Lil Wayne & Birdman Sued For Copyright Infringement For Songs On Like Father, Like Son

Date: October 2009

What happened? On various tracks on Like Father, Like Son and Birdman’s 5 Star Stunna, Cash Money hired a man named Thomas Marasciullo to do some voiceover work for them (Marasciullo can be heard narrating the skit “Respect”). However, Marasciullo claimed he was never asked permission or paid for his work. To make matters worse, when he started demanding payment, his son (who worked as an engineer for Cash Money) was fired.

Complex says: Well if the father wasn’t getting paid, then the son had to get fired. Cash Money is a family, and that’s mob mentality at its finest.
