Lil Wayne stiffed his lawyers to the tune of $ 375,239, according to a new lawsuit.

Attorney Michael Kramer, who represented Wayne in a record label battle and several other legal tiffs, sued the singer for his alleged nonpayment in Manhattan federal court Monday.

In July 2013, Weezy agreed to pay a $ 20,000 initial retainer and subsequent monthly bills, the suit says.

But Wayne — listed in the lawsuit as Dwayne Michael Carter Jr. — never paid, his lawyer charges.

The firm billed Wayne from November 2014 through October 2015.

In late September, Kramer stopped representing the “Got Money” rapper due to the debt.

Afterward, Kramer “made numerous attempts to resolve the dispute amicably,” the suit states. “These attempts were ultimately unsuccessful.”

Wayne hired the legal eagle to help him sue his record label for big bucks.

The rapper alleged that Cash Money Records failed to honor his contract and cheated him out of $ 51 million.

The suit contends the record company failed to pay him the $ 8 million for the much delayed “Tha Carter V” album.

The case is still pending.

Kramer and a rep for Cash Money did not immediately respond to requests for comment.
