Oh, and get ready for “Tha Carter V.”

According to court documents obtained by The Blast, Wayne’s attorney, Howard King, filed a notice with the court on May 23 that all sides are ready to dismiss the lawsuit.

Sources say Universal wrote a big check to settle the suit and none of the money came from Birdman. As for the amount, we learn it is “well over $10 million.”

We are told that Universal was comfortable with the massive payment because they believe they will recoup the profits from Drake and Nicki Minajgoing forward — a major part of what Wayne was suing over.

As part of the arrangement, Lil Wayne is now officially done with Cash Money and the infamous “Tha Carter V” album will now be put out by Universal.

Weezy originally sued Birdman’s label, Cash Money Records, to have his record deal voided. He accused the label of owing him tens of millions of dollars, including an $8 million advance for “Tha Carter V,” plus $2 million once the album was finished.

As The Blast first reported, even though Lil Wayne and Birdman were seen hanging out together a few times back in March, the two were still “very hostile” towards each other and there is “no relationship” between them.
