Lil Wayne Settles $20 Million Deezle Lawsuit: Rapper Reaches Agreement With Producer
The epic legal battle Deezle v. Weezy has come to an end. According to TMZ, rapper Lil Wayne has settled out of court with Darius “Deezle” Harrison, the producer who filed a lawsuit in 2011 seeking $20 million for his contributions to the 2008 album Tha Carter III.
Details of the settlement have not been released, but according to the gossip site, the case has been dropped.
Wayne initially denied Deezle’s claims, but in a statement last April, the apparently wronged beatsmith predicted that things would turn out in his favor.
“At this time I am owed a sufficient amount of money and will protect the rights afforded me by the State of New York,” he said. “My team is of the opinion that the matter will be resolved in a timely fashion.”
