Lil Wayne Sued by "Lollipop" Producer for $500,000 over Unpaid Royalties
Published Apr 22, 2010As if serving a year-long prison sentence wasn't enough, Lil Wayne has even more legal troubles to worry about. The incarcerated rapper has been served with a $500,000 lawsuit related to unpaid royalties over his "Lollipop" single.
According to AllHipHop, producer Jim Jonsin is claiming that he hasn't received a penny for the smash single, despite a co-writing credit on the track. "Lollipop" was the lead single for Wayne's 2008 album Tha Carter III, which moved a whopping 2.88 million units.
Jonsin has previously written popular singles for artists like T.I., Jamie Foxx and Soulja Boy. We sincerely hope that this case requires a lot of time before a judge, if only so we can see what sort of hilarious high jinks Wayne and his cohorts cause in the courtroom.
Lil Wayne started his year-long prison term last month. If you'd like to keep up with him, you can stay glued to his jailhouse blog.
