Lil Wayne, If You ‘Play With Fire,’ You Get Burned

Lil Wayne is learning about what happens when you play with fire, or at least with classic rock tunes. The publishing company that owns the rights to the Rolling Stones’ “Play With Fire” has sued the rapper over the song “Playing With Fire,” a bonus cut on his smash album Tha Carter III album that doesn’t sample the tune, but features a pair of lines that are very similar to one from the Stones tunes, though sung in a different meter. Read more about the lawsuit here.

Do you think the Stones (or the owners of this song, anyway) are being too sensitive?
