Lil Wayne Faces $20 Million Lawsuit From ‘Lollipop’ Producer Deezle
Lil Wayne has seen better days. This week, the rapper found out he is being sued from hip-hop producer Darius Harrison, aka Deezle.
The $20 million lawsuit against Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records claims that Deezle has not received his paper from the sales of Wayne’s hit ‘Lollipop’ and ‘Tha Carter III,’ the album the tune was featured on.
According to TMZ, Deezle is entitled to his cut of royalties on the reported $70 million that the album has grossed on the sales of six million copies. ‘Lollipop’ also topped the Billboard Hot 100 chart in 2009 and took home a Grammy for Best Rap Song that same year.
This is not the first lawsuit Deezle has inflicted upon Wayne. He previously sued Wayne for $2.5 million over what he claimed were unpaid royalties from the sales of ‘Mrs. Officer,’ another tune which he produced for the artist.
Wayne, Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records have yet to release a statement regarding the lawsuit.
