(AllHipHop News) For over a year, Lil Wayne and Birdman were involved in a very public feud that included Twitter rants, lawsuits, drink throwing, disses in songs, and alleged murder conspiracies. The estranged pair, that once referred to themselves as father and son, are reportedly on the verge of settling their differences.
It came as a shock to many observers when YMCMB’s Wayne, Birdman, and Drake were all seen together in a photo on New Year’s Eve. According to TMZ, the picture was a sign the Young Money leader and the Cash Money Records co-founder have spoken about reconciling.
YM executive Mack Maine apparently played a role in bringing the two New Orleans natives back together. Maine is supposedly set up a phone conversation between Wayne and Birdman before the met face-to-face at they NYE party in Miami.
Our sources say both Wayne and Birdman have strong feelings about burying the hatchet. That said, we’re told Wayne will not move to dismiss his lawsuit unless and until they reach an agreement.
As for why they came together, we’re told Mack Maine has a lot of influence, especially with Wayne, and opened his mind to a settlement.
In late 2014, Wayne announced on Twitter that he wanted to leave Cash Money, because the company refused to release his Tha Carter V album. That was followed by the “Glory” rapper filing a $51 million lawsuit against his record label. Birdman later sued Tidal, which Wayne is a part owner, over the streaming service hosting Wayne’s Free Weezy Album.
