Lil Wayne, who has had his fair share of legal woes, will be served a complaint for copyright infringement and a federal court summons before he even gets out of New York’s Rikers Island prison.
Atlanta based producer Michael ‘Mali Boi’ Bradford filed a suit alleging the hip-hop star did not pay him royalties he is owed for his work on Wayne’s single Mr. Officer.
Bradford claims he came up with the beat five years before it was reconfigured by Deezle, who was given producer’s credit for the track.
And, while the beat goes on, apparently it does not pay — Deezle has also filed suit against Wayne for not receiving royalty payments for the beat.
Weezy is serving a year- long sentence that began in March after taking a plea deal on gun possession charges.
