The mixtape circuit’s reigning king, DJ Drama, has been cleared of all charges filed by Lil Wayne and company over profits from mixtapes. A federal judge declared that Cash Money Records didn’t establish a “valid legal claim” in the copyright infringement lawsuit.
Since the case first hit the news last year, Drama has maintained that he didn’t have a beef with Weezy and this was a label dispute. He stated,
“The accusations against me are misplaced. This is not a case of Lil Wayne vs. DJ Drama. Me and Wayne are good. I am confident that this matter will be resolved quickly without harming the relationships between myself, Wayne and Cash Money Records.”
Quiet as kept, Drama had a major hand in Weezy’s current reign of Hip-Hop as the charge was ignited with several highly successful Dedication mixtapes on Drama’s “Gangsta Grillz” series.
