Lil Wayne
buried the hatchet with another disgruntled producer this week ... this time settling a $1.5 million dollar lawsuit over the track "Love Me or Hate Me."

The producer in question -- David Kirkwood -- sued Lil Wayne, Cash Money Records and Young Money Entertainment in 2011 ... claiming they owed him royalties on "Love me or Hate Me" from "The Carter III" album.

Lil Wayne initially fought back, asking a judge to dismiss the case. But then the rapper, along with CM and YME, decided to settle out of court with Kirkwood for an undisclosed amount.

TMZ broke the story ... Lil Wayne JUST settled another $20-million lawsuit filed by another bitter producer in April, over unpaid "Lollipop" royalties.

he will be broke soon. All rap has always been is a legal disguise for gangs and drugs and guns never about the music if you can call it that.

He can more than afford it. And that's why all these CRUMB SNATCHERS keep filing lawsuits, they want what he has but they want it without having to work for it like lil wayne has. Say what u want but like lil wayne said "Love me or hate me, it won't make me or break me" the man is talented and puts out GREAT MUSIC.
