Lawyers for rap star Lil' Wayne have requested additional time to review documents in a copyright infringement lawsuit filed against him last May.

According to the Associated Press, a federal lawsuit claimed Weezy did not have the right to sample Karma Ann Swanepoel's song "Once" for his song "I Feel Like Dying."

Attorneys asked a New Orleans judge today (December 16) for an extension until Friday (December 19) before they are required to turn over all documents to plaintiff Urband & Lazar Publishing.

The suit reportedly states Cash Money Records originally attempted to negotiate a license to use the Swanepoel record but were unsuccessful. Over a million people were able to download "I Feel Like Dying" sampled track.
