Lil Wayne Accused of Ganking “How to Love” Beat
Redundantly named rapper Rich Rick claims Lil Wayne ripped off his property, the beat behind Weezy’s moving, tender single “How to Love.”
Now he’s out for some legal payback.
Rick filed a lawsuit earlier this week claiming he purchased several master recordings between 2006 and 2009 – including the beat now appearing on LW’s “How to Love” – from a group of rap producers called Drummer Boyz.

Rick claims that the Boyz went on to pitch the beat to Lil Wayne in 2010, and that Weezy acquired it in exchange for a cut of the royalties.
The song’s a hit and Rick’s suing both Weezy and the Drummer Boyz, plus others involved, for everything from breach of contract to fraud.
Weezy has also been accused of stealing “Bedrock.”
