According to TMZ, Lil Wayne just lost his lawsuit against Quincy Jones III over “The Carter Documentary”, as well as the countersuit Quincy filed against him.
Weezy filed a lawsuit against Quincy Jones III earlier this year claiming that he never gave him permission to use music off his Tha Carter III album for the documentary that Quincy put out called “The Carter“. Quincy also filed a countersuit against Wayne saying that he screwed up the potential profit of the documentary by withdrawing his support for it.
Due to suffering from two seizures, Tunechi did not make an appearance in court for his trial on the day he was supposed to. This then meant Tune‘s lawyer had to show the jury Wayne‘s deposition videotape with Quincy‘s lawyer, Pete Ross, and you all know how serious he took that!
The jury called Lil Wayne‘s behavior in the deposition tape “unreasonable” and “irresponsible”, and also ordered him to pay Quincy $2,195,000. Damn!
If you didn’t know, Lil Wayne filed a lawsuit against Quincy Jones III recently claiming that he never gave him permission to use his music off Tha Carter III in the DVD Quincy put out called “The Carter Documentary“. In the videotaped deposition above, you can watch Quincy Jones III‘s lawyer, Pete Ross, ask Wayne some questions, but he does not seem to give a single fuck.
Weezy pulls his TRUKFIT hoodie up and gives hilarious, as well as awkward answers to the lawyer in front of the judge, such as he doesn’t recall going to Rikers Island in 2010. We all shouldn’t laugh, because it’s a serious matter, but you can’t help it when you watch how Tune replies to Quincy‘s lawyer.
At the end of the video, Tunechi even tells Pete Ross that the judge can’t save him in the “real world”. Let’s hope Marley G don’t see this!
It just keeps getting worse for Lil Wayne 🙁 A man who did the skits on Birdman‘s and Weezy‘s “Like Father, Like Son” collaboration album has file a copyright infringement lawsuit against Baby and Weezy saying he was never paid and they used the tracks without his permission. Check out what Hollywood Reporter are saying below:
A Florida man wants rappers Lil Wayne and Birdman to show him respect — for using his voice on a song with that title.
Thomas Marasciullo filed a copyright infringement lawsuit Friday in a Manhattan federal court against the rappers, their record label and various music distribution outlets.
The lawsuit says Cash Money Records had him record some “Italian-styled” repartee in 2006. The suit says his work was used without pay or permission on “Respect” and other tracks from the rappers’ joint 2006 album “Like Father, Like Son” and Birdman‘s 2007 album “5 Star Stunna“.
A lawyer and representatives for the label didn’t immediately return messages.
The lawsuit seeks unspecified damages for Marasciullo, who lives in Florida’s Hernando County.
