Play-N-Skillz: We Still Haven't Been Paid For "Tha Carter 3" Work

Though they say they harbor no hard feelings toward Lil' Wayne, production duo Playa-N-Skillz are still going to the media about not being paid for the work they did on the rapper's wildly popular album Tha Carter 3.
"It's not officially settled, but I'm going to say we took massive steps forward to get everything resolved," they revealed in an interview with Real Talk NY. "There was never really a lawsuit, I don't know where that one really [went] left field. We were never officially suing Lil' Wayne and Young Money and Cash Money, it was just we were at a producer conference and we were giving advice to young producers and I'ma say it again. Sometimes, you gotta just jump out into the water without a life vest and just go and do what you gotta do to survive. And that's what we did, we had the opportunity to be on an album like Carter 3, we'll arrange it later on, we gonna get it fixed. We handle all the paper work, that's not the case like we didn't handle our business, it's just the checks haven't been cut. Not just for Play-N-Skillz, but d*mn near every producer on that album has not been paid, you know what I'm saying? It's just a bunch of sample bullsh*t and everything else that's going on, so shout-out to Wayne, Young Money, Cash Money, it's all good daddy, let's do another one."

Play-N-Skillz originally broke the news about their lack of compensation during an interview with Allhiphop earlier this year.

"We haven't gotten any compensation," Skillz said. "We really didn't want to speak on anything like that, just because of our relationship with T-Pain and Wayne. We're more thankful for the opportunity to be on Tha Carter III, but business is business at the end of the day."

Play-N-Skillz are perhaps best recognized for their work on Chamillionaire's Ridin' and the above mentioned track in question, Lil' Wayne's Got Money.
