Lil Wayne Sues Over “I Feel Like Dying”

Posted By on April 29, 2009

    Lil Wayne is suing the producer of his infamous song "I Feel Like Dying," after Weezy himself was sued last year for copyright infringment saying he failed to secure permission to sample folk singer Karma-Ann Swanepoel's song "Once" for the song in question. In fact, last month Lil Wayne was even forced to hand over financial records for his Grammy-winning "Tha Carter III," for the lawsuit he faces over this song. Even though the song isn't on the album, the lawyer argued that Lil Wayne promoted his album by performing the song in concert and allowing his fans to download it on his myspace page.

    Weezy's lawyer says that Rebel Rock Productions Inc., of Coconut Creek, FL, who produced "I Feel Like Dying," was responsible for getting the necessary licensing agreements, not him. To date, Rebel Rock has not replied and there is no lawyer for the company named in the suit.
