Lil Wayne Sued (Again) for $1 Million Dollars Over Unpaid “Carter III” Royalties + Photos of Him Performing at the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival
Lil Wayne has been sued again over unpaid royalties related to his platinum-selling 2008 album “Tha Carter III.”
Dallas producers Play-N-Skillz filed a lawsuit against Weezy in court this week, claiming that the Grammy award winning rapper owes them at least $1 million or more dollars in unpaid royalties for “Got Money,” which ended up being a huge hit for Wayne when it was released in May 2008. “Got Money” served as Lil Wayne’s third single from “Tha Carter III” and has sold over 2 million copies since being released.
Earlier this week, another producer named David Kirkwood filed a lawsuit against Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records on claims that the labels have failed to pay him over $1.5 million dollars in royalties and production services for his work on “Tha Carter III.” And just this past March, yet another producer (Darius “Deezle” Harrison), sued the rapper and his parent labels over unpaid royalties from the same album.
Producer Bangladesh also filed a lawsuit against Weezy & Co. in May 2010 over unpaid royalties as well.
In much lighter news, Lil Wayne closed out Day 2 of the Bonnaroo Music & Arts Festival in Tennessee last night (Fri. Jun 10) with a show-stopping set that featured all of his hits, including “A Milli,” “Got Money,” “I’m Going In,” “Lollipop” and more. He also performed a few Carter IV tracks, like “6 Foot, 7 Foot” and “How to Love.” Check out a few pics from Weezy’s performance below:
