Fool a concert promoter once, shame on you. Allegedly fool a concert promoter three times -- you're getting sued.

Birdman -- the guy who runs Cash Money records -- is being sued for allegedly taking $275,000 to put on a Lil' Wayne concert in Miami ... and then backing out over and over again. Now the promoter wants his money back.

But the best part of the suit, filed today in L.A. Superior Court, is that Birdman is accused of backing out of one of the shows because "the weather was too cold." In Miami.

Meanwhile, Birdman was photographed giving Lil Wayne a briefcase filled with a million dollars in cash last week. Makes ya wonder...

How f-ing pathetic...these morons, who can barely speak English, have no education, and do nothing for society, are millionaires. Thanks MTV and TMZ! You want to know what is wrong with America, that's it!

It's definately drug money.

He should be in jail for his previous drug bust. Here is the article from it.

Felony drugs charges were filed against New Orleans rapper Lil' Wayne today (Jan. 25), just days after Weezy posted over $10,000 bond.
The charges were filed earlier today (Jan. 25) by the Yuma County Attorney's Office in justice court in Wellton, Arizona. Weezy was charged with one count each of possession of dangerous drugs, possession of a narcotic drug for sale, misconduct involving weapons and a count of possession of drug paraphernalia.

As previously reported, Weezy was nabbed on Tuesday, Jan. 22 around 11:30 p.m. in Yuma County, Ariz. after a Border Patrol dog alerted agents to the presence of illegal drugs on his bus. A search of the vehicle turned up 105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of ecstasy and $22,000 belonging to the rapper.

105 grams of marijuana, 29 grams of cocaine, 41 grams of ecstasy?!!! And he isn't in jail??!!!

What the hell??

He should donate some of that money to the people in his "hood" that still don't have a home in New Orleans. Or perhaps some vocal lessons so he doesn't have to use techno background to make him sound marketable. Or better yet, he should take his money and get that penis tattoo removed from between his eyebrows.

Look no one really knows what that money is for and where it came from but I have a feeling that if Birdman did you Lil Wayne to get the money Lil Wayne is gonna be P*ssed cause he has sooo much going for him right now and alls this is gonna do is mess it up. If I was Lil Wayne I'd get rid of Birdman he don't need him he's trouble
