Producer Darius “Deezle” Harrison claims Lil Wayne and his record labels, Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records, are past due on payments for his hit-making services.
MTV reports that Harrison has filed a $20 million lawsuit against them, claiming he’s yet to see the loot from co-crafting several jams on Weezy’s 2008 album Tha Carter III, including “Mrs. Officer,” “Let the Beat Build,” and the Grammy-winning Hot 100 chart-topper “Lollipop.”
$20 million is a ton of green. But considering the album’s sold six million copies to date, maybe it’s deserved? Probably not. He helped make the songs, but he wasn’t the producer on any of them. His asking price and lawsuit is likely one that will be settled for a far smaller amount. Time will tell.
What do you think of Harrison’s suit? Let us know in the comments section below.
