Lil Wayne Sued By Jim Jonsin Over Royalties

Producer Jim Jonsin sues Lil Wayne and says he hasn't received royalties for his work on Weezy's "Lollipop."

Lil Wayne is behind bars, currently serving time in New York's Rikers Island, but the lawsuits keep coming his way. After being sued by Karma-Ann Swanepoel for sampling "Once" on "I Feel Like Dying," and Darius "Deezle" Harrison for royalties on "Mrs. Officer," the Young Money star is also being sued by producer Jim Jonsin for royalties from "Lollipop."

According to the New York Post, Jonsin is suing for $500,000. Jonsin is claiming he has yet to receive any royalties for work on one of Lil Wayne's biggest singles.

This isn't the first time Jonsin and Wayne have been involved in a dispute. When Weezy was sued by Swanepoel a year ago, he shifted the blame towards Jonsin for not clearing the sample.

    Damn, this mothafucka keeps getting in more and more shit. You make all this money and yet you can't pay your producers their royalties? It's no wonder BG, Turk, and all them left Cash Money, Birdman is a shady S.O.B. I can't wait till Lil Wayne get out of jail so I can hear what he gonna say in his songs. His weak ass gonna pretend like he went to jail for being a thug LMAO. Cash Money/Young Money is garbage.

  • Dj Lexx

    Its funny to listen to some of you...... "Now he's (Lil Wayne) gonna act like he's 2PAC cause he went to Riker's Island?" Its not about Tupac... and you think you are preempting Wayne's next move.. one guy says "Its too easy to see it coming and not only does that make him not original but it takes away that certain "true story" advantage that hip hop use to offer." Ok... So if T.I spoke about his experience in jail or made references it wouldnt be original either but the fact is, its HIS EXPERIENCE. If Wayne comes out and makes references to his jail time its HIS EXPERIENCE.. Who the fuck are we to say he isnt original for doing that? How does it take away from the "true story" aspect that hip hop used to offer? They fucking did go to jail, so they should be able to talk about it... Wayne will eventually have to pay up all the producers who have not received payment. Also you guys need to remember that Wayne is not the one who is making the decision to pay these guys or not, he has people who are in control of all of that so that he just focuses on rapping and making music. So even though Lil Wayne is being sued, its not directly his fault that these guys havent been paid. Understand how the business works before you make stupid comments.

    • miguel Guttierres

      @ DJ Lexx: What we mean by not original is that Lil Wayne is more than likely going to sound all angry and pissed off just like 2Pac did on All Eyez on Me. Pac actually sounded convincing on some of those songs, while Wayne going to come off sounding hilarious IF he does it. He may not do it, true, but it's a real high chance he will. He's notorious for stuff like that. Oh, and if you didn't notice, Wayne is trying desperately to be like Pac. He copies the picture of Pac in the straight jacket, calls himself "Weezyaveli" at times (pretty close to Makaveli), he ruined "Ambitionz az a Ridah", and now he's at Rikers. Why do you think he kept getting arrested so many times? Like Jesse J said in his post, too easy. I mean you can look up to Pac as inspiration, but don't copy his every single move. You're only tarnishing the image of a legendary rapper.

    • Jesse J.

      I guess you do have a point about Lil Wayne's not the one who takes those decisions or pays the producers but about the experience in jail, we mean that he's gonna act like he went to jail because hes a thug and he's even gonna make it look like he was doing time just like real dudes that do real time in a jail cell. He's gotta be isolated from the real thugs in jail. Hes basically in a hotel suite in jail right now. Only thing missing in there is pussy but hey we already know how he loves kissing men. Let Birdman tell you how he kisses men. I guess you didnt see 106 & Park when they kissed eachother in the mouth like true fags. He probably even wishes for a fuckin gay sell mate. He's no gangster. He's not a hustler or even a man. The difference between T.I. doing time & Lil Wayne is that Lil Wayne is actually enjoying it. U can never compare them. Lil Wayne is a colored clown. He should of been the girl in Avatar. Keep protecting him, you're probably a homo just like he is

    you guys are garbage for reading this article if you already know you dont like lil wayne. oh and thats what you call boss status when you can make money off of other people and not have to pay for it lmfao you fuckin losers, get money then see what YOU would be saying in that position.

    • miguel Guttierres

      "Get money"? We are getting money and we're happy with what we earn. It's called jobs and careers. Man, I hate this mentality from mainstream fans. Just because we say something different and SPEAKING OUR MINDS, you automatically assume we're being jealous and that we're broke. Get off that already.

    • kush nap

      how you any different fag boy? by your own logic, you not getting paid either. this is light work playboy, i clock doe and nut in your bitch, its nothin to a real nigga. i dont sweat what the next man got, worry about you fem boy. i swear these lil wayne fanatics are the gayest fanbase in hip hop, yall love the way he dresses, and what he does with his money, music is garbage. hot boys was hot, lil wayne been TRASH since carter 2. only niggas still jockin him wear girl pants and buy drake records. kill yaself.

    • Jesse J.

      I dont see why it makes us garbage if we read something. Oh yeah and some of us are getting money. Obviously the only one not getting money is Jimmy boy Jonsin lol. U look like the only one that likes him among all the people who read it so far. Fuck Lil wayne. Hes gonna rap about beeing at rikers island but he's probably in a room all by himself isolated from the real criminals. Plus, he's probably getting fucked up the ass by Rick Ross's security friends. lol. Hey lil wayne if u're really reading this from ur computer in jail right now, lemme know so I can come slap u up in person any day any time! hahahaha

  • Articulate1

    • ashanti

      THAT'S A VERY GAY COMMENT SOUND U WANT HIM TO THROW SOMETHING IN YOUR ASS AND DOWN YOUR THROAT!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!! FUCKING FAG

  • Jesse J.

    Jim's a great producer. He shouldnt associate himself with idiots like Lil Wayne. Im sure he learned a lesson since he's taking him to court. The only good thing about that lolipop song is the beat anyway. Other artists could of done much better with the beat. Other producers that worked, work or plan on working with Lil Wayne should keep in mind this situation where Jim didnt get paid and they should think twice before providing him with beats

  • kush nap

    jim jonsin is fuckin dope. "fried chicken" off of nas shit, and that "get it anyway" joint he did for cypress hill both crazy. wayne still gettin pimped by baby, baby micro managing his career like hes still a baby. pay up snake boy. jonsin got his own sound, good live elements, catchy, hes gonna be a problem.

  • Jesse J.

    I hate Lil Wayne. I cant stand his voice, his actions and what he represents. Lolipop is the worst hit song ever. I cant bellieve some guys like it. Maybe little girls but men? Its awfull. Now he's gonna act like he's 2PAC cause he went to Rikers Island? He reminds me of Ja Rule when he was doing all his love songs with Ashanti & J-Lo. Hey Lil Wayne!! You aint gonna murk shit when u come out. U're a bubble gum rapper. Pussy hole Pop Artist with tattoos and a fuckin ear breaking voice

    • ashanti

      WAYNE IS FROM THE N.O. SO HE COULD NEVER ACT LIKE TUPAC (R.I.P. TUPAC) HE HAS HIS OWN STYLE RESPECT It OR CHECK! THESE ARE SOME OF THE STUPIDEST COMMENTS I EVER HEARD MAKE SURE Y'ALL KEEP YA DAY IF YOU HAVE ONE BECAUSE Y'ALL SIMPLE

    • Jesse J.

      I know. It makes me sick. Its too obvious. Its too easy to see it coming and not only does that make him not original but it takes away that certain "true story" advantage that hip hop use to offer. Now, it's like "imitate the most popular rapper's life and true story" FUck! get your own life. Do you. Do LITTLE WAYNE not LITTLE PAC. 2PAC would destroy you if he was still alive. He would put Wayne to shame. He wouldnt even have a career right now. May he Rest In Peace. I wish another rapper would do 2PAC's dirty job destroying fake ass rappers.

    • miguel Guttierres

      "Now he's gonna act like he's 2PAC cause he went to Riker's Island?" My thoughts exactly. First, TI said he was going to be more angry and his album was going to be like All Eyez on Me. And we all know Wayne's going to do the exact same thing. Not original at all.

  • Click The Name for Good Music

    Damn Wayne made bank on that song, just pay the man. What's with him not paying his producers?!
