Diddy Looks To Find The Next Great Rock Band, Lil Wayne Sued Again, Dilated Peoples Rapper Mistaken For Graf Vandal In “The Roundup”

Diddy tried to get his Led Zeppelin on a few years ago when he roped in Jimmy Page to appear on rock track, “Come With Me.” But now Diddy is sticking to what he knows best, letting the ones with the real talent do the job. The Bad Boy mogul is set to continue his tour with MTV’s “Making the Band,” but now the hip-hop exec will be searching for a rock troop to call his very own. [Variety]

Lil’ Wayne has been sued by a folk singer named Karma Ann Swanepoel over a sample the rapper used on his underground hit, “I Feel Like Dying.” The suit, filed in a Louisiana court, claims Weezy used the song without permission and has been making money performing the song on the road. According to a report, Universal Records and Swanepoel were negotiating the use of the sample but have been unable to work out a deal. [TMZ]

Worse came to worst: A notorious Los Angeles graffiti artist was arrested recently, however, newspaper articles and media outlets mistakenly ran images of rapper Evidence of Dilated Peoples instead of the perp. [LA Times]
