Lil Wayne had the internet buzzing this weekend after he told the crowd at KMEL’s Summer Jam, “I just signed a deal with my motherf*cking idol, Jay Z.” What deal was Weezy referring to in those comments?
Bloggers and social media users began wondering if that meant the Young Money leader had finally cut ties with Cash Money and joined Hov’s record label Roc Nation. Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant explained to Billboard that is not the case.
“The Internet and blogs took his words out of context,” said Bryant. “When Wayne was speaking about the partnership with Jay Z, he was speaking about his new deal as an artist owner with Tidal.”
Wayne recently became a part owner of the Tidal streaming service along with Jay, Nicki Minaj, Kanye West, J. Cole, Beyoncé, Rihanna, and others. He released his song “Glory” exclusively through the platform.
