Lil Wayne & Birdman Sued For Uncleared Samples On “Army Gunz”
Date: June 2011
What happened? Weezy and Baby garnered a third and final lawsuit in June, this time from a track on their 2006 collaboration album, Like Father, Like Son. They were sued by Bridgeport Music for allegedly sampling Funkadelics’ “You and Your Folks, Me and My Folks” without permission.
Complex says: Like father, like son. Either Wayne and Baby don’t care about words like “copyright” or “royalties” or “law” or they’ve just involved in an endless series of misunderstandings. Our guess? The apple doesn’t fall far from the relationship that makes us totally uncomfortable.
