Even though Lil Wayne is still incarcerated at New York’s Rikers Island prison, his name is continuing to be brought up in lawsuits.
As previously reported, producer Jim Jonsin sued Weezy for his triple platinum hit “Lollipop “claiming that he was owed over $500,000 in unpaid royalties.
Now another lawsuit for “Lollipop” has surfaced, this time from an up and coming Philly rapper.
Dirahn Gilliams filed a lawsuit April 29 against Wayne, Cash Money Records, Universal Music Group, Young Money Entertainment, producer Darius “Deezle” Harrison, James “Jim Jonsin” Scheffer and Rex Zamoor for copyright infringement.
According to the lawsuit, portions of Gilliams’ song “Grinding Like A Goon” were used to make Wayne’s “Lollipop.”
The rapper says he sent over the music to producers Jonsin and Deezle who used it alongside Rex Zamoor for Lil Wayne’s 2008 hit.
Gilliams filed a demand for trial and a summons for all the defendants listed.
Producer Darius “Deezle” Harrison is also suing Wayne for $2.5 million in unpaid royalties for his hit single “Mrs. Officer.”
