Lil Wayne Sued Over Rolling Stones Song
Weezys in legal trouble again- this time over one of his album tracks
Lil Wayne is being sued over allegations hes stolen parts of a song by The Rolling Stones. Abcko Music Inc alleges that Weezy, his producers and label Universal have plagiarised the Stones' song Play with Fire- which they own the rights to- on his song Playin With Fire. The lawsuit was filed in Manhattan and claims the Wayne track- from his album Tha Carter III- is clearly copied from the Stones track. The company- which is seeking unspecified damages- also says the lyric But don't play with me/ 'cause you're playing with fire," is obviously changed by the rapper to "But you can't blame me/ if I set this stage on fire." Lil Wayne was this week knocked off the US album chart number one by Nas but Tha Carter III is still likely to be one of the biggest selling LPs of 2008.
