LWP Licensing and Publishing was created in 2004 by writer Lil Weavah soon after he was contracted as a creator for a television series on Showtime. The series was canceled six months after production began. Consequently, the series' failure led to songs developed for the series appearing on unauthorized platforms such as LimeWire and online mixtape CDs.
Though the Showtime series never came to fruition, he initiated numerous business discussions with television producers and music producers during the promotional stages. Lil Weavah finalized LW-LP as a protective measure against copyright violations to exert more control over his writing. Though Lil Weavah has never officially released a music single, he has developed concepts for many artists and producers. Most notably, in 2006, he co-licensed an independent song titled My Rims, which has aired on several television shows and films.
Lil Weavah has released one music project, Underground Music (UM), and it was officially released through LW-LP. UM was initially designed as a soundtrack for a short film about independent music artists. However, Lil Weavah (LW-LP) signed several licensing deals for TV Show concepts or co-licensure ventures (i.e., My Rims) soon after production.
Lil Weavah has signed over 25 co-licensed writer agreements, primarily via composing television scene concepts or creative design for other music producers.
