Lil Wayne Sues Quincy Jones III For Using His Songs In "The Carter" Documentary

Lil Wayne files suit against Quincy Jones III, claiming he did not approve the use of his songs in a documentary.

Lil Wayne has filed suit against Quincy Jones III for violating copyright by using his music in the 2009 documentary The Carter.

According to TMZ, Quincy used the songs "Lollipop," "Let the Beat Build," "A Mill and "Dontgetit" from Weezy's platinum album Tha Carter III without permission. He claims that Jones and QD3 producers didn't bother to ask for approval in using the tracks.

Wayne initially was on board with the documentary, allowing the cameras to follow him around. But he then sued over the film for its "scandalous portrayal" of him and was later countersued.

The Young Money captain is suing for unspecified damages and an order prohibiting producers from using his music.

    "PRESSING CHARGES ON A NIGGA??? SUING A NIGGA??? Seriously?!?! Man, I just keep losing respect for Lil Wayne and his family." Shut the fuck up, faggot. Suing is what grown people do, or did you expect Lil Wayne to act like a niggger and go shoot Quincy III?!?! You gotta learn how to be a normal person, fool

    Fucking idiot kid is doing whatever he can to get that documentary off the market cause it shows him fucked on syrup most of the time, saying he was basically molested by a woman as a kid, an interview with his daughter saying she wishes he was around more, and being a dick in interviews.

    PRESSING CHARGES ON A NIGGA??? SUING A NIGGA??? Seriously?!?! Man, I just keep losing respect for Lil Wayne and his family.

  • YEBO

    YES, THEY WERE SUPPOSED TO PLAY LIL BOOSIE SONGS IN THAT DOCUMENTARY. BUT SERIOUSLY. I STILL DON'T KNOW WHY WAYNE SUED HIM. IT'S COMPLETELY STUPID, UNLOGICAL AND WEEZY IS ONE OF THE MOST INTELIGENT RAPPERS OUT THERE, SO IT JUST DOESN'T FIT WITH HIS PERSONA. LIL WAYNE IS INFLUENTAL LEGEND, RAPPER, SINGER, HE RECORDED THE BEST ROCK ALBUM EVER, WEEZY IS GREAT FASHION DESIGNER AND ROLE MODEL IN FASHION BECAUSE OF THE WAY HOW HE GETS DRESSED, HE IS A BUSINESSMAN, AND THE NEW TONY HAWK AS WELL. PLEASE RELLY TELL HIM TO GO, VISIT BROADWAY AND GET A ROLE OF JEAN VALJEAN, HE WILL CHANGE THE MUSICAL GAME UP LIKE HE DID WITH THE HIP HOP.

      Lil Wayne a legend and infuental? LMAO! nice trolling..

    • Yesmam

      Yeah an intelligent man who raps about lollipops... The best kind of intelligence.

    • phcks

      Thing is, Wayne never wanted them to release that documentary in the first place, but they still did. After several tries to block the release, he lost the courtcase. I guess now he just wants to sue them because he didn't know he could do that before. He's basically making them pay for releasing it

    On some real shit, Ja Rule should sue some nigga too

  • Deborah

    Ridiculous. I'm surprised Lil Wayne even knows what a lawsuit is, let alone the descendant of a legend such as Quincy Jones III. I hope he loses. And its he time he and his tuneless, lyrically retarded music went home. For good.

    L'il wanye single handidly keepin hip hop relevant. Weezy ya favourite rappers saviour.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Lil Wayne is hip hop's savior. Tha Carter III saved hip hop after bitch nigga Nas tried to kill it. Weezy is the GOD MC, guitar hero, poet, innovator, taste maker, game changer, pro skater, father, King of Hip Hop, real blood nigga. swag

    • Who U

      NAS DIDNT KILL HIP HOP, YOU DID BITCH

      it seems that Deborah has no clue to who is trolling.

      Is it physically impossible for you to write a comment in standard English? And what's with the swag at the end of the sentence. What the hell does that mean? Nas is widely regarded to be one of tghe greatest MC's of all time. Your pretender Lil Wayne can NEVER top Illmatic with his Carter bullshit. Hip hop IS dead largely because of the inexplicable rise of Lil Wayne.

  • So Icy Boi!

    Lil Wayne is a legend, and bitch niggas wannabe like him and copy his songs. Jay-Z, Qunincy Jones III, Kanye West tryna copy a legend. but it wont work bitches. Lil Wayne is original. he is the God MC, King of Hip Hop. swag

    • Deborah

      Lil Wayne the God of hiph op? You have just dick-rode the Hall of Legends- the last 30 years of REAL lyricism! Heard of Nas? Rakim? Eminem? Ice Cube? Ghostface? THOSE are the legends and innovators. Take a poll of the GOATS based on the opinion of these rappers, and Wayne's name wil not be anywhere near the top. And don't bother writing swag at the end of the sentence. You haven't got any.

  • NY

    Is it possible to even sue over a song when you stole it yourself, Lollipop was a beat that Cash Money said it was going to pay the producer but he never got his cut until he sued Wayne. Just a hypocritical bitch who realizes his fame is behind him and that he will go down as one of the worst rappers of all time.

    "Besides you have to be an idiot to authorize a documentary of yorself and not expect your music to be in it" That music is Wayne's bread and butter, so of course he should sue. I agree that Wayne should have been a little more aware of what was going on. All he had to ask Quincy was what music was he thinking of using, and either ok it, or not. Regardless, it's still business.

    yall talkin about wayne not payin producers but its not waynes responsiblity to make sure the producers are paid. Its the people that are over wayne ie Birdman. Wayne gets his money after the boss gets their money. Thats how 90% of EVERY BUSINESS IN THE WORLD WORKS.

  • Jew Money

    when this nigga pays the producers for creating the tracks he can have a voice about what people do with his music.

      Skateboarding is not for white people only. Take your race division and go home. Wayne- for all the idiot that he is- has the right to do as he wishes. He doesn't need to comform to pathetic racial stereotypes.

    Wow, why can't he just be thankful someone found him important enough to make a documentary about him? Besides you have to be an idiot to authorize a documentary of yorself and not expect your music to be in it if music is your claim to fame. Get this clown out of here, along with Chief Keef, Wacka Flacka, Gucci Mane, 2Chainz, and all these other idiots making a mockery of rap.

  • jayvon28

    two forms of irony in this lawsuit.. 1.) the fact he is suing Quincy for using music he not only didn't pay the producers for but was sued by said producers for unpaid royalties 2.) how can you sue someone for using "your music" in a documentary of "yourself" that you initially agreed to do and supplied footage of "yourself" on tour.....

  • Anonymous

    wayne is consistently sinking to lower and lower levels. he signs shitty artists to his label tha are only good at making radio songs. they sell, but that dont mean its a good song. also he won't pay his producers. I mean the mother fucker is worth a shit ton so he can afford it for sure so its just weak of him to give two shits about how much the beats costs ( the same beats which often make his songs even better and sell more). D4 was garbage in comparison to his standards for music and now this. Its just straight up low

    how can he file a law suit when he didnt pay for the beats ahah

    it's a shame that the son of quincy jones only gets jobs because of his father. he got a chance to produce some wack beats for 2 pac only because pac was having sex with his sister.

    Pissing match with lawyers. Sounds thugged out.

  • Industry Advocate

    Hold On....THIS CAT is suing someone for a documentary he did and didn't like the truth that came out, then sued again for music he said he never got permission to use?? YET...he won't pay anyone right, on time or sometimes AT ALL??? God don't like ugly and Wayne downfall starts.....NOW! Watch and see, there's no humility to this cat at all anymore. I've heard and read way too many stories on how he's a bullish asshole in business and personally. Ask Dame Dash, Chris Brown, Irv Gotti and 50 Cent how that affects your fanbase perception in the long run! Crazy Ironic!!!

    • milehighkid303

      I agree pretty much whole-heartedly bruh, EXCEPT Dam, and 50. Far as Dam, he got HOSED by Jay man, and as for 50...lol I could go for hours. Billions worldwide and in the US would disagree with ya there. Your comment was good tho fam! ONE.
