Hot Boys Reunion Delayed By Legal Issues + QD3 Speaks On “The Carter” Documentary


QD3 speaks on Lil Wayne‘s “The Carter” Documentary, and then answers questions from the audience in the video above. Don’t forget to pre-order your copy from TheCarterDoc.com, and it drops November 17th.

Check out some previews of the documentary here, and the official trailer here.

Also, check out this article by Quick Jams where B.G. says that with him and Lil Wayne having problems with the law, it’s unlikely a record will drop anytime soon:

If it were just about the music, the long-awaited Hot Boys reunion probably would have already happened. All four members — Lil Wayne, B.G., Juvenile and the currently incarcerated Turk — seem to be onboard. There are even some unreleased Turk vocals in the vaults. However, B.G. said that with him and Lil Wayne having problems with the law, it’s unlikely a record will drop anytime soon.

“I know I got my own personal dealings to deal with, as far as with the system and things of that nature,” said B.G., who was arrested for illegal gun possession recently in Louisiana. Meanwhile, Wayne is expected to be sentenced to a year in prison in a New York court in February.

“I know Wayne’s got to face the music with his situation with the system,” B.G. added. “But we got time. We got a whole bunch of time to put the album together. We record quick. We already got songs done. But I look at it like, if we record from now until whoever gets sentenced or however it go, we still wouldn’t be able to put the album out until [Wayne] comes home. When shorty comes home, I know he’ll wanna record a whole ‘nother album. So you might have a double Hot Boys CD. You never know. I don’t know how it will work out.”

Quincy “QD3” Jones III Recruits Lil Wayne For “Scratch” Game

Quincy QD3 Jones III Recruits Lil Wayne For Scratch Game

With the forthcoming release of Scratch: The Ultimate DJ game set to take-on competition from Jay-Z’s DJ Hero and Timbaland’s Beaterator, SOHH spoke with Quincy “QD3” Jones III about his new venture and snagging along artists like Lil Wayne and Kanye West.

According to QD3, the game will feature a variety of old-school and new records for players to kick back with.

“We’ve had complete freedom to make this game true to what people would probably want it to be,” Jones explained. “We’ve tried to represent all the different [groups] from old-school hip-hop break beats to some of the newest hits like Kanye West’s ‘Flashing Lights.’ Lil Wayne and so on and so on, Tech N9ne. I think we represented all of the different regions of hip-hop. So it’s a little something in there for everybody. Little R&B, Salt-N-Pepa, Whodini to Lil Wayne to Kanye West, it’s pretty full in that sense.”

The game will also feature tracks from various regional artists.

Music includes Gorillaz’s “Feel Good Inc,” RUN DMC’s “Peter Piper,” Nelly’s “Hot In Herre,” Deltron’s “Mastermind,” Murs’ “Looking Fly,” Kid Koala’s “Skanky Panky,” Pete Rock & C.L. Smooth’s “They Reminisce,” The Knux’s “Life in a Cage,” and more.

Reports of the new project’s creation landed online last fall.

7 Studios made a move toward being the first studio to renew the turntable-based rhythm game, announcing partnerships with DJ equipment manufacturer Numark and hip-hop producer Quincy Jones III, along with Genius Products and Genco Interactive. Dubbed, Scratch: The Ultimate DJ, the game will be played using a turntable controller, the “Scratch Deck,” designed by Numark, which promises to “allow players to re-imagine songs on the fly and add their own creativity” (no word on an MC counterpart — or b-boy, for that matter). 7 Studios joins Activision and presumably any other company with half a brain as it vies for precious mindshare of the next potential gaming phenomenon.


Lil Wayne ‘The Carter’ Documentary Coming Soon + Compares Weezy To 2Pac

Lil Wayne The Carter Documentary Coming Soon + Compares Weezy To 2Pac

Super producer turned movie director QD3 is gearing to unleash a barrage of DVD projects in the next few months. Taking a break from the highly successful Beef DVD series, QD3 told Hip-Hop Wired exclusively:

“We got a Lil’ Wayne film that we just finished that we took to Sundance that’ll be coming out real soon and then we have two other films. One that’s about urban skateboarding called Concrete Jungle with guys like T.K. (Terry Kennedy) blowing up. We did a documentary on that because we felt like the whole skate movement is a real nice alternative to see another opportunity for inner city kids. Just like basketball and Hip-Hop, it’s another lane for us to take now. We want to help accelerate that movement in a big way and urban skateboarding is huge in California for sure.”

QD3 also made headlines several months back after legal battles over his authorized feature documentary The Carter, which focuses on the life of Lil Wayne. After the film was completed, Wayne filed a lawsuit over “scandalous portrayal” and stated that he was supposed to receive final approval over the film before its showing and that some footage could be detrimental to his reputation and career…in particular him sipping syrup throughout the film. The case eventually was rejected. Not focusing on the negative, QD3 maintained, “I can’t really speak on that but I think a lot of that was just miscommunication.” He further added to Hip-Hop Wired:

“The main thing that the documentary shows… I think a lot of people would imagine that Wayne is hanging out in clubs with a bunch of women and drinking champagne and that sort of thing. But I would say the main thing you learn when you watch the film is that Wayne is a workaholic. Straight up. After seeing this I think a lot of people will respect his process a lot more. We were with him like 7 or 8 months before he went platinum and then maybe two months after. That’s the period we were shooting him for and I remember one day when he got a text from Sylvia Rhone that he went platinum, he was like, “O.K.” He didn’t even flinch. He was “O.K., cool” and “get off my bus, I gotta record.”

His whole thing is he’s like tireless worker and a lot of people will be very surprised how he’s 100% dedicated to his craft and he’s also daring like when he’s on stage and in the studio, like there’s no boundaries for him creatively. I think when people see it they’re gonna have a whole different type of respect for him seeing him so young and successful yet staying truly focused on being good and becoming better. That’s the main thing and it’s not a whole lot of ego or fanfare about who he is as a star in the film at all. Wayne stays on his bus and he’s got a recording studio up there and that’s his life. So even if he pulls up at a hotel, sometimes he’ll be on the bus just to record.

I really gained a lot of respect for him in that regard in terms of how he approaches his records and then how hard he works. I would have to say…I worked with Tupac a lot and I feel like he may end up with a bigger catalogue than Tupac if he hasn’t already. That kid works, he’s a hard worker, super focused and doesn’t get caught up in the industry like that. He just stays in the studio all the time.”
