T-Pain Suing Lil Wayne Over ‘Tha Carter III’ Royalties

Published November 1, 2017

T-Pain and Lil Wayne made some smash hits together back in the early 2000’s. Unfortunately for Weezy, the Nappy Boy crooner claims he has yet to be paid for some of them.

According to TMZ.com, T-Pain’s Nappy Boy Productions filed a lawsuit against Weezy’s Young Money claiming that he’s owed up $500,000 for contributions to Wayne’s 2008’s Tha Carter III.

T-Pain claims he produced and appeared on Wayne’s “Got Money,” while his artist Young Fyre, produced “How To Hate” on Wayne’s Tha Carter IV. Per court documents obtained by TMZ, T-Pain believes there should be a “bundle” because Tha Carter III sold more than 3.2 million copies in the US alone.

While T-Pain is seeking money from Lil Wayne and Young Money, the rapper’s embroiled in a legal dispute of his own. Lil Wayne sued Brian ‘Birdman’ Williams for $51 million in 2015 accusing Cash Money records of violating his deal and delaying his Carter V album.
