Lil Wayne Sued By Jim Jonsin Over Royalties
Producer Jim Jonsin sues Lil Wayne and says he hasn't received royalties for his work on Weezy's "Lollipop."Lil Wayne is behind bars, currently serving time in New York's Rikers Island, but the lawsuits keep coming his way. After being sued by Karma-Ann Swanepoel for sampling "Once" on "I Feel Like Dying," and Darius "Deezle" Harrison for royalties on "Mrs. Officer," the Young Money star is also being sued by producer Jim Jonsin for royalties from "Lollipop."
According to the New York Post, Jonsin is suing for $500,000. Jonsin is claiming he has yet to receive any royalties for work on one of Lil Wayne's biggest singles.
This isn't the first time Jonsin and Wayne have been involved in a dispute. When Weezy was sued by Swanepoel a year ago, he shifted the blame towards Jonsin for not clearing the sample.
