Lil Wayne Releases “No Mercy” Song Through Cash Money
In the WTF moment of the day, Lil Wayne unleashes the full version of "No Mercy," the theme song to Fox Sports 1's Undisputed show. The head-scratching part of this is that Weezy put the song out through Cash Money Records.
Tunechi's chaotic relationship with Cash Money and Birdman is well-documented. Most recently, he confirmed that he will never work with Stunna ever again. Ironically, Wayne divulged that piece of info during an interview on Undisputed with Skip Bayless and Shannon Sharpe.
At one point, not too long ago, it seemed like Lil Wayne and Birdman had settled their differences and were on the road to reuniting. But it recent weeks, we’ve learned that the rift is still alive and well. Wayne is now claiming Baby spent $70 million of the $100 million advance they were supposed to share for the Young Money label.
And now, J. Prince has Wayne's back. The Houston-based, music industry veteran recently told TMZ, “Where [Wayne] is weak, I am strong. He has gained an ally, and together we will get back all money owed to him and my son off the Drake albums.” J. Prince’s son, Jas, is widely credited for discovering Drake and connecting him with Wayne and Young Money. J Prince adds, “I witnessed the hard work that went into Drake’s career and for Cash Money to try and take something that isn’t theirs to take, does not sit well with me and family around the world.”
So, why is Wayne suddenly releasing "No Mercy" through Cash Money? Has this track and its manner of release been in the works for a long time now? Keep it locked to XXL as more info about this story emerges. Until then, you can listen to the song below.
