A rapper named Dirahn Gilliams claimed Weezy has illegally used portion of his song for the Grammy-winning single.

Lil Wayne is facing further legal action over his song "Lollipop" - a little-known rapper claims he should have been credited for writing portions of the hit. Pennsylvania-based rapper/musician Dirahn Gilliams is convinced his track "Grindin' Like a Goon", which was distributed to record industry executives in 2007, was the inspiration for Lil Wayne's Grammy-winning single, according to a lawsuit filed on Friday, April 30.

Gilliams has named Lil Wayne, writer Rez Zamor and producers Darius 'Deezle' Harrison and Jim Jonsin in the suit, alleging they illegally used parts of his song for "Lollipop". Gilliams is demanding an injunction to block further sales of "Lollipop" and "Tha Carter III", the album it appears on, as well as monetary damages and lost profits, reports AllHipHop.com.

The suit comes just a month after Jonsin took legal action against Wayne, alleging he has yet to receive any royalty payments for his work on "Lollipop". Meanwhile Harrison has also filed a multi-million dollar lawsuit over royalties from Wayne's track, "Mrs. Officer".

The hip-hop star began serving a year-long sentence at New York's Rikers Island prison in March after pleading guilty to gun possession charges.
