Before starting his one year bid in jail, Lil Wayne is seeing his name brought up in court papers once again.

Dwayne Michael Carter Jr.’s been hit with a copyright infringement lawsuit over his 2008 hit song “Mrs. Officer” from his Carter III album.

Music publishing company The Royalty Network and record producer Darius (Deezle) Harrison claim that they owned the rights to the composition of the song.

Furthermore, Royalty and Harrison say they owned rights to any profits from ring tones, music videos or streaming media.

They filed their claim in a New York court room Wednesday and are seeking $2.5 million damages.

In between dealing with the lawsuit, Wayne is still preparing to start his jail sentence at Riker’s Island.

As previously reported his sentencing was postponed so that he could have a cracked tooth fixed by his dentist.

He’s scheduled to appear in court again March 2.
