Lil Wayne Sued By "Lollipop" Producer For $20 Million For Unpaid Royalties

Following Bangladesh and Jim Jonsin's suits, another "Carter III" hit-maker says that he hasn't been paid.

A producer by the name of Deezle, real name Darius Harrison, is in the process of suing rapper Lil Wayne for several tracks Deezle produced for the rapper’s Tha Carter III album.

According to TMZ.com, Deezle claims that he’s owed money for producing the following Tha Carter III tracks: “Lollipop,” “Whip It,” “Prostitute 2,” “Action,” “Mrs. Officer,” and “Let The Beat Build.”

The New Orleans producer states that he’s owed an impressive $20 million, close to a third of the $70 million Tha Carter III made following its release.

Aside from Lil Wayne Deezle has also worked with Yung Joc, Birdman, Tito Puente, Drake, Teena Marie, and more.

Deezle’s lawsuit isn’t the only lawsuit against Lil Wayne that stems from his Tha Carter III album. Producer Jim Jonsin, who co-produced "Lollipop," also sued Lil Wayne and Young Money after not being paid for his contributions on the album. And months after Tha Carter III’s release Lil Wayne was forced to drop the track “Playing With Fire” from the album because of its similarity to the Rolling Stones’ “Play With Fire.”
