Lil Wayne “The Carter” Director On Rapper’s Work Ethic, “He May End Up W/ A Bigger Catalogue Than Tupac”
Film director Quincy “QD3” Jones III recently spoke on Lil Wayne‘s upcoming The Carter documentary and said fans should expect to witness the non-stop work ethic of the self-proclaimed “Greatest Rapper Alive.”
According to QD3, the film will also show Wayne’s dedication to music around the release of his platinum-seling Tha Carter III.
The main thing that the documentary shows — I think a lot of people would imagine that Wayne is hanging out in clubs with a bunch of women and drinking champagne and that sort of thing. But I would say the main thing you learn when you watch the film is that Wayne is a workaholic. Straight up. After seeing this I think a lot of people will respect his process a lot more. We were with him like seven or eight months before he went platinum and then maybe two months after. That’s the period we were shooting him for and I remember one day when he got a text from Sylvia Rhone that he went platinum, he was like, ‘O.K.’ He didn’t even flinch. He was ‘O.K., cool’ and ‘get off my bus, I gotta record’ His whole thing is he’s like tireless worker and a lot of people will be very surprised how he’s 100 percent dedicated to his craft…I really gained a lot of respect for him in that regard in terms of how he approaches his records and then how hard he works. I worked with Tupac a lot and I feel like he may end up with a bigger catalogue than Tupac if he hasn’t already. That kid works, he’s a hard worker, super focused and doesn’t get caught up in the industry like that. He just stays in the studio all the time.” (Hip Hop Wired)
