After unsuccessfully blocking the movie from release, now Lil Wayne is suing the producers of "The Carter" for using his music in the film without his permission.
Lil Wayne has filed a lawsuit against Quincy Jones III, who was a producer behind the documentaryÂ about the YMCMB rapper, calledÂ The Carter.
Weezy F Baby is suing QuincyÂ for using his songs in the film, without his permission. The film makes use of a bunch of Wayne's hits, like "Lollipop,"Â "Stuntin' Like My Daddy," "Pussy Monster," "Let the Beat Build," "La La," "Mr. Carter," "A Milli," and "Dontgetit." AllÂ the songs (*aside from "Stuntin' Like My Daddy")Â appeared on Lil Wayne's Tha Carter III album.Â
Although he originally agreed to appear in the film, and allowed cameras to follow him around, when all was said and doneÂ he tried to block the movie from coming out,Â because he disliked the way he was portrayed. The case was thrown out by the judge, and the movie was released in November of 2009.
As TMZ reports,Â Weezy claims Quincy never asked to use his music, and he is suing him forÂ for unspecified damages and asking for anÂ order prohibiting the producers from using his music.
