Lil Wayne Accused of Stealing The Rolling Stones Song

Lil Wayne Accused of Stealing The Rolling Stones Song

Another trouble arrives for the rapper after the latest news stated that he is being sued by a company for using the rock legend's song without an approval.

After being alleged of sampling a song without an approval by a rock chick Karma-Ann Swanepoel, sometime in May, now the same problem arrives for Lil Wayne. According to the latest reports this time the rapper is being accused of stealing a song from legendary rockers The Rolling Stones.

The news surfaces after a musical publishing company, Abkco Music Inc, that own the rights over the Stones' track titled "Play With Fire", filed in a lawsuit against Wayne, his artistic collaborators and his recording company. The company filed the lawsuit on Thursday, July 24 to the federal court in Manhattan, but their demand is still unspecified.

On the lawsuit, Abkco, claimed that Wayne's song "Playing With Fire", which is being included on the rapper's new LP "Tha Carter III", is a complete derivative from the Stones track. Moreover the company also stated that although the rapper's changed the song a bit but the similarity on the song's music and lyrics is still recognizable.

Abkco also said that they are very concern with Wayne's version because it also contains explicit, sexist and offensive lyrics. The company fear that it would drive people's opinion in believing that Abkco and the Stones are approving the rapper's song version. Meanwhile, until this date, both representatives from Wayne and his label are still refusing to shout out any comments regarding the lawsuit.

    Umm actually the song is a shitty rip off of the rolling stones song. Changing a few words to make the song more modern the song is 80% identical. Rolling Stones are from the 60's and still have the largest concerts with nose bleed tickets selling for 900 bucks a ticket. Ohh and they play instruments, and still play instruments. What rapper can say that?
