“I Don’t Recall”: 5 Hilarious Quotes From Lil Wayne’s Deposition (Video)Posted by Nathan S. on 09/25/12 | Filed under Top Stories, Humor, Lil Wayne
I was going to save this for this week's "General Awesomeness", but I just couldn't wait. As a quick bit of background, Lil Wayne is suing Quincy Jones' production company over the making of that "Carter" documentary, and for allegedly using unlicensed songs in the documentary.
When Quincy Jones' lawyer, Pete Ross, sits down with Weezy for a deposition interview about the case, Wayne decides to be as big of a dick as possible because fuck it, why be nice to an opposing lawyer, especially when there are millions of dollars on the line? Still, this is Lil Wayne we're talking about, so he takes being an uncooperative witness to the next level.
In addition to "not recalling" anything that's ever happened in his life...ever...Lil Wayne lays down some of the greatest quotes you're ever going to hear in a deposition video. (I know, not exactly a big category, but still...)
Interviewer: "Is that an interviewer that you actually gave with Katie Couric."
Lil Wayne: "Is that an interview that I actually gave with Katie Couric? What's your name? Pete Ross? That's a stupid ass question."
Interviewer: "Did you perform at the Virgin Mobile Music Fest in 2008?"
Lil Wayne: "I don't know, but I know I did perform at this bad ass bitch birthday party recently. She was crazy, stupid thick."
Interviewer: "Do you remember that you pleaded guilty to attempted criminal possession of a weapon?"
Lil Wayne: "I don't recall that."
Lil Wayne: "He can't save you."
Interviewer: "What does that mean?"
Lil Wayne: "I was talking to myself."
And, to close things out, perhaps the greatest quote in rapper deposition video history:
Interviewer: "Isn't it something that you would remember if your album, 'The Carter 3', was the biggest selling album of the year in 2008?"
Lil Wayne: "Isn't it something that I would remember that? Isn't that a personal opinion type question? I would be actually answering the question to 'isn't it something?' That's my question? 'Isn't it something?' Yeah, it's something out of your ass."
Touche Wayne, touche. Looks like someone was captain of their high school debate team.
