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.

Careful Lil Wayne.. Old man Quincy has ties to Steve Wynn. I am sure Wynn owes him one for that testimony. So watch what you say about Jr.....

Wayne is the biggest piece of **** in the world. A movie is made about him, for god knows what reason, and he has a problem with them using his "music"? Jeez, this guy made a movie about you, you dumb piece of crap. You should be honored. The least you can do is let him use your music in it.

I think its time for somebody to take him out. Not a single eye will water, not a single tear will be born.
