The CEO of Cash Money says that it was Lil Wayne’s idea and Young Money’s first lady followed suit.
“[Wayne]’s so much an artist like that,” Birdman says. “He change his mind a lot. He feel like he want to do more. Really, they be on they call. It ain’t on me. So whatever Wayne want to do, Nicki want to do. I leave that up to them. I don’t decide on dates and everything. I don’t do none of that.”
Lil Wayne also confirmed the pushback via social media stating the release date for Tha Carter V will be pushed off but no specific date. The album was slated to be released today. Nicki Minaj announced via press release that she moved the drop date for The Pinkprint from November 24 to December 15.
“I’m just working with them as artists,” he says. “It ain’t about what I can make from them. It’s what I can make of ‘em. You can take nothing to something. That speaks more than anything. That speaks volumes to me. I’m always gonna be a part of their career. It ain’t about what I can make off them. You do something for a muthafucka who never have nothing and make him outta something he gonna do for you regardless.”
