Quincy Jones III has run into backlash from Lil Wayne over the use of the rapper’s songs in ‘The Carter’ documentary. This isn’t the first time that Wayne has taken the documentary maker to court after he backed out of the project and claimed that the ‘The Carter’ was a “scandalous portrayal” of him.
Although Wayne simply may not like what Jones’ documentary has to say about him, his new attempt to go after the filmmaker focuses on the use of his music in the flick, all of which he says was added to the soundtrack without his permission, according to TMZ.
The tunes all come from Wayne’s ‘Tha Carter III’ and the lawsuit mentions half the album’s tracklist including the record’s first two singles, ‘Lollipop’ and ‘A Milli,’ as well as ‘Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,’ ‘Pussy Monster,’ ‘Let the Beat Build,’ ‘La La,’ ‘Mr. Carter,’ and ‘Dontgetit.’
Wayne initially allowed Jones to follow him with a camera, but after the documentary hit Sundance in 2009, the rapper promptly pulled his support and tried to block the film’s distribution through legal action. A judge ruled against the YMCMB general and dismissed Weezy’s argument that he should have authority over the final cut.
