LIL WAYNE SUES OVER SAMPLING DISPUTE

The Associated Press reports Lil Wayne has filed a lawsuit against Rebel Rock Productions Inc. over of one of his songs, “I Feel Like Dying.” Weezy was recently sued for allegedly sampling another artist’s work without permission, but it looks like Rebel Rock Productions Inc. — who has not responded to the claim — was responsible for clearing any necessary licensing agreements for the rapper.   Even though “I Feel Like Dying” was not included on Wayne’s Tha Carter III, the rapper performed the cut in concert and released it as a free download on the internet. Folk singer Karma-Ann Swanepoel is the original composer for the sampled track which is titled “Once”.   We’ll keep you posted with further details.
