Rapper Lil Wayne Pleads Guilty To Gun Charge

During filming Lil Wayne’s album sold 1 million copies in the first week it was released.  “He was completely calm,” QD3 said when Lil Wayne learned the news. “Most people would go crazy. He said “I’m recording now, what are you guys doing disturbing me?”

Already an underground hero, the film documents the album release that broke Lil Wayne into the mainstream.  He told producers “I want you guys to look at this with a fresh perspective. I’d rather you live with me with the cameras instead of a sit down interview.”

Breaking News

QD3 said of Lil Wayne, “He is a very private person; really, when he is on stage is the time when he is the most public.  All the rest of the time he’s just with a few friends.  It’s him and his music, he’s recording non-stop.  Even on his tour he goes to his hotel room and records all by himself.  He does one song after the next.  He is more private than you’d think.  He has fun and he hangs out and he does his ting but I would say that he’s not who you would envision from the videos.” 

Despite the lawsuit surrounding the film, QD3 spoke about Lil Wayne watching the film.  “He saw the film.  He liked it.  Our producer said he laughed and smiled throughout the whole movie.”

The Carter documentary is available on DVD.
