Lil' Wayne gets briefcase containing $1 million in cash
The theme of Lil’ Wayne’s birthday on Tuesday night (October 7) was very much money, with the rapper receiving the ultimate birthday gift in hard cash from a record label pal.

Head of Cash Money Records, Bryan ‘Baby’ Williams aka Birdman presented Wayne with a Louis Vuitton briefcase containing $1 million at his party at Miami club Mansion, reportedly leaving Wayne speechless.

Despite the current financial crisis in America, the party was a lavish affair and included an ice-sculpture filled with $100 bills.

In July, musical publishing company Abkco Music Inc accused the rapper, his artistic collaborators and his record company -- a unit of Universal Music Group -- of copyright infringement and unfair competition.

The company alleges that Lil Wayne's 'Playing With Fire' was obviously derived from The Rolling Stones' song 'Play With Fire'.

The company also claims in the lawsuit that Lil Wayne, whose real name is Dwayne Michael Carter, uses "explicit, sexist and offensive language" that could lead the public to believe that The Rolling Stones approved of the rapper's version.
