Lil Wayne Sues Over Use Of His Song In Lil Wayne Documentary
Lil Wayne has filed a lawsuit against Quincy Jones III, obtained by TMZ, claiming he never gave permission to use his music in the documentary about him -- "The Carter."
Among the songs used, hits like "Lollipop," "Stuntin' Like My Daddy," "Let the Beat Build," "La La," "Mr. Carter," "A Milli," and "Dontgetit." All of the songs were from Lil's multi-platinum album, "Tha Carter III."
Lil Wayne claims Quincy III and the other producers never bothered to ask if they could use his tunes.
It appears Lil Wayne cooperated with the filming of the documentary, because he allowed cameras to follow him around.
As it turns out, Lil Wayne hated the movie and sued over it, claiming it was a "scandalous portrayal" of him.
In the suit, filed by the mega-firm of Lavely & Singer, Lil Wayne asks for unspecified damages and an order prohibiting the producers from using his music. more on this story
