Lil Wayne Sued By Jim Jonsin For Unpaid Royalties
Date: April 2010
What happened? Weezy’s time in jail at New York’s Rikers Island didn’t stop the lawsuits from rolling in. Jim Jonsin sued the rapper for $500,000 claiming that he had yet to receive royalty payments from the production he did on “Lollipop.” According to Jonsin, the two were able to settle the lawsuit with Wayne paying Jonsin in installments spanning from December of 2010 through the second quarter of 2011.
Complex says: You have to hand it to Wayne for having the balls to do something like this. It’s not like he stiffed a random producer for an album cut. He stiffed the dude who produced one of his biggest songs ever.
