lil wayne sued for 20 million dollars

And things were starting to look up for Weezy!

Producer Darius "Deezle" Harrison has filed a $20 million lawsuit against Lil Wayne's Young Money Entertainment and Cash Money Records, claiming he hasn't gotten paid for sales of Weezy's Lollipop, as well as Tha Carter III, the album it was featured on.

Deezle previously sued Weezy for "unpaid royalties" from sales of Mrs. Officer.

Hope you're able to work everything out, Wayne! You've got a lot of exciting stuff on the horizon.

A J. Lo collaboration and a tour with Nicki Minaj? It's exciting times in the house of Weezy…aside from the whole 20 million dollar lawsuit, that is…

Do U think Lil Wayne is in the wrong here? Or do U think Deezle is just looking for a payday?
