Lil Wayne - Lil Wayne Files Lawsuit Against Quincy Jones' Son

Rapper Lil Wayne has filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against the son of legendary music mogul Quincy Jones.
The Lollipop hitmaker is taking producer Quincy Jones Iii to court amid allegations he used tracks from the rap star's hit album Tha Carter IV in an unauthorised documentary about him, The Carter, without obtaining permission.
According to Tmz.com, the Grammy winner is seeking unspecified damages and a court injunction banning producers from using his tunes.
This is not the first time Lil Wayne has taken issue with Quincy Jones Iii's project - in 2009, ahead of its release, he sued members of Jones' Qd3 Entertainment group for fraud and breach of contract, after the filmmakers reportedly reneged on a deal to give the rapper final approval of the documentary, which his representatives denounced as a "scandalous portrayal" of the MC.
