lilwayne(Taylor Media Services) U.S. rapper Lil Wayne (real name Dwayne Carter) is battling back against a $432,000 claim from Red City Entertainment. Via his manager Lil Wayne is denying that he was a no-show for an agreed upon concert in the Bahamas on September 27th of last year. Red City maintains that on the night of the concert, the much-tattooed, 26-year-old rapper was found unconscious in his hotel room by the police.

However, Lil Wayne’s manager Cortez Bryant says the failed appearance was the fault of the promoters because September 27th was not the original concert date. Meanwhile, Red City counters that it gave Lil Wayne a $210,000 advance for the concert and it wants that money back and more. The controversial rapper is also due in court on another case next month. He faces illegal drug and gun charges in Yuma County, Arizona as a result of a January 2008 incident.
