Lil Wayne vs. Quincy Jones III

You Can't Use My Music

In Film About Me

EXCLUSIVE

0906_lil_wayne_articleLil Wayne claims Quincy Jones' son "dontgetit" when he used the song without permission -- and ironically Q used the song in a movie about Lil Wayne.

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," "Pussy Monster," "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 music 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.

If someone shot and killed that thug ***** it wouldn't even be worth a comment here on TMZ. Maybe a good laugh, but certainly not a whole comment.

This is just awful. Just to think about how ALL of these rappers say the same thing basically, about how hard life was for them.....then to steal and harm other people to stay afloat is wrong. I f you are "balling" and have ALL this money then you should not have a problem paying producers or anyone else. Smh.

Another thing I find interesting browsing through comments is. These rappers and singers have been stealing and not caring about the well being of the producers they are stealing from so THEY are able to stay afloat. Then carry the attitude oh well "be happy we did it free" it's NOT free though....
