Posted By on September 2, 2009

    Quincy "QD3" Jones III, the director of Lil Wayne's upcoming "The Carter" documentary, says that Weezy has a worth ethic that he compares to Tupac. Beyond Lil Wayne's hard work, QD3 says that fans can expect to see Weezy's dedication to music and his movements around the time of the release of his now multi-platinum "Tha Carter III" album.

    "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.," QD3 says. [Lil Wayne – The Carter Documentary – Trailer – Watch Here]

    "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."
