So for me it’s about being able to help out where help is needed.”
Jim Jonsin, the producer responsible for hits like Soulja Boy’s “Kiss Me Through The Phone” and T.I.’s “Whatever You Like”, is filing a lawsuit against incarcerated rapper Lil Wayne.

Jonsin appeared in a Manhattan Federal courtroom Tuesday representing his company Rebel Rock Productions to file the formal lawsuit against Wayne’s Young Money imprint.
According to court documents, Jonsin—real name Mark Schaffer, says the song has garnered more than 4 million downloads and more than $4 million in ringtone sales.
He therefore is entitled to at least $500,000 of that which he says he never recieved.
Lollipop helped Lil Wayne’s “Tha Carter III” sell over 3.2 million copies and earned him a Grammy for “Rap Record Of The Year.”
Lil Wayne is continuing to serve his one year prison sentence at New York’s Riker’s Island.
