What is the world coming to when Birdman is being accused of stiffing a producer on payment checks? Surely an upstanding music mogul such as the #1 Stunna would always make sure those checks clear on time, no?

New York City producer, DVLP, who has been shooting Lil Wayne beats dating as far back as Tha Carter II (“Fireman,” “Hit ‘Em Up,”) is suing Baby for not getting paid for his work and he has the text messages to prove it.

Via TMZ:

Birdman is accused of using the social media version of “The check’s in the mail” to blow off Lil Wayne’s producer who is now suing him for a fortune.

The producer — who goes by DVLP — had his people make various demands that Birdman and Cash Money cough up $200,000 for work he did on albums for Wayne and other artists.

Birdman’s response shows the new frontier in blowing off creditors. Forget a lawyer’s letter … Birdman is all about texting DVLP to hold him at bay.

Some of the texts …

— “I’m getting yu paid”

— “I’m working with yu fam”

— “You gone get tht 200k”

— “s**t GETTIN don”

Apparently it didn’t, because DVLP is taking it to a judge.

Most recently, DVLP has his work featured on the lawsuit-embroiled Free Weezy album and he also did extensive work on the shelved Lil Wayne and Juelz Santana I Can’t Feel My Face project.

Beats don’t pay for themselves. At this point, every Cash Money artist should be rhyming a capella because the only way the producers achieve notoriety is through a lawsuit.
