Lil Wayne Loses Documentary Lawsuit

(Billboard) A state court judge has refused a request by rapper Lil Wayne to block the release of a documentary titled "The Carter," based on his life.

The artist sued QD3 Entertainment - a company owned by producer Quincy Jones III, son of legendary musician Quincy Jones - and Digerati Holdings last month, alleging the company failed to comply a deal that would allow him to have approval of the film's final version, reports Variety.

According to allhiphop.com, the rapper took issues with scenes that displayed his drug use in the documentary, which follows him around Amsterdam. According to the lawsuit, Lil Wayne's manager reviewed "The Carter" in December and requested that the scenes be removed. But in January, when the film premiered during the Sundance Film Festival, the scenes were still in the film. - more on this story
