The $10 million lawsuit between Mac Miller and producer Lord Finesse, over the 2010 mixtape song "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza," has been settled out of court, reports HipHopDX.

According to documents, obtained by HHDX, both sides agreed to a settlement back in early December. However, the outcome and details remain confidential.

Finesse filed a lawsuit against Miller last summer, citing copyright infringement over the young rapper's use of his 1995 single, "Hip 2 Da Game," for his 2010 mixtape cut, "Kool Aid & Frozen Pizza." The producer legend claims Miller publicly performed and distributed the song without his consent and was suing for $10 million in damages, although Mac's camp denied that it was sold for profit.

Whether or not he received close to that number is unknown.

In a statement to Complex.com, Miller said: "I'm actually legally not allowed to say anything about what happened. Other than that it's been resolved and we didn't go to [trial]."

    one of the first rules in hiphop is to pay your dues ...if you can't do that, then you don't need to be leaning on someone else's skill or product in your performances.
