Lil Wayne is being sued by his own lawyers who claim the rapper did to them what Birdman did to him ... screw him out of a fortune.
Pretty ironic if true ... Wayne hired a law firm to fight Cash Money and Birdman over millions in unpaid fees. The hired guns say they sent bills to Wayne for nearly a year, but got blown off.
All told, the lawyers say Wayne owes them $375k.
Shakespeare may have wanted to kill the lawyers, but never said they shouldn't get paid.
