Lil Wayne Sued By Producer Mali Boi For Copyright Infringement

Date: April 2009

What happened? Michael Bradford, aka Mali Boi, sued Lil Wayne for copyright infringement over The Carter III track “Mrs. Officer.” According to Bradford, the track began as his own song, titled “Crush.” But then it was reworked by Wayne’s collaborator Deezle and released without any credit or compensation going to Mali Boy.

Complex says: We guess karma caught up to Deezle if he did help Wayne steal Mali Boi’s beat because next thing you know, Deezle was suing Wayne for non-payment.
