Artists, lay off that stuff, really. If you don’t know know what “stuff” is, then you really need to lay off that “stuff.” Lol!

AML people, we go inside the anatomy of a case in the pre-trial phase so you really appreciate this hilarious clips of Lil’ Wayne.

PRE-TRIAL in the Lil’ Wayne v. Quincy Jones Lawsuit

1. Okay, you are Quincy Jones and you make a video about Lil’ Wayne chronicling his life. You get sued by Lil’ Wayne who says your depiction of him was VERY wrong.

2. You “answer,” usually within 30days to the lawsuit and you say, “what kind of drugs is Plaintiff on? I have no clue what he is talking about.”

3. Your lawyer says, I agree. Plaintiff is really on “something.” The law once you “answer” denying the allegations, allows an investigatory period so both sides can gather information and prepare to do court battle. There are many tools to use to gather facts to get your opponent in court. One such tool is a DEPOSITION. A deposition is basically an out of court statement, under oath, that is transcribed and later used in court to impeach (i.e. I gotcha!) your opponent, among other things.

Now, usually, people answer or try to answer the questions posed by the opponent’s attorney who calls for the deposition. In Lil’ Wayne’s case, he is on a “long tin” as in, his answers are funny and can actually hurt him. It could also be tactical and deliberate to frustrate the other side and prevent them from getting much information to later say in court, “aha! gotcha.” Either way, his responses are funny.

Lil’ Wayne WHO SUED Quincy Jones in this case, accuses Quincy Jones’ lawyer of asking “stupid-ass questions.” Lol! He also says his line of questioning is “something out of (his) ass.” #Dead. Lol! This is not typical, at all, in depositions.

He doesn’t wait for the lawyer to finish posing questions and when he is told to do so, he says it is his “psychic abilities” that is intervening and allowing him to know what questions will be posed in advance. Looool! The boy got jokes for days, clearly. He never recalls anything. (This is actually being stubborn and unresponsive). As if that is not enough, he threatens the lawyer and when the lawyer confronts him, he falls back. Lol! All of this from a man who claims, in the deposition, that he has “God on speed dial.” Loooool!

AML artists, stay in school, really and do get off that weed. It’ll mess with your head.

(NOTE: The lawyer could have easily fixed the “do you recall” questions when Lil’ Wayne was playing tough by just saying “Isn’t it true” you were _____fill in the blank.” However, I am unsure of the whole facts of the case and why the lawyer felt “do you recall” was the better approach.)
