Rapper Lil’ Wayne has been hit with a $15,000,000 lawsuit over the hit single “BedRock.”

Done Deal Enterprises, based in Waynesboro, Georgia, filed a lawsuit against Lil Wayne, Young Money Records, and Cash Money Records, in the United States District Court, Southern district of New York, over the song.

The lawsuit, which was filed on August 1st, claims that the rapper stole their copyrighted tune “BedRock,” and incorporated it into the track of the same name, that was eventually featured on the compilation album We Are Young Money.

We Are Young Money peaked at #1 on the Billboard Rap charts upon its release in December of 2009.

The Young Money version of the tune featured guest appearances by Drake, Nicki Minaj, Lloyd, Tyga, Gudda Gudda, Jae Millz and was originally produced by Kane Beatz.

According to the lawsuit, the single has moved an estimated 3,000,000 copies, while the album has been certified Gold (500,000 sold) by the RIAA.

The rapper and his counsel have been directed to appear in court on October 12th, 2011.

Lil Wayne’s I Am Not A Human Being will now be a full-length album as opposed to an EP like it was originally scheduled. Several of the tracks that were slated to be featured on Tha Carter IV will now be featured on the project, which is scheduled to be released on his birthday, September 27.

“I know once he got out [of jail] those songs would be so old to him,” said his manager, Cortez Bryant to SPIN magazine.

As for Tha Carter IV, it will no longer be released on the same day as Weezy’s release from prison in November as previously planned. The New Orleans MC, has been writing down lyrics, a first for him “since 2002 or 2003,” and soon after leaving Rikers he will start working on that LP.

“He’s going to probably start from scratch,” said Bryant. “I know how he records — he’s in the studio every single day. That’s his life.”

I Am Not A Human Being will feature collaborations with his Young Money label mates such as Nicki Minaj, Drake, Jay Sean, Tyga, Lil Twist and Jae Millz. The unfinished video for the title track leaked onto the internet a few days ago showcasing some of Weezy’s tattoos that apparently glow in the dark.

“It was his concept to shoot the black light, because that way the tats that he has, they glow in the dark,” said the video’s director David Rousseau to MTV News. “He came up with that idea. So really, the rest of the video was a springboard on that.”

Jae Millz Arrested…Again

Posted: Wednesday – May 19, 2010

“This woman really just called the cops on me… But u in MY house.”

What happened to the good old days when a rapper was making headlines for their actual music and less about their exploits outside of the booth?

Since Jae Millz returned back into relevancy, the Young Money member has used 2009 and 2010 to showcase his hate towards certain unnamed XXL Freshman and run ins with the law.

The latest involved Millz being arrested on Tuesday as a result of an incident in his home in New York.

According to sources, the problem was a domestic dispute, but have Millz tell it, the problem was dealing with “illegal substances”,

“Its real weird how I got arrested 4 havin an illegal substance, but 80% of da holdin cell was in there cuz of chicks,” Jae Millz tweeted.

So, it makes things better that Millz is still getting arrested for drug charges? When does a person come to realize that getting caught for such charges is a bit juvenile?

With a new mixtape on the way, He Still Nasty, the rapper is expected to start shooting the visual for the first single on the upcoming tape, which will be dropping May 26.
