LIL WAYNE STREAMS ALBUM

Rapper Lil Wayne last Saturday put out a new album as a streaming exclusive amid a dispute with his label.

He said he was distributing FWA exclusively on Tidal, the streaming service which he co-owns. But he has yet to release the repeatedly delayed Tha Carter V, which he has hinted would be his final album.

He has accused his label Cash Money, run by his former mentor Bryan "Birdman" Williams, of withholding the album as well as payments.
