Did Lil Wayne Steal The ‘How To Love’ Beat?

Posted By on August 21, 2011

     It looks like Lil Wayne is being sued, again…according to celebrity gossip website TMZ. According to the report, a rapper named 'Rick Rick' filed a lawsuit this past week in L.A. Country Superior Court that claims he owns the beat that Lil Wayne used for his "How To Love" track (which is set to be on his new "Carter IV" album). Check out more details of the lawsuit, and listen to "How To Love," all below!

Rapper Rich Rick (right) filed the lawsuit earlier this week in L.A. County Superior Court, claiming he purchased several master recordings between 2006 and 2009 — including the beat that now appears on "How to Love" — from a group of rap producers called Drummer Boyz.

Rick claims the Drummer Boyz double-crossed him in November 2010 —  pitching the SAME beat to Lil Wayne … and Weezy acquired it in exchange for a 35% royalty agreement, eventually using the beat on "How to Love."

Rick's suing Weezy, the Drummer Boyz, and others for everything from breach of contract to fraud — demanding everything DB are entitled to under their agreement with Wayne … plus 10% interest. (TMZ)
