"Lollipop" Producer Deezle Speaks On His Lawsuit Against Lil Wayne

The producer is seeking $20 million dollars from the rapper and his label.

In March of this year Deezle, the man who produced Lil Wayne’s hit “Lollipop”, filed suit against the New Orleans rapper and his Young Money/Cash Money label seeking $20 million. In the suit Deezle claimed that he was owed unpaid royalties from sales of the single and its parent album, Tha Carter III. Now, according to AllHipHop.com, Deezle has issued a statement regarding his lawsuit.

He says, in part, “After consultation with my team I have decided to make a statement as it relates to the litigation pending against Cash Money and Young Money. At this time I am owed a sufficient amount of money and will protect the rights afforded me by the State of New York. My team is of the opinion that the matter will be resolved in a timely fashion.” Deezle, born Darius Harrison, is also seeking $2.5 million in owed royalties for another Tha Carter III track he produced, “Mrs. Officer.”

In Deezle’s suit he states that Tha Carter III has sold six million copies, amounting to over $70 million dollars in revenue. Deezle won three Grammy’s for his work with Lil Wayne. Neither Wayne nor any of his representatives have commented on this new statement.

    Regardless of the situation, CMYMB needs to pay people up. There is too much on the internet going on right now and in the past showing how they don't pay people in time and properly. It may be a hustle to them, but without tracks like "A Millie" , "Lollipop" and "6 foot 7" Wayne probably couldn't progress like he is today. Just doesn't seem like a good rep to have when you're looked at as one of the top dogs in the game today. You would figure that they would know this by now after Mannie Fresh... Wayne really needs to just go to that Drought 2 vibe again and its game over!

    I can't believe people don't know who Deezle is. Deezle actually produced 3 tracks on Tha Carter III, and was shout out by Wayne on tracks all the time. They should all go consult Bangladesh, he must have gotten straight since he gave Wayne 6 foot 7 foot. I would have to imagine that the Kanye's and Swizz's definately didn't get paid. What about David Banner? I remember an interview with him and Wayne saying that they gonna eat for a long time. I doubt David saw anything. What about Alchemist? Neither him - and all the guests...I would love to know about them. CMYMB need to pay people.

    Pay money where it is owed - plain and simple. First 'A Milli', now 'Lollipop' and 'Mrs. Officer'...how do these guys sell so many records and then not pay their producers? Half the reason a track is hot is because of the beat...pay this dude Wayne c'mon you are a better man than that.
