While history can point out many high profile cases of celebrity musicians feuding with their record labels, this is significant for Wayne to do this because he has been signed to Cash Money since the age of 11. He has often referred to Cash Money’s Bryan Williams as a surrogate father, or “Daddy.” Birdman even and Wayne even recorded a collaboration album with Birdman called Like Father Like Son in 2006. That album’s first single was of course the appropriately titled, “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy.”

However just like real biological families, it looks like Wayne is finding himself in a personal battle taken public that no one on the outside saw coming. This eruption against his label had some very odd timing because after many delays and being in the works since 2012, Tha Carter V was finally getting ready to be released on December 9th. To make matters worse, Wayne very publicly promoted Tha Carter V’s new single ”Start A Fire” with Christina Millian on the 2014 American Music Awards. On November 23rd. As you can see this conflict is a complicated one, and there will no doubt be more to this story very soon. We will be sure to keep you updated on if and when Tha Carter V will be released.
