Today has already been a hectic day for Cash Money Records, as marquee artist Lil Wayne set Twitter ablaze by detailing his frustrations with the label. Specifically, he called out Cash Money for holding back his upcoming album, Tha Carter V, which has suffered several delays over the last few months. It most recently received a firm release date for Dec. 9, before Wayne explained the situation taking place behind closed doors.
Fellow Young Money/Cash Money artist Tyga voiced his support for Wayne following his Twitter remarks, which makes sense given Tyga’s own issues with the record label back in October, in which he threatened to leak his album, The Gold Album: 18th Dynasty.
Now, Tyga has stated his album will be released independently:
#TheGoldAlbum is going to be my first independent release 2015

This goes against information given to fans following Tyga’s outburst a few months back, in which the 25-year-old Compton rapper announced his album would be released Dec. 23. If his latest update is in fact true, this would mean Tyga finally got his wish and severed ties with Young Money/Cash Money. Complex will keep you up to date on the status of this story.
