Lil Wayne & Birdman Hit With Copyright Suit

It just keeps getting worse for Lil Wayne :( A man who did the skits on Birdman‘s and Weezy‘s “Like Father, Like Son” collaboration album has file a copyright infringement lawsuit against Baby and Weezy saying he was never paid and they used the tracks without his permission. Check out what Hollywood Reporter are saying below:

A Florida man wants rappers Lil Wayne and Birdman to show him respect — for using his voice on a song with that title.

Thomas Marasciullo filed a copyright infringement lawsuit Friday in a Manhattan federal court against the rappers, their record label and various music distribution outlets.

The lawsuit says Cash Money Records had him record some “Italian-styled” repartee in 2006. The suit says his work was used without pay or permission on “Respect” and other tracks from the rappers’ joint 2006 album “Like Father, Like Son” and Birdman‘s 2007 album “5 Star Stunna“.

A lawyer and representatives for the label didn’t immediately return messages.

The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for Marasciullo, who lives in Florida’s Hernando County.

    whateva. this dumbass just wants some money and to get his name out there and heard.

  • Yep!

    @ Zelos- My thoughts exactly!

    @ wayne-numba-one-fan- I must say though, it wouldn’t have took me 2 seconds, let alone over 2 years for me to request my stacks either. One must question Marasciullo’s true intentions.

    I’m just going to add this to keep it real, and alot of Wayne fans aren’t going to understand this but they have to agree that it’s true. People hate on Wayne and Baby PERIOD! 90% of you think I’m one of those people, but in all honesty, I have money TOO! Not as much as Wayne OR Baby, but I’m rich TOO. Feels good to say it, but you can’t take it with you when you go, so it doesn’t matter. I never hate on a black man or person making money. EVER! I got respect for Wayne’s lyricism, that’s all… nothing more. Not his clothes, his money, his bitches, his cars…just the lyrics. Because I don’t love or worship Lil Wayne, the way most of you choose to, you think that makes me a hater. So be it. Back to what I was saying though, people DO hate on Wayne and there are going to be people out there who are glad that he’s going to jail, because they think that it’s going to make people focus on someone else for a minute and when Wayne gets out he won’t be as successful. I know that’s not true. Wayne has so much music out that it won’t even feel like he’s gone, except for any music concerts and shows for the next 8 months to a year, maybe even less. If it weren’t for his money, he wouldn’t have gotten that plea deal, but New York is strict when it comes to that. Wayne’s fans and friends all wanna say “How could you arrest someone who’s done so much and is coming to your city to perform for his fans and kids and stuff?” Lol! But nobody’s taking to the time to think about the fact that he also disrespected the City of New York by bringing that bullshit there, when he knew he didn’t have to. Example: If you were a Wayne fan and invited Wayne to your party (at home) and he came over with a whole bunch of drugs and a gun, and syrup and shit, that could get you thrown in jail, and the cops come when the party gets too wild. When they come they find all that shit he brought with him, and threaten to take the person that owns the house, what would you do. Take the rap for some rapper that you like? Lol! Wake up ya’ll. Wayne doesn’t know or love you like that…he’s just a person that raps for his own personal gain. You have to look at things from both sides of the fence. Yep!

  • ak_wayne
