Lil Wayne To Be Served Summons In Jail For Copyright Infringement After Failing To Pay Producer Of « Mrs Officer ». 3rd Producer On ‘Tha Carter III’ To Not Get Paid

10 Oct

You would think that Lil Wayne being in jail would give him a break from drama in the outside world, but that’s not the case.

Boombox is reporting that Weezy is about to be served a summons to appear in federal court for failure to pay Atlanta producer Mali Boy.

Mali claims he has not received payment for the song « Mrs Officer » that appeared on the multi platinum selling ‘Tha Carter III’ album.

This lawsuit comes on the heels of Bangladesh’s claim that he hasn’t been paid for « A Milli ». And even more recently « Lollipop » producer Jim Jonsin told AllHipHop he hasn’t seen a dime for his work either.

« We’re still trying to get paid. Clearly, I don’t understand what the issue is. They sold the record, they’ve collected the checks, they’ve even gotten huge advances, they’re buying Bugattis, and spending all kinds of money. But the producers and people that created the songs are not getting paid. And so we’re going through some things now in hopes that it gets fixed. That thing was like the most downloaded song in history, so pay the people who made it. It’s not your record, it’s our record, » Jonsin said.

Clearly Cash Money is making a lot of money, so none of this makes sense. I’ve never heard of a label not paying this many different producers for their work.

Bangladesh has said recently he is going to put in some work on ‘Pink Friday’, Nicki Minaj’s debut album, but make no mistake he’s still trying collect what is owed to him.

« Everything is being worked out through the legal process, » he told BoomBox. « It’s really out of his control honestly. I mean he don’t run the label, he don’t own the label — he’s just on the label. »

Lil Wayne will be a free man November 5.
