Lil Wayne has been sued for an amount of $15 million for copyright infringement lawsuit yet again. Currently, Lil Wayne is accused by the Georgia-based production company Done Deal Enterprises of stealing their copyrighted song ‘BedRock’ and has incorporated it into the track of the same name.

The company has filed a legal paper in the United States District Court, Southern district of New York for $15 million in compensation. In response to the filing, the judge has ordered Lil Wayne to appear in court on 12th October.

The hip-hop single, ‘BedRock’ is featuring the likes of Drake, Nicki Minaj, Gudda Gudda, Tyga, Lloyd and Jae Millz. The song has been taken from Young Money’s compilation CD ‘We are Young Money’. It has climbed to No. 1 on Rap Songs chart and peaked to good position on Billboard Hot 200.

However, this is not the first time that Lil Wayne has been slapped with a lawsuit. Last year, on May 2012, the rap mogul has been sued by a rapper named Dirahn Gilliams for allegedly sampling his song for Grammy-winning single ‘Lollipop’ without his consent. But, the suit has just came after a month after the producer Jim Jonsin has taken legal action against Lil Wayne claiming he has yet to receive any royalty payments for his work.
