Rappers Beat Lawsuit

Lil Jon & the East Side Boyz have successfully defended themselves against a copyright infringement suit brought by musician Redwin Wilchcombe over the song “The Weedman.”

The track appeared on their 2 million copy smash Kings of Crunk.

Wilchcombe claims there was never a contract giving the group permission to use the song. However, the courts decided that there was an implied contract by virtue of the fact that Wilchcombe came to the recording studio, worked out the idea with the rappers, took direction from them, and willingly delivered a finished product.
