lil wayneI don't know about you, but I'm shocked -- SHOCKED -- not to mention APPALLED, to hear that Lil Wayne lost his case against Quincy Jones III. You know, the one over Jones' allegedly "scandalous" documentary about the rapper? Lil Wayne LOST. Even after that now-legendary deposition video in which Weezy responded to pretty much every question out of Jones' lawyer's mouth with a cunningly cryptic, "I don't recall." Inconceivable! And you know what's worse? Lil Wayne also lost the countersuit Jones filed against him, and he now owes Jones a whopping $2,195,000. Easy baby, I'm just trying to keep my bread cheesy baby! Jeez, it's enough to give a guy a seizure! On an airplane, even!

Speaking of seizures ... funny thing, those.

Apparently Lil Wayne's "medical issues" are sort of the reason why he lost the lawsuit. Because the seizures kept him from appearing in court, so Weezy's lawyer was forced to show the judge that (effing hilarious) deposition video. And, uh, the judge? Let's just say he didn't laugh as hard as I did.

What's a gangsta supposed to do now?! That's a hefty price to pay, yo. Poor Weezy gonna be tradin' those lobsters and shrimps for Kool-Aid and chicken! Seriously. What if his Escalade gets impounded?!

But the real question here, I think, is a philosophical one, sort of. Did Lil Wayne doom himself to a financially fraught future when he wrote the following lyrics?

Money on my mind
Money on my mind
Money on my mind
Money money on my mind
Money on my mind
Money on my mind
Money money on my mind
So money is all I think of

Indeed. That's some heavy sh*t. Yo.

Do you think Lil Wayne should pay Quincy Jones III over two million dollars?
