Lil Wayne Sues Quincy Jones III over 'Tha Carter' Documentary

Lil Wayne Sues Quincy Jones III over 'Tha Carter' Documentary
Lil Wayne has been served his fair share of lawsuits over the years, but Weezy is switching things up by suing producer Quincy Jones III (aka QDIII) for allegedly misusing the rapper's music in the 2009 documentary Tha Carter.

TMZ reports that Lil Wayne had law firm Lavely & Singer file the case, which claims that the film used the tunes "Lollipop," "Stuntin' Like My Daddy," "Pussy Monster," "Let the Beat Build," "La La," "Mr. Carter," "A Milli" and "Dontgetit" without obtaining the artist's permission.

Weezy had initially cooperated with filmmakers and was followed around by a camera crew for the flick, but the hip-hop figure apparently wasn't too pleased with the results and decried the apparently "scandalous portrayal" of him.

Lil Wayne is seeking an unspecified amount in damages and is asking for an order prohibiting the producers of the documentary from using his music.
