Lil Wayne made headlines last week when it was announced that he sold his masters for $100 millon back in June, but new reports claim he gave away more than the rights to his music.

According to Music Business Worldwide, a pending lawsuit reveals that the No Ceilings rapper’s settlement also sold Young Money’s entire catalog to Universal Music Group.

The suit reads, “Plaintiffs are informed and believe… that, subsequent to [Sweeney’s] termination [as Wayne’s manager], specifically in or about June of 2020, Lil Wayne was able to sell the Young Money Masters to Universal Music Group for an excess of $100 million.”

Wayne helped to develop the careers of Nicki Minaj, Drake, and Tyga when he signed them to Young Money Records. Over the years, the artists released multiple projects under the label.

Drake’s albums before and including 2018’s Scorpion, for example, were released under Wayne’s record label, but all other projects since have come out under his own imprint, October’s Very Own. Nicki’s entire catalog, including Queen, has been released under Young Money, and as for Tyga, he stopped dropping music with the label since he decided to release his fourth studio album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty, independently.

Wayne’s decision to sell his masters as well as the Young Money catalog comes at a time when artists are trying to obtain the rights to their masters.

Kanye West particularly had a hard time trying to buy his masters back from Universal, prompting one of his social media rants. “I need to see everybody’s contracts at Universal and Sony,” West tweeted. “I’m not gonna watch my people be enslaved. I’m putting my life on the line for my people. The music industry and the NBA are modern day slave ships. I’m the new Moses.”

“My kids gonna own my masters,” he continued in a follow-up tweet.

Fight Breaks out at Pusha-T’s Concert

Pusha T’s show at Toronto’s Danforth Music Hall was going great until a fight erupted! Pusha T is stating that he thinks people were “paid” to throw beer at him.  Fans say people rushed the stage and then a physical altercation took place.  Pusha T was not touched at all, but he feels as though that was intentionally set up. He feels that way so much that he comes back out on stage and performs the song  “Infrared”. A song that has some subliminal shots at Drake. Could Drake be the reason for this outburst? That is the real question everyone wants to know. Sources have stated that many people were attacked on stage and three people were sent to the hospital.  After the show, there was one person who was reportedly stabbed and is in critical condition.    They are inverstigating on if that was linked to the outburst during the show.

Liam and Cheryl planning mega Christmas celebration

Remember the first time you went to a show and saw your favorite band. You wore their shirt, and sang every word. You didn't know anything about scene politics, haircuts, or what was cool. All you knew was that this music made you feel different from anyone you shared a locker with. Someone finally understood you. This is what music is about. Jazz is smooth and cool. Jazz is rage. Jazz flows like water. Jazz never seems to begin or end. Jazz isn't methodical, but jazz isn't messy either. Jazz is a conversation, a give and take. Jazz is the connection and communication between musicians.

If you want to be a rock star or just be famous, then run down the street naked, you'll make the news or something. But if you want music to be your livelihood, then play, play, play and play! And eventually you'll get to where you want to be.

Vibrations

Sometimes I'll have sections that I'm not quite sure how they fit in the puzzle of a tune, they'll get moved around; what I think was originally a verse ends up becoming the chorus, or what's an intro gets dropped as a hook, things get shifted around a lot. Feelings aroused by the touch of someone's hand, the sound of music, the smell of a flower, a beautiful sunset, a work of art, love, laughter, hope and faith - all work on both the unconscious and the conscious aspects of the self, and they have physiological consequences as well.

Inspiration comes from so many sources. Music, other fiction, the non-fiction I read, TV shows, films, news reports, people I know, stories I hear, misheard words or lyrics, dreams... Motivation? The memory of the rush I get from a really good writing session - even on a bad day, I know I'll find that again if I keep going.

I think music is so diverse today, and bands are so diverse. If you were a rock band in the Eighties, you kind of had to stick to one thing. Now, in this age of Coachella and European festivals and stuff, it's kind of anything goes, so that allowed us to try different things.

When you make music, you're forming these invisible vibrations in the air into different shapes and consistencies and speeds in order to create music, and understanding how the math of that works just gives you more colors to paint with, and allows you to get to what you want quicker.
