We’ve all seen the documentary about Lil Wayne, The Carter, produced by Quincy Jones III (son of the more famous Quincy Jones II) because it’s available, free, on the internet. Even Weezy has seen it and he thinks it’s a “scandalous portrayal.” Weezy is also upset about the music in the documentary, upset that no one asked if they could use his music, which is used in copious amounts, throughout the movie. Which is strange, because the movie, as we all know, is about Lil Wayne.
According to my sources across the internet, Lil Wayne has filed a lawsuit against QJIII claiming that he really just wanted to be asked, just for the sake of asking, if his music, including songs “Lollipop,” “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” “Pussy Monster,” “Let the Beat Build,” “La La,” “Mr. Carter,” “A Milli,” and “Dontgetit,” could be used in the movie.
The producers didn’t ask though, which really got Wayne’s goat and, because of QJIII’s impoliteness, Wayne is asking for unspecified damages and “an order prohibiting the producers from using his music.” Party foul, QJIII.
