Lil Wayne Hit With Another Lawsuit
Just when you thought Lil Wayne‘s legal woes were almost at an end, it was reported yesterday that the rapper is being sued:
Weezy will be served a complaint for copyright infringement and a federal court summons before he gets out of prison.
This time, a producer is filing copyright infringement for a beat that another producer has already claimed he wasn’t paid for. Confused?
Atlanta based producer Michael “Mali Boi” Bradford is alleging that he failed to receive royalties payments for his work on Wayne’s single “Mr. Officer.”
Bradford alleges that he originally made the beat five years before it was later reconfigured by producer, Deezle, who was given producer’s credit for the track.
Strangely, Deezle has also filed suit with Wayne for not receiving royalty payments for the same beat.
Cash Money Records has yet to comment on the suit, but agreed to hold on royalty payments received from digital downloads, retail singles and ringtones until the two parties could agree on a solution.
Lil Wayne has also asked fans to stop sending letters during his last month in prison, via his twitter account @Liltunechi:
“I can no longer write my fans. As difficult as this maybe to say please stop sending me mail. I luv you and will see you soon.”
He will be in solitary confinement until his release date, Novemer 4th, after violating Riker’s Island rules by using an mp3 charger and headphones in May.
