Lil Wayne Has to Pay QDIII $2 Million

Monday, November 5th, 2012

Damn, Wayne tried to come in for 700% and it backfired on him. Not only did he lose the lawsuit he filed against the filmmaker, he lost the countersuit QDIII filed against him. Maybe he should’ve took that deposition a little more seriously.

Lil Wayne just lost his case against Quincy Jones III over the documentary about the rapper, and even worse for him, he lost the countersuit QIII filed against him.

The jury ordered Lil Wayne to pay Quincy $2,195,000. Quincy’s countersuit alleged Lil Wayne wrongfully jock blocked the release of the film, screwing up its profit potential.

Video: QD3 Talks “Lil Wayne: The Carter” Doc, ‘Fly On The Wall’ Approach

Friday, November 13th, 2009

“Typically, when we do documentaries, we sort of have a general understanding of what story we want to cover, and we’ll go get interviews to cover the gaps in the story. And we’ll do a lot of historical background and summarizing and stuff like that,” Jones told MTV News. “With Wayne, he was like, ‘I don’t want to do anything that’s really missionary. I want to give this a whole, new, fresh approach, so I don’t necessarily want to do a formal sit-down interview.’ And, I think, long-term, that worked out better for us, because sometimes when people do sit-town interviews and it’s like a formal interview, you have a chance to do knee-jerk responses, and a lot of the questions will be similar to what other people have asked him. In this case, we were like a fly on the wall in his life for, like, seven months before he dropped [Tha Carter III] and about two or three months after.”

“That’s a real special time in his career and life [when we filmed him]. He’ll never get that window back. That’s, like, the best time. We caught him leading up to Tha Carter III and then right after, when he went platinum. We were on the bus with him when he got the message. It was cool, because I think this is probably by far the most intimate film we’ve ever done, because he gave us so much access.”

Lil Wayne: The Carter DVD in stores November 17th.
