Lil Wayne starts to settle Tha Carter III disputes


Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne has settled two of the four (by our maths) lawsuits that stemmed from his 2008 album ‘Tha Carter III’.

First up, TMZ is reporting that Wayne’s legal reps have just settled with producer and songwriter David Kirkwood, who sued last June claiming he was owed $1.5 million for royalties and “production services” in relation to the track ‘Love Me Or Hate Me’.

The gossip site also reckons that last month a similar out of court agreement was reached with Darius ‘Deezle’ Harrison, who also sued claiming he was still owed money for work on the same album.

Terms of both deals are not known.
