Nick Cannon's MTV Cory Gunz Documentary Series Cease & Desisted

There's more than one "Son of a Gun," and the courts may have to decide who's the first.

Last week, it was reported that MTV has finalized plans to air a multi-part April documentary series on Young Money Records' Cory Gunz. The series, called Son of a Gun, would follow the Bronx, New York emcee, son of 1990s rapper Peter Gunz, through recent years to his celebrated work with Lil Wayne. Nick Cannon had developed the series, and was named executive producer. reports that Johnny Fratto, son to mafia boss Louis Fratto, has served MTV and Nick Cannon with a cease and desist letter over the series. Fratto claims that he had a series, also called Son of a Gun in development, and that themes used in MTV's trailer, take from his own.

Fratto is perhaps best known as a returning guest on The Howard Stern radio show.

    a friend who was hit by a drunk driver and is now in a coma. Before I say anything else I do ask that you pray for her recovery. I was recently interviewed by a west coast magazine, and just had the interview published to the mag site. If I get enough FB likes my interview will go into the actual magazine. The link is I just ask that you take a look, and press like for me. I made it an honest interview so I'm sure that you will like it. Also feel free to view my youtube link @
