Lil Wayne is taking legal action for improper use of the rapper’s music. Lil Wayne has filed a lawsuit against Quincy Jones’ son for using a few of his songs in a documentary, ironically about Lil Wayne, without his permission.
The suit is being filed against Quincy Jones III for using songs like “Let the Beat Build,” “Lollipop,” “Mr. Carter” and “A Milli” in a doc called “The Carter.”
The songs were pulled from Wayne’s critically acclaimed album Tha Carter III, but Wayne says that producers never asked for permission to use the music. The documentary reportedly shows firsthand footage of Wayne, which would mean that he consented to being filmed, but sources tell TMZ that the New Orleans native disliked the final product, saying that it was a “scandalous portrayal” of his life.
The suit, filed via the Lavely & Singer law firm, targets producers for unspecified damages and aims to prevent them from using Lil Wayne’s music moving forward.
