Bridgeport Music is famous for padding pockets for illegal sampling, and they take aim on Cash Money's "Like Father, Like Son" album.
New Orleans, Louisiana rappers Lil Wayne and Birdman have been sued by Bridgeport Music on Friday. According to AllHipHop.com, the pair wrongfully sampled Funkadelic's 1971 song "You and Your Folks, Me and My Folks" on their 2006 song "Army Gunz." The song appeared on the Cash Money Records duo's collaborative album, Like Father Like Son.
It is not yet revealed how much the lawsuit is seeking. The album is certified gold by the RIAA, selling over 500,000 copies. The song was produced by veteran DJ Nasty, who does not appear named in the lawsuit.
