Rapper Lil Wayne has been accused of stealing the beat used in his smash hit, “How to Love” from rapper, Rich Rick.  Rick claims that he had made prior arrangements with a group of rap producers, Drummer Boyz, for the purchase of the beat, but unbeknownst to him, the producers undermined him and sold the beat to Lil Wayne in exchange for $35,000 in royalities.   Rick claims that over a three year period ranging from 2006-2009, he purchased several other master recordings from the producers.

Last week, Rick filed a claim against Drummer Boyz, Lil Wayne, and others in an L.A. County Superior Court, citing a breach of contract and fraud as reasons for the suit.  Seeking vengence, Rick seeks to win the same royalities Drummer Boyz are entitled to through their deal with Lil Wayne, plus 10%.  Attempts to reach Drummer Boyz and Lil Wayne were unsuccessful.

  1. From the selection of beats you’ve chosen from previous step, you can then be creative in experimenting to make your own beats fast following a pattern. It would be a disservice to boil down the importance of these albums solely to their “conscious” element, however well intended. So it’s always important to remember
    when making hip hop beats that you be yourself and always
    remain creative.

  2. Exceptional post however I was wondering if you could write a litte more on
    this subject? I’d be very thankful if you could elaborate a little bit more. Thank you!

  3. Having too many will end up producing your beat sound chaotic and difficult to differentiate.
    With Exclusive Beats you get unlimited rights basically,
    where you can record a song to the purchased beats & sell as many times as you want without paying the producer again.
    If you need to form amazing rap or hip-hop music or simply lay down the beats behind your own
    vocals or jazz, you’ll need a beat making machine.

  4. I’m really loving the theme/design of your web site. Do you ever
    run into any browser compatibility problems?
    A couple of my blog visitors have complained about my website
    not operating correctly in Explorer but looks great in Chrome.
    Do you have any suggestions to help fix this issue?
