MTV News Finds Out What We Already Knew: How The Play-N-Skillz-Produced "Got Money" Came To Be Lil Wayne's

Dallas' own Play-N-Skillz, who now have their own Wikipedia page (um....jealous?), are in the news again thanks to Lil Wayne's "Got Money", which, you might recall, the South Irving brothers produced.

Seems Miami rapper Pitbull told MTV News that the song "Got Money" was originally his. And, in turn, the network reached out to Play-N-Skillz to get the scoop on how the record came to be Weezy's.

Only, not so much a scoop, huh? Oh well. --Pete Freedman
