David Banner NOT Suing Producer of Lil Wayne's Documentary
Rapper David Banner has shot down reports he is suing producer Quincy Jones III for using his music without permission in a documentary about Lil Wayne. Banner, real name Lavell Crump, reportedly teamed up with music producer Darius 'Deezle' Harrison to filed a copyright infringement lawsuit against Jones over his 2009 film "The Carter".
The heavyweight star co-wrote Lil Wayne's "La La" and "P**sy Monster" tracks, while Harrison helped to pen the Grammy-winning hit "Lollipop" - all of which are featured in the movie, which was distributed by Jones' QD3 Entertainment firm.
Reports suggested Banner and Harrison were seeking up to $150,000 for each infringement - but the hip-hop star is adamant there is no legal wrangle. He tells XXLmag.com, "Me and Quincy talked three days ago. Quincy's my homie, Wayne is my homie, whatever's going on between them, I don't know what that is, but they are both very close friends of mine. And that (lawsuit) is not true, at all."
Harrison is already locked in a court battle with Wayne - he's suing the incarcerated star over unpaid royalties stemming from his track "Mrs. Officer".
