As the lengthy legal battle between Birdman and Lil Wayne continues to play out, Baby is now suing Jay Z and Tidal for streaming Wayne’s ‘Free Weezy Album’ exclusively on the service.

According to TMZ, newly filed court documents show that Birdman is going after Jay and Tidal for $50 million and they maintain that they own all of the exclusive rights to Wayne’s music and that the Tidal arrangement is illegal.

The lawsuit states that Tidal claims Cash Money doesn’t have that exclusive ownership, and that Wayne gave the go-ahead to exclusively stream his music in return for part ownership in Tidal. The lawsuit apparently points out specific portions of Wayne’s Cash Money contract, which he is currently trying to get out of, where it states that he doesn’t have the power to license his music to anyone else.

Wayne’s Free Weezy Album dropped exclusively on Tidal earlier this month following Wayne’s official announcement that he had inked a deal for the project with Jay and the company.

All of this is right on the heels of an official indictment out of Atlanta that makes it sound like Birdman and Young Thug, who was just arrested and charged with drugs and weapons violations, plotted to kill Wayne….
