Yesterday afternoon, Lil Wayne shocked all of Hip Hop by denouncing his longtime mentor, Birdman, and Cash Money Records for repeatedly delaying the release of his highly anticipated album, Tha Carter V. The tweets in question have already sparked countless memes and reactions from fans and rap peers alike, including Pusha T, Trinidad James and Weezy's "Faded" collaborator, Tyga, who also publicly took up issue with the label just weeks before the "Believe Me" rapper followed suit.

Fans have been speculating as to what is the real reason behind the beef, with many believing it's no more than a publicity stunt. Others believe the New Orleans spitter is planning to go indie, a popular choice for many MC's nowadays. The theories are both serious and hilarious, but only time will tell if the reasons Wayne gave are the only factors, or if there's a bigger plan at work here.
