Lil Wayne facing another Lawsuit over "Tha Carter III"

Lil Wayne officially became the most popular rapper in the game when he released Tha Carter III. The album was met with positive reviews and solidified Wayne as a force in the game. While the album helped advance Lil Wayne's career, it has also been the source of much stress.

Since the release of the album, several producers of the opus have sued over unpaid royalties. Aside from "Lollipop," Lil Wayne scored another hit with "Got Money." The T-Pain assisted track was also a major hit during the summer of 2008. Play-N-Skillz famously produced the single.

Now, the production duo is suing the Young Money frontman for nearly $1 million over unpaid royalties. The song has been in radio rotation for nearly three years. Despite all of the radio spins and downloads, no money has reached Play-N-Skillz, the ones who put the song together. Nearly everyone who provided tracks for Tha Carter III have sued for not being paid.
