    Lil Wayne has been one of Cash Money’s flagship stars since he signed with the label at age 12, and for years he saw Williams as a father figure, frequently dubbing himself “Birdman Jr.” on record. But that relationship has broken down, perhaps irreparably. Wayne tells Rolling Stone that he and Birdman are no longer on speaking terms. “I have no words,” he says. “I’m super-numb to it, to tell you the truth.”

    It’s 2 p.m. Miami time when Rolling Stone reaches the rapper by phone last week. But Wayne is just waking up and is understandably prickly about discussing the lawsuit. “That’s a legal matter, homeboy,” he says. As for the “I am a prisoner” tweet from December, he tries to play it off with a sex joke at first: “I love being a prisoner in some pussy. That’s what I meant.” After we talk some more, he admits that the legal wrangling has been weighing on his mind. “I’m human,” he says. “But it’s nothing that a good blunt can’t cure.”

    Wayne says that Tha Carter V, which he finished recording some time ago, is on ice for now. “It’s super-done,” he says. “Cake baked, icing on top, name on top, candles lit. I would have released it yesterday if I could. But it’s a dead subject right now. It’s a jewel in the safe. It’s that stash-house money.”

    In the meantime, he’s been putting in 12-hour studio shifts on an all-new project: the cleverly titled The Free Weezy Album, which he plans to release for free in March. “I’m working on it every day, man,” he says. “I guarantee it’s going to be something dope. If you don’t want a musician being creative, don’t get The Free Weezy Album.”
