Lil Wayne's beef with Birdman doesn't look like it will simmer down any time soon.

The "Only" rapper is not only reportedly planning to leave Cash Money Records, but wants to take Nicki Minaj and Drake with him when he does, according to TMZ.

Sources told the site Lil Wayne is demanding millions from Birdman and plans to sue him to make sure all of his Young Money Entertainment artists stay on his label. Drake, Nicki, Christina Milian and Lil Twist are among artists signed to YME.

If Lil Wayne does actually pursue a lawsuit against his "dad," things could get even more complicated, considering Cash Money has a distribution deal with all of the artists signed to YME.

Songwriters Honored At 2013 BMI R&B/Hip-Hop Awards - CeremonyThe latest reported development in the Lil Wayne-Birdman saga comes nearly two months after Lil Wayne went on a Twitter rant blasting Birdman and Cash Money Records, telling fans why his Tha Carter V album hasn't been released yet.

"To all my fans, I want u to know that my album won't and hasn't been released bekuz Baby & Cash Money Rec. refuse to release it," he tweeted. "This is not my fault. I am truly and deeply sorry to all my fans but most of all to myself and my family for putting us in this situation. I want off this label and nothing to do with these people but unfortunately it ain't that easy."

In addition to his rant, Lil Wayne recently released the mixtape Sorry 4 the Wait 2, in which he put his issues with Birdman out there again, rapping on 'CoCo,' "I'm sorry for the wait... 'Tha Carter' gon' be late so I cooked up a tape...The garden's full of snakes so I had to escape." He also slams comparisons to Birdman specifically, rapping, "Birdman Jr? More like Ugly Duckling."
