Lil Wayne Sued For Allegedly Stealing "How To Love" Beat

Weezy's legal troubles continue to stack up, as another emcee accuses him of jacking a beat.

Lil Wayne's smash hit "How to Love" may land him in hot water, as the beat was allegedly stolen.

According to TMZ, rapper Rich Rick filed a lawsuit earlier this week in Los Angeles County Superior Court claiming that he purchased several master recordings between 2006 and 2008, among them the beat to "How to Love," from producers Drummer Boyz.

Rick claims that Drummer Boyz pitched the same beat to Wayne in November 2010, which Wayne acquired in exchange for a 35% royalty agreement.

Rick is suing Wayne, Drummer Boyz, and others for breach of contract, fraud, and other claims.

The claim finds itself at the bottom of a laundry list of lawsuits aimed at Lil Wayne. Among them are numerous producers, including Jim Jonsin, Bangladesh, and Deezle, all of whom have claimed Wayne didn't pay them for their beats.

  • jr88

    this isnt little waynes fault. its his dumbass for passing it along....i would of thought a justin beiber producer produced that shit and drake obviously wrote that track for him.. too many people are involved in lil waynes music from writers to like 10 producers on one track. someone is bound to get sued...the carter 4 drops in like 1 more anyone excited? it seems like ever since recovery and watch the throne dropped no one is excited for these bullshit albums anymore..they raised the bar

  • Blaze

    You Guys Just Listen To Music and Are Ignorant to what a full process of being a Artist is... rich Rick is an artist (unknown artist) he is not the producer!!! He Bought a group of beats From the production team Drummer Boys.. According to this they sold him a beat that according to Rich Rick is the same beat for the song how to love.... Lil Wayne Talked about the producer detail producing the song 'How to Love' and Detail has spoken about it too... This Whack Nigga Trying to sue Drummer Boys For supposedly selling that same beat to Wayne.. And trying to sue Wayne for using the beat..!!! In Other WOrds Wayne Didn't do anything wrong and He SHOULD BE THE ONE SUING DRUMMER BOYS / detail / and counter suing THIS FAGGOT ASS NIGGA RICK


      This unheard of rapper Rich Rick obviously isn't too damn rich if he's trying to sue Wayne as well as big name beat makers....Lame ass nigga pockets empty so that's why he coming for Wayne & them other boys it's all bout money

    • NOPE

      DUMB ASS he bought the beat from the drummer boys then a while after that Lil Wayne used it SO did he steal it YES look around how many times has been accused this more than any other rapper just cause the producer sold him beat or idea doesn't mean hes not aware of where it came from or the rights of the recordings

    • Tony Viera

      thats what i hate about music. just cause someone is unknown you groupies think it means they deserve nothing. stealing from an unknown is still stealing. who cares if you dont know him. if it was you and someone ripped you off on your come up how would you feel if people ignored you just because you're not famous? asshole
