Lil Wayne Sues Quincy Jones' Son Over Unauthorized Music In 'The Carter' Documentary

Lil Wayne has been in some legal trouble lately, and today he finds him in the middle of another lawsuit, only this time he's the one siccing lawyers on a defendant. 

According to TMZ, he hip-hop star is suing Quincy Jones' son Quincy Jones III for unauthorized use of his songs...that were ironically used in a film about him called The Carter. He claims that none of the documentary's producers bothered to ask permission for the music, which included a number of songs like "Lollipop," "Stuntin' Like My Daddy," "Pussy Monster," "Let The Beat Build," "La La," "Mr. Carter," "A Milli," and "Dontgetit," which were all featured on Weezy's multi-platinum album, Tha Carter III

Even though it appears like Wayne consented to the film's production (he let cameras follow him around), it turns out he hated the movie and sued over it, claiming it was a "scandalous portrayal" of him. 

In the suit, Lil Wayne asks for unspecified damages and an order prohibiting the producers from using his music.
