Lil Wayne might be wishing he had taken his deposition a little more seriously. According to TMZ, the Young Money front man has been ordered to pay $2.2 million to Quincy Jones III based on his countersuit, which said that Wayne blocked the release of Jones’ film “The Carter”, therefore infringing on the profits.
The rapper’s deposition tape made headlines last month, with many fans referring to Wayne’s dismissive and lackadaisical approach as “hilarious”. The judge, however, was not amused, calling him out for his “unreasonable conduct in the deposition” and “irresponsible behavior.”
Wayne originally sued Jones for the director’s “scandalous portrayal” of him in the 2009 documentary “The Carter”, as well as the unauthorized use of his music in the film.
