Lil Wayne wants his old book of rhymes back, but the guy trying to sell it for $250k says the rapper’s just gonna have to buy it like anyone else.
As was reported … Tunechi’s 1999 notebook is being sold by Moments in Time for a quarter-million dollars, and the dude claiming ownership says he found it lodged in a car that once belonged to Cash Money Records.
Now Wayne’s feverishly trying to get his work back … his attorneys fired off a warning letter to Moments in Time, claiming Wayne’s the rightful owner, and the broker doesn’t have permission to sell or transfer the notebook to anyone.
In the letter, Wayne’s legal team says he never abandoned his notebook — he simply misplaced it and is thrilled it’s been found. Weezy’s team claims the guy who found it “absconded with the notebook” and hid it for years … waiting to cash in.
Gary Zimet, the owner of Moments in Time, is firing back … he says if the Young Money honcho wants the notebook, he’ll have to pony up, because the guy who found it “has crystal clear title.”
Not to be outdone — Wayne’s threatening legal action if Moments in Time doesn’t stop the sale.
