Beyonce London, May 10 (ANI): Rapper Lil Wayne has been sued by the producer behind his 2007 hit single ‘A Milli’ over alleged unpaid royalties.

According to, producer Bangladesh, real name Shondrae Crawford, alleges he is owed 333,333 pounds by Wayne’s record label Cash Money.

And he is adamant the only way he will get what he is reportedly owed is by taking legal action.

“Cash Money don’t pay royalties. (Wayne’s 2008 album) Tha Carter III (is) his biggest album probably because of A Milli. You have to sue these guys so that they pay up…,” the Daily Star quoted him as saying.

“All the money from album sales goes to Cash Money. I get cheques from Sony for Beyonce, checks from different labels for different artists, it just comes to you.

“You don’t have to call them, sue them and all that junk. This is what you’re owed,” he added.

Wayne, 27, is currently also facing legal action from Pennsylvania-based rapper/musician Dirahn Gilliams over his Lollipop track, and from producer Jim Jonsin for royalty payments for his work on Lollipop.

And producer Darius ‘Deezle’ Harrison has also filed a multi-million pound lawsuit over royalties from Wayne’s track, Mrs. Officer.

The hip-hop star began serving a year-long sentence at New York’s Rikers Island prison in March this year after pleading guilty to gun possession charges. (ANI)
