Lil Wayne - Lil Wayne Hit With $15 Million Lawsuit Over Bedrock

Rapper Lil Wayne has been slapped with yet another lawsuit - he is facing a $15 million (£9.3 million) legal battle over allegations he stole hit track Bedrock.
The rapper teamed up with his Young Money Entertainment artists including Drake, Nicki Minaj and Lloyd for the track, which topped the Billboard Rap Charts and reached number two in the Hot 100.
The song also featured on the compilation album We Are Young Money, which shot to the top of the rap albums countdown.
Now bosses at Done Deal Enterprises are taking legal action over the song, accusing Lil Wayne, Young Money Records and Cash Money Records of stealing parts of Bedrock, which they claim to have copyrighted.
Done Deal Enterprises chiefs are seeking a $15 million payout and Lil Wayne has been ordered to appear in court on 12 October (11) to face the claims.
The latest lawsuit is not Lil Wayne's only legal woe - he is also facing allegations of unpaid royalties stemming from a 2008 collaboration with T-Pain from production duo Play-N-Skillz, while producer David Kirkwood has sued the star for alleged outstanding payments and royalties from his hit album Tha Carter Iii. He also faces claims he used a sample without permission in his 2006 collaboration with Bryan 'Birdman' Williams, Army Gunz.
