his music.
However, Cash Money cites various portions of its contract with Ll Wayne in the lawsuit as a counter to Tidal's claims.
