Rapper Claims Lil Wayne's 'How to Love' Beat Stolen; Files Lawsuit

The legal actions against Young Money/Cash Money Records continue to pile up, as Lil Wayne is the subject of a new lawsuit.

The latest lawsuit was filed in LA County Superior Court earlier this week, by a rapper named Rich Rick.

According to Rich Rick, he originally purchased the track for “How to Love” from a production crew known as the Drummer Boyz., which obtained a copy of the lawsuit, reports that Rich Rick claims he purchased the beat from the Drumma Boyz between 2006 and 2009.

But in 2010, the lawsuit claims that the beat was resold to Lil Wayne for a 35% royalty agreement.

Lil Wayne used the track for “How to Love,” which is the third single from his upcoming album Tha Carter IV.

Rich Rick is suing Lil Wayne and the Drumma Boyz for royalties earned from the record, along with 10% interest.

Last week, Cash Money Records CEO Bryan “Birdman” Williams was the subject of a lawsuit over a botched Las Vegas show, while Lil Wayne was hit with a $15,000,000 lawsuit at the beginning of the month, over the track "BedRock."
