Lil Wayne Settles With The Rolling Stones

Posted By on January 30, 2009

    Lil Wayne continues to be in Rock music, even when it's lawsuits. Weezy recently settled a lawsuit with the Rolling Stones over his "Playing With Fire" track. The Stones claimed it was "a clear derivative of the rock band’s song with the original lyrics and music altered in a recognizable way.” Weezy removed the song from "Tha Carter III" plus all digital downloads, ringtones and ringback providers prior to the settlement. Exact details of the settlement aren't known but a statement says “all parties expressed themselves satisfied with the amicable settlement.”

    Wayne was also sued over the use of Karma Ann Swanepoel's "Once" for his hit song "I Feel Like Dying." With over a million people downloading the song, the lawsuit is currently pending.

    In related news, Lil Wayne will drop his first Rock album "Rebirth" on April 7th. The first single from the album "Prom Queen" [listen here] is now available. Two additional songs that are rumored to be from the album have recently leaked including Lil Wayne ft. Kevin Rudolf – "Hot Revolver" [listen here] and Lil Wayne ft.
