Lil Wayne Got Not So Lil Problem
Rapper Lil Wayne got into trouble, and it’s quite bigger than his name.
This 25-year-old rapper is being sued by a music publishing company that owns the rights to the Rolling Stones song “Play with Fire.” According to Abkco Music Inc., the Louisiana based rapper released an alternate version of the song in another version which contained “explicit, sexist and offensive” lyrics, and the worst of it is that he’s doing it without permission.
They’re now suing for copyright infringement and seeking unspecified damages, but the company’s representative could not be reached for any further comment.
The singer whose real name Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr., is in his glorious days now, because his latest album “Tha Carter III” that was released on June 10, has become a major success.
On its first week of release, the album selling more than a million copies, beating the record of 50 Cent’s album “The Massacre” in 2005. The first single “Lollipop” became his most commercially successful song at that point, topping the Billboard Hot 100.
Hopefully this case won’t be such a big deal or affected on Wayne’s album selling. Or is it came up because of his successful album selling? somebody got envy.
Hmmm… that’s an interesting thought.
