Lil Wayne will soon be heading to jail for a year but the New Orleans rapper may now have to face a judge for another reason. Weezy is being sued by The Royalty Network on behalf of Darius Harrison (better known as "Deezle") for unpaid royalties for his "Mrs Officer" track from his 2008 "Tha Carter III" album. The lawsuit says Deezle owns the rights to the profits from ring tones, music videos, streaming media (etc) and they made it official by filing suit yesterday in a Manhattan Federal court.
In related news, Lil Wayne is trying to sell his multi-million dollar Miami condominium. The four-bedroom pad located in South Beach is currently being listed for $2.8 million. In a recent interview with Tim Westwood, Weezy denied rumors (posted by the New York Post) that he was having problems selling the place due to its smell of marijuana. "We’re not having trouble selling it…The people that are coming to look at it like that more about it. That’s like coming into Bob Marley’s crib and you still smelling weed and his bed still messed up. They’re like ‘leave all that shit. I want to buy all that.’ I’m one of those niggas right now."
