Lil Wayne has long been known for his semi-crazy sense of humor, but a new deposition video that surfaced today is taking things to a new level. We’re still waiting for an official response on the validity of the clip, but Wayne, who is currently suing Quincy Jones III for unauthorized music usage in his 2009 documentary “The Carter,” is seen making an absolute mockery of Jones’ lawyer.Wayne, reportedly being questioned by lawyer Pete Ross, tears into the simple questions before derailing the deposition entirely. When asked if he performed at the Virgin Mobile Music Fest in 2008 with Kanye West, Wayne goes off the reservation. “I don’t know,” he answers. “But I know I did this perform at this badass b—h birthday party recently. She was crazy stupid thick.”
Questioned about his career and criminal history, Wayne is hilariously evasive in the clip. He claims to not recall his infamous arrest and gun bust in new York, which of course eventually lead to a eight-month sentence at Rikers Island. He eventually becomes so despondent that he repeats “I don’t know” over and over without letting the questions even go through.
As things completely break down, Wayne issues a flippant threat to the lawyer. Referring to a judge mediating the deposition, Wayne says, “You know he can’t save you, right? In the real world, he can’t save you.” When asked what that means, he says, “I don’t have to elaborate on that.”
Wayne is suing Jones for using his music in the unapproved “The Carter” documentary without permission. With inside access, Wayne clearly knew about the filming but disowned the final product, at one point calling it a “scandalous portrayal” of his life.
