It’s getting heated between Lil Wayne and Quincy Jones III’s son. According to TMZ, Q used Wayne’s music without his permission. Ironically enough, the music was used in a documentary film about Lil Wayne.

But it seems Q just “Dontgetit.” Lil Wayne claims Quincy and producers never bothered to ask if they could use his tunes for the film. Music featured in the film includes songs from Lil Wayne’s multi-platinum album The Carter III, including “Lollipop,” “Dontgetit,” and “Stuntin’ Like My Daddy,” among several others.

It appears Lil Wayne cooperated in making the film at first since he allowed cameras to follow him around, but as it turned out, Lil Wayne felt the movie was a “scandalous portrayal” of him.

As a result, he decided to sue for unspecified damages while attempting to prohibit producers from using his music.
