Part-time rapper, full-time skateboard enthusiast Lil Wayne is suing Quincy Jones III, the son of the Quincy Jones you’ve heard of, because, according to XXL Mag, “the rapper is claiming that he never gave the filmmaker permission to use his music in a 2009 documentary titled Tha Carter.” Weezy initially agreed to the film, but later objected because he felt it cast him in a negative light, spending too much time focusing on his then-reliance on marijuana and cough syrup and not enough time on sweet kick-flips, or something.
In June, Wayne was called in for a deposition, where he fielded questions from Jones’s lawyer, Pete Ross, Rick Ross’s nerdy white cousin. Things got uncomfortable, then funny, then weird, then dangerous, then funny again, but mostly: Wayne uses the WUT? strategy to answer everything, which is kind of brilliant. Also, insane. The video, via TMZ, and the best answers are below.
#1. “I don’t know, but I do know I performed at this bad ass bitch birthday party recently. She was crazy, stupid thick.”
#2. “I’m sorry. That’s my psychic.”
#3. “He can’t save you.” “And what does that mean?” “I was talking to myself.”
#4. “Sorry, sir, no, I’m a superstar — people hire them themselves to photograph me.”
#5. “You know he can’t save you, right? In the real world? That guy, right there.”
