Some recently released Lil Wayne footage is causing a buzz on the Web when it shows him, embroiled in a legal battle against Quincy Jones III, stubbornly repeating the same answers to a series of “do you recall” questions from Quincy’s lawyer Pete Ross during a court deposition.
Weezy said “I don’t recall” or “I don’t remember” again and again when the attorney tried to make him confirm his runs-in with the law including his 2010 jail stint on Rikers Island. Looking bored and slouching on the table, he blurted “I don’t know” even before the next question was fired.
When he was asked by the judge to wait for Ross to ask the question, Weezy shrugged it off, “I’m sorry, that’s my psychic.” While he claimed he had no recollection of those events asked by the lawyer, he did remember performing at “this badass b**** birthday party recently. She was crazy stupid thick.”
At one point, he was asked to verify whether or not he had given an interview with Katie Couric. “That’s a stupid a** question,” he mocked the lawyer while pointing to a TV that seemed to show the interview tape. “You just saw me on there giving an interview with her.”
In addition to Weezy obviously coming across as to not wanting to answer to any more “stupid a**” questions, the rapper also appeared to have made a threat against the Lawyer’s life.
“You know he can’t save you right,” he said before pointing to the judge. “In the real world, that guy right there, he can’t save you in the real world.” When asked if it was a threat, he said it was not, adding, “I was talking to myself.”
Weezy sued Quincy for making a documentary about his life while he recorded his 2008 album “Tha Carter III”. The rapper called the film a “scandalous portrayal.”
