Lil Wayne Sued for $15 Million Over Alleged Song Theft
Lil Wayne is being hit with yet another lawsuit.
This time, according to allhiphop.com, Weezy F. Baby is being sued for $15 Million over allegations that he stole the hit track “Bedrock,” featuring Drake, Nicki Minaj, Tyga and other members of his Young Money family. Done Deal Enterprises are taking legal action over the song, accusing Wayne, Young Money Records and Cash Money of stealing parts of “Bedrock,” which they claim to have copyrighted.
The track, which appears on the Young Money compilation album We Are Young Money and topped the Billboard Rap charts and reached No. 2 on the Hot 100, isn’t the only song for which Lil Wayne is being sued these days. He is also facing allegations of unpaid royalties from Tha Carter III producers, Jim Jonsin, Deezle and Play-N-Skillz, and others.
