Update: Lil Wayne Doc On The Way, Judge Rejects Rapper’s Request To Block Release

Looks like QDIII’s Lil Wayne documentary The Carter will be coming to DVD after all. A judge denied the Grammy-award winning artist’s request yesterday (April 21) to stop the film’s release, according to Variety.

As previously reported Weezy sued QDIII, the producer’s company QDIII Entertainment and their affiliate Digeratti Holdings, LLC last month claiming he was never given approval over the final cut before its premiere as promised, and that the movie portrays him in a negative light.

Los Angeles Superior Court Judge Michael S. Mink voted in the producer’s favor, rejecting Wayne’s request for a preliminary injunction. Now QD, the son of legendary musician Quincy Jones and producer behind the Beef DVD series, is free to shop around for a distribution deal for the flick.

“We’re very pleased with the court’s decision,” he told Variety. “We made a great film, which was incredibly well received at Sundance, and showcases Lil Wayne’s extraordinary talent.” – Elan Mancini

      ***Breaking News-Lil Wayne sues himself***

      Not to discredit his artistic expression, but I’ve been listening to dude for years. If anyone is to blame for his negative portrayal, it’s damn sure not the guy who grabs a camera & follows him around recording his life.

      That’s a cop out, like when Xzibit blamed his Puff Daddy/Superhead gay club story on a “media spin”.

      Something tells me that QDIII didn’t stalk this cat, hiding in dirty clothes hampers & closets getting footage without his knowledge.

      Man up, Wayne. This is worse than the time you told the world that you don’t read books & shit.

          @ m1671,

          Yeah, smh @ cats living the surreal life of fame & fortune.

          Now I’m hella curious. I’m going to buy that shit as soon as it hits the shelves.

          What more damage could possibly be done?

          Oh shit, I just realized, Wayne stays taking people to court. That’s kind of suspect…..

    G-Unot Killa I would believe that story if you said you rolled with Kobe Bryants wife not Kobe. Vanessa is the real G in that family. Kobe shoots 100 extra shots after practice just so he doesnt have to go straight home and get smacked around.

    Lil Wayne needs to stop suing people or his gangsta raps will start to be questioned.

    Another sensitive thug that needs a hug.
    Maybe he should hook up with ganstalicious for that homies ova hoes remix for season three of the boondocks.

    Lil Wayne has been on camera high, drunk, talking about getting high and getting drunk, hell he’s been on camera making out with his mentor. What the hell could be on this DVD that Wayne is ashamed of?
