Lil Wayne Sues QDIII Over Tha Carter Documentary

Lil Wayne is suing Quincy Jones III, better known as QDIII. As TMZ reported earlier today (September 7), the rapper is claiming that he never gave the filmmaker permission to use his music in a 2009 documentary titled Tha Carter. The film, which focused around Wayne, used several songs such as “Lollipop,” “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” “Pussy Monster,” “Let the Beat Build,” “La La,” “Mr. Carter,” “A Milli,” and “Dontgetit.”

Weezy initially cooperated with the filming of the documentary but, soon after changed his mind and claimed that it was a “scandalous portrayal” of him.

As of press time, Wayne is said to be asking an unspecified amount for damages as well as an order to prohibit producers from using his music.
