50 Cent’s suing Taco Bell, and now the Rollingstones are suing Lil Wayne.
Abkco Music Inc, a musical publishing company that owns the rights to the band’s song “Play With Fire” sued the rapper in Manhattan federal court Thursday, saying he released an altered version of the song without permission. The company is suing Lil Wayne, his guest artists and his record company, a unit of Universal Music Group, of copyright infringement and unfair competition. Abkco also said that Lil Wayne’s version uses “explicit, sexist and offensive language” and could lead the public to believe the company and the Rolling Stones approved of and authorized the new version.
