Earlier this week Forbes named Lil Wayne as the 4th biggest earner in Hip-Hop bringing in a reported $20 million in the last 12 months.

Well apparently, Weezy thinks the number should be higher, by at least 375K.

The incarcerated rapper and his company Young Money Touring Inc has filed a lawsuit against a former booking agent claiming that they stole $375,000 in tour money.

According to the lawsuit filed by Lil Wayne’s lawyers on August 16, the company Ujaama Talent Agency Inc. and the company’s owners, Erskine Isaac, David Nelson  organized and scheduled tours on a non-exclusive basis for the rapper since the infancy of his career.

Wayne participated in four tours with Ujaama between 2008 and January 2010, after which a disagreement occurred between the two companies over money for the “America’s Most Wanted Music Festival” tours in Summer and Winter of 2009.

The lawsuit goes on to claim that Lil Wayne again dealt with Ujaama in October 2009 to book a national tour before his Riker’s Island stint.

But, according to the suit, Isaac and Nelson “elected to divert to Ujaama’s own bank account an amount not less than $375,000,” the sum that Isaac and Nelson maintain is owed to Ujaama for the tours in question.

According to Wayne’s lawyer, the couple then refused to give the money back on numerous occasions, resulting in the lawsuit.

As previously reported, a lawsuit was brought against Lil Wayne last week by his former manager Melissa Philipian claiming that she is owed $500,000 in commissions, plus 15 percent of his total earnings, after being fired by Wayne the year prior.
