It’s unclear what agreement was reached, but we know that Wayne was originally seeking tens of millions of dollars in damages and permission to leave Cash Money, taking the contracts of Drake, Nicki Minaj and Tyga with him.

UPDATE: Or maybe not.

UPDATE #2: Lil Wayne’s lawyer Ron Sweeney issued a statement to Rolling Stone offering a more detailed update on the status of his lawsuit:

“We gave them until [Monday], April 6th to file an answer,” Sweeney says. “[Cash Money] said they were going to challenge the venue, so at that point, it was a waste of time and money, so we all agreed that we would dismiss the action [in New York] and Wayne and [his record label] Young Money would re-file in New Orleans.”

“The claims previously asserted by Lil Wayne and Young Money LLC against Cash Money for substantial monies owed and breach of fiduciary duty have not been settled and will be prosecuted in Louisiana as expeditiously as possible,” added his team.
