Arguably, one of the biggest stories in hip-hop last year is when Lil Wayne said he wanted to leave Cash Money Records. He then sued the label and his boss, Birdman, for a whopping $51 million.

How did the the New Orleans spitter come at that large amount? Thankfully, Reggie Ossé, otherwise known as Combat Jack, explained it all in a video courtesy of Complex magazine. You see, before he became a prominent hip-hop writer and podcaster, Ossé was an entertainment layer who negotiated major contracts for artists like Jay Z and Nore.

In the video, he explains that Weezy actually negotiated his contract with Cash Money several times. First in January 2005, then again in 2006 and once again three years later in 2009. Each negotiation had to do with higher royalties, more money for Wayne when he does duet albums and higher advances.
