Rare in life are those moments that just bring people together…like the way we’ve all bonded over Lil Wayne’s deposition footage.
Yesterday, we posted 5 minutes of Lil Wayne in a mental battle with Pete Ross, a lawyer for filmmaker QD3. Weezy is suing Q (that’s Quincy Jones’ son, and all around nice guy) for his fascinating 2009 documentary The Carter.
First Wayne was all on board with the film, opening up his life, his family, his creative process and his vices to the film crew. But when the end result was a bit too raw, he called it a “scandalous portrayal” and claimed he didn’t give permission. Now Wayne is also suing for illegal use of his music….
Well, thank you, Patron Saints of Litigation! Without you, we’d never see Lil Wayne tell Pete Ross that he can’t remember spending a year at Rikers. That he doesn’t hire photographers because he’s a super star (very accurate). And that the lawyer won’t have anyone to save him in real life. (Weezy later claimed he was just talking to himself, LOL)
So. Much. Gold. Watch it over and over and over, right here.
But TMZ released another clip…
And this time, Lil Wayne namesdrops a pretty influential member of his entourage….
Watch it after the jump…
(Lawyer) And who did you tell? Do you have any idea?
(Weezy) No. I just told the people that handles those situations for me.
(Lawyer) Who would that have been?
(Weezy) That would be the peoples that handles those situations for me.
(Lawyer) Can you name some names?
(Weezy) Sorry, I can’t recall the names off top.
(Lawyer) Who are the people that likely would be told by you?
(Weezy) The first person that likely that would have been told by me would be God because I tell him everything. (Lawyer: Who is that?) God. G.O.D.
(Lawyer) Oh, as in God who rules over us all.
(Weezy) Yes Sir.
(Lawyer) And you do you remember in particular what you told to God that you didn’t like about the documentary?
(Weezy) No, I don’t.
