Lil Wayne Sues Producers of The Carter Documentary for Using His Music Without Permission

Lil Wayne is reported to have made his second attempt to sue the producers who created the 2009 documentary titled, “The Carter”.  The documentary, which was created in part by Quincy Jones III who headed the production, details the life of Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., aka. Lil Wayne, and his evolution as an artist in the rap industry.

His first attempt to sue the producers on the basis of “poor portrayal” of him failed, and the judge tossed it out of the court.  Now he’s brought it back to court and is suing for unauthorized use of his music in his own documentary.
