Birdman and his label Cash Money Records had yet to respond to the allegations in Wayne’s legal battle.

However on April 6th, Lil Wayne filed documents in the case stating he wishes to voluntarily dismiss the lawsuit against Cash Money. He dismissed the case “without prejudice” meaning he could re-file but it appears the rapper and his mentor Birdman may have reached a truce. See the exclusive court docs.

According to an attorney involved, the case has NOT been dropped, but transferred to courts in Louisiana:

The lawsuit has not been “dropped”.  The forum for the hearing of the claims is in the process of being transferred to courts in Louisiana.
