Lil' Wayne DESTROYS Lawyers Grilling Him On Image And Relationship With Katy Perry!

This deleted sketch from Lil' Wayne's SNL episode is HIGHlarious!!

Is Andy Samberg voicing the clueless lawyer from off-screen??

Huh? What!? This is an actual deposition!? EVEN BETTER!

Hoping to embarrass him, Quincy Jones III's lawyers questioned Weezy's relationship with Katy Perry, or maybe it was Katie Couric — the shenanigans they accuse him of are all very confusing!!

Ch-ch-check out the rapper's LOLz-worthy response (above) as he flips the script on a confused legal team who suddenly sounds intimidated when Lil' Wayne's grill begins grilling them!!

Weezy is suing Quincy for unauthorized use of his music in a documentary about the rapper.

Lil Wayne Sues Over Use Of His Songs In Documentary… About Lil Wayne!

lil-wayne-lawsuit-documentary-royalty-quincy-jones.jpg

Ummmmm WHAT?!

Lil Wayne, lover of lawsuits, is suing Quincy Jones' son for using his songs in Quincy Jones III's documentary about Lil Wayne!!!

The biography film, titled The Carter, apparently featured a sh*t ton of hits from Lil Wayne's mega smash album Tha Carter III, which Mr. Wayne claims he never gave permission for Quincy to use.

Rumor has it, Wayne is simply pissed over the film's portrayal of him, thus he's trying to destroy the movie via lawsuit abuse!

Re-donkey-dickulous.

Quincy Jones VS Kanye West: Meow!

Filed under: Music MinuteKanye West

kanye-west-compared-to-quincy-jones.jpg

Quincy Jones about to join the ranks of countless entertainers on Kanye West's shit list.

In a recent interview, Quincy was asked to comment on Kanye in relation to himself. Specifically, the reporter tried to make the two sound as equals, as both of them consider themselves performers and producers. However, the reporter didn't even get halfway through the question, before Quincy stopped them and corrected the. He said:

"How man? No way. Did he write for a symphony orchestra? Does he write for a jazz orchestra? Come on, man. He’s just a rapper. There’s no comparison. I’m not putting him down or making a judgement or anything, but we come from two different sides of the planet. I spent 28 years learning my first skill. I don’t rap. It’s not the same thing. A producer has to have some sort of skills that enable him to be a producer. It’s totally different to know what to do with 16 woodwinds you know from piccolos down to bass clarinet. It’s a whole different mindset. No comparison. None."

Yeah…Kanye's not going to like this. True, Quincy makes it known that he simply asserts that they've just got different musical backgrounds, but we don't happen to think 'Ye will see it that way.

Or maybe he'll surprise it and just let it be. Quincy is an icon, after all. Wouldn't want to piss off one of the greats!
