ATLANTA — The man behind bars and charged with shooting Lil Wayne‘s tour bus now says Birdman was involved in the murder-for-hire plot.
Jimmy Winfrey told authorities that he should not be the one in jail when, in fact, “[Birdman’s] financial dispute with [Lil Wayne] is what ultimately led to the shooting,” TMZ reports.
So, Winfrey argues, “he should be held liable as a party to the crime.” He’s not specifically saying Birdman ordered the hit, but essentially that’s what he’s saying.
As previously reported, Lil Wayne’s tour bus was shot full of holes just as he was riding out from a performance in Atlanta back in April.
No one was injured and Birdman continues to maintain his innocence, despite indictment documents naming the Cash Money boss as being part of the plot to take out Lil Wayne.
