Oh dear oh dear……
Well it seems that the online circulation of the promotional material below, featuring Lil Wayne has got folk over at Strapped towers all hot and bothered!
A representative from Strapped LLC has obviously read the online commentary slating the imagery used to promote the brand, and has resorted to sending a cease and desist order to website Highbrid Nation, ordering them to remove the ‘offending piece of material’ or face legal action.
Read cease and desist order below:
“To Whom It May Concern:
I am representing ######## and Strapped LLC. It has come to our attention that materials (the likeness of characters, video and graphics concerning Strapped Condoms and the Artist “Lil Wayne”) posted on your Website are the sole property of our client Strapped.

Hmmmmm…..I’m sorry but Andre and Jermaine’s game plan seems a little dated.
Why waste time creating the “perfect demo” when we all know that demos received by A&R’s/executives rarely get listened to and end up in the bin.In this day and age budding artists can just set up a Myspace page, upload their music and can work their product to death at very little expense, just sitting at their computers (e.g. Soulja Boy and Sean Kingston). . And the end result? . Label executives came knocking on THEIR doors! . The Internet is a beast that cannot be tamed! . I wonder if they plan on discussing the current state of the music industry, falling record sales, the digital era and why label executives (themselves included) continue to still live in a state of denial?
