Lil Wayne has settled a $1.5 million lawsuit with a producer who accused the rapper of failing to pay him for work on his 2008 album Tha Carter Iii.
David Kirkwood launched a legal battle against the hitmaker and bosses at Cash Money Records and Young Money Entertainment last year, alleging he was still owed royalties from the track Love Me or Hate Me.
But the How to Love hitmaker and his lawyers finally reached an agreement with Kirkwood this week and together they settled the case out of court, according to
This marks the second suit he has resolved in recent weeks – Lil Wayne reached a confidential settlement with Grammy winner Darius Harrison in April after he claimed he was owed money for contributions to the same album.
