Weezy Sued Again, Goes Behind The Music

Posted By on March 19, 2009

    A judge ordered that Lil Wayne will have to turn over the financial records for his mult-platinum album "Tha Carter III" to Urban & Lazar Music Publishing who is suing him for unlawful usage of South African folksinger Karma-Ann Swanepoel's song "Once" for his track "I Feel Like Dying," which doesn't even appear on the album but they say he used it to promote the LP. If people can sue over a song being used to "promote" something, even when it's not used on albums or sold in anyway, the new ruling could open the door to MANY lawsuits against not only artists but TONS of DJs.

    In related news, VH1 will be profiling Lil Wayne for an upcoming episode of their "Behind The Music" series. The series, which has been off the air lately, will soon return with Lil Wayne the only rapper confirmed to be featured. With over a decade in the music industry, Weezy is coming off his biggest year with his sixth album "Tha Carter III" going 3x platinum and the rapper winning four Grammy Awards.
