Birdman Throws Drink at Wayne
Lil Wayne Vs. Young Thug
Wayne and Thug’s relationship took a major hit when the Atlanta upstart vowed to name his album Tha Carter VI. With the status of Wayne’s Tha Carter V up in the air, a vexed Weezy took a barrage of shots at Thugger despite once having a solid working relationship with him dating backing to their “Take Kare” record. Thugger continued to badger Wayne and lure him into his den by taking stabs at him. Wayne lawyered up and was able to get him to not drop Tha Carter 6. Thugger would drop Barter 6 in return and sell a paltry 19,000 copies.
Lil Wayne’s Tour Bus Gets Shot Up
In April, Weezy’s tour bus was shot up in Atlanta. Birdman and Thug were linked to the shooting. The shooter – Jimmy Carlton Winfrey – pleaded guilty and received 20 years for his actions. Birdman vehemently denied his involvement. Carlton once appeared in Thug’s “Halftime” video.
