Lil Wayne sues Quincy Jones over <em>The Carter</em> documentary

Weezy claims he never gave permission to use his music in The Carter documentary.

According to TMZ, Lil Wayne has sued the son of super producer Quincy Jones for using songs from Tha Carter III without his permission.

The claim is curious, because Lil Wayne allowed a film crew to trail him during the making and release of the album. However, Wayne says they never asked specifically about rights to the music, which includes ‘Lollipop,’ ‘Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,’ ‘Pussy Monster,’ ‘Let the Beat Build,’ ‘La La,’ ‘Mr. Carter,’ ‘A Milli,’ and ‘Dontgetit.’

Wayne believes that The Carter was a “scandalous portrayal” and is asking for unspecified damages and an order prohibiting the producers from using his music. Until then, the full documentary is still available online; watch it below.
