Lil Wayne Sued By Deezle For Unpaid Royalties

Date: March 2010

What happened? Producer Deezle sued Wayne for a whopping $20 million in March 2010 claiming he was owed royalties from his production work on six songs intended for Tha Carter III (“Lollipop,” “Mrs. Officer,” and “Let The Beat Build” as well as cuts that didn’t make the album, “Whip It,” “Prostitute 2,” and “Action”). The album reportedly made around $70 million following it’s release, rendering Deezle’s $20 million claim nearly a third of it’s total earnings.

Complex says: Damn, not only is Wayne wiling to G big name producers like Bangladesh and Jim Jonsin but also lesser known producers like Deezle. He’s an equal opportunity offender!
