XXcLusive: David Banner Denies Suing QD3
News recently hit the ’Net that David Banner filed a lawsuit against Quincy Jones III’s company, QD3 Entertainment, and Virgil Films for using some of his songs in the Lil Wayne documentary The Carter. XXLMag.com spoke to the Mississippi rep about the suit and he said the reports are completely false.
According to Banner, he has no ill will towards Jones. “Me and Quincy talked three days ago,” he revealed. “Quincy’s my homie, Wayne is my homie, whatever’s going on between them, I don’t know what that is, but they are both very close friends of mine. And that [lawsuit] is not true, at all.
In fact, Banner went on to express there are no ill feelings towards Cash Money either. Many producers have complained about not getting paid by the Williams brothers for their work on Weezy’s multi-platinum Tha Carter 3 album, but Banner says he’s been compensated for “La La,” the track he produced for the disc. “Everything between me and Cash Money has been beautiful,” he said. “I haven’t had any problems. Baby and Slim have been good to me. Wayne has been good to me.”
When asked why he thinks things haven’t been that easy with Play-N-Skillz or Jim Jonsin, he responded, “ I don’t know and that’s none of my business at all.” —Jesse Gissen
