The song in question, 'Once,' by Karma-Ann Swanepoel, was sampled by Jonsin on Wayne's mixtape track 'I Feel Like Dying.'
An attorney for the Swanepoel's publisher filed suit against Weezy last year, claiming that the New Orleans rapper did not receive permission to use the song. They also claimed that by performing 'I Feel Like Dying' live and allowing fans to download it for free on his website, Swanepoel's music was illegally used to promote Wayne's platinum-selling album, 'The Carter III.'

Weezy responded last week by filing suit against Jonsin, the Florida-based producer responsible for Wayne's mega-hit 'Lollipop' and T.I.'s 'Whatever You Like,' claiming that the producer was responsible for obtaining the licensing agreements for the usage of Swanepoel's song.
Jonsin has neither responded to the suit, nor named his legal representation in court records. The phone number listed for his company, Rebel Rock, has been disconnected.
