Lil Wayne Sued By "Lollipop" Producer For $20 Million For Unpaid Royalties

Following Bangladesh and Jim Jonsin's suits, another "Carter III" hit-maker says that he hasn't been paid.

A producer by the name of Deezle, real name Darius Harrison, is in the process of suing rapper Lil Wayne for several tracks Deezle produced for the rapper’s Tha Carter III album.

According to, Deezle claims that he’s owed money for producing the following Tha Carter III tracks: “Lollipop,” “Whip It,” “Prostitute 2,” “Action,” “Mrs. Officer,” and “Let The Beat Build.”

The New Orleans producer states that he’s owed an impressive $20 million, close to a third of the $70 million Tha Carter III made following its release.

Aside from Lil Wayne Deezle has also worked with Yung Joc, Birdman, Tito Puente, Drake, Teena Marie, and more.

Deezle’s lawsuit isn’t the only lawsuit against Lil Wayne that stems from his Tha Carter III album. Producer Jim Jonsin, who co-produced "Lollipop," also sued Lil Wayne and Young Money after not being paid for his contributions on the album. And months after Tha Carter III’s release Lil Wayne was forced to drop the track “Playing With Fire” from the album because of its similarity to the Rolling Stones’ “Play With Fire.”

    anndddddd i love calling people out on stupid bullshit so here goes. Lollipop was produced by Jim Jonsin, Prostitute 2 and Whip It was not on the Carter 3. and he CO produced Let the Beat Build with Lil Wayne so what kind of producer is he anyways. Just sayin

    • Anonymous

    • @Bom919 #FAIL

      "anndddddd i love calling people out on stupid bullshit so here goes" and yet everything u posted is completely wrong lmao. embarassing!!! and since no one mentioned it yet, Prostitute 2 was an the itunes bonus track and Whip it was part of the deluxe edition. F for the day, u fail

    • crazy

      Lollipop was co-produced by jim jonsin and Deezle, Let the beat build was co-procuced by Kanye west and Deezle and just because prostitute 2 and whip didn't make the album does not mean he doesn't deserve to get paid for producing the beats

      lil wayne sucks cornholes

  • Bom919

    damn Deezle was Waynes main producer for the album. im surprised Wayne did that. but The Carter 4's gonna be bangin but he needs to build his hype back up alot more. personally i miss the 08 Wayne

    • ready or not

      fuck the 08 wayne! we want the 04-07 Lil Wayne! shit i'll even take the one from the Sqad Up dayz over the tight jeans, tight v-necks with sum vans wayne we got now. his flow was way better back in those days. I guess its cuz Gillie was writing his rhymes for him, now we got gay ass Drake writing his rhymes and his flow, thats why nicki, drake, wayne, and all those other half breeds on young money all have that wack ass flow with 50-100 not so clever metaphors in each song

  • The Ooh Child

    I guess weezy will need to dip in to his male hooker and ecstasy budget to pay this nigga off

  • So now we found out how...

    how Birdman and Lil Wayne got so much money, motherfuckers don't pay people for shit they make millions off of. sleezy ass bitches.

  • Matt Tompkins

    Deezle is a shitty producer, it says in the liner notes for half of those songs he did the drums, and they were cliche bullshit rhythms.

  • Gucci

    You idiots do realize that this is a bs lawsuit right? he's just making up stuff to get paid outside of court... haha you fools will believe anything you hear... ahhahaah

  • SMH

    Dude has seven production credits on the album and bonus tracks.. 20M is about right considering what the album sold. Lollipop was the biggest selling single on that album and it had placements everywhere, movies, commercials, tv, etc. Don't be a BIRD man, Birdman!
