Kirkwood’s suit, filed in New York Southern District Court last week, does not make mention of Lil Wayne. His work on the album included songwriting on the track “Love Me or Hate Me,” which was featured on the deluxe edition of the LP.
Kirkwood is the latest producer to work on TC3 who has sued for unpaid royalties. In 2007, Bangladesh (“A Milli”) claimed he was stiffed for his work, and Darius “Deezle” Harrison followed suit in March who is seeking $20 million. [June 7]
UPDATE: Lil Wayne has settled another lawsuit stemming from unpaid royalties from Tha Carter III. According to TMZ, Weezy worked out the suit with producer David Kirkwood out of court for an undisclosed amount.
