The Carter (Lil Wayne Documentary) and other ways to waste your time

Posted on February 16, 2010 by


So the snow is back in Boston, you don’t want to go anywhere, but you keep on asking yourself, “what the Hell should I do with my life.” Well, if you are anything like me you’ll probably want to spend that time learning something about society, culture, or bitches. Sadly, neither of these videos do any of that—but they do provide a break from thinking. First up is the Lil’ Wayne documentary, for once I thought wikipedia did a good job explaining something, albeit a short page:

“The Carter is a 2009 documentary film about Dwayne Michael Carter Jr., also known as Lil Wayne. The film was directed by Adam Bhala Lough. The Carter documents Lil Wayne in the period before and after the release of Tha Carter III. During the filming of The Carter, no interviews with Lil Wayne were conducted by the filmmakers who shot in a completely cinema verite style. Although he initially agreed to the film, it was later subject to a lawsuit by Carter, who objected to the film’s release after the first screening at the ’09 Sundance Film Festival. Evidently Carter’s attempts to block the film were a reaction to the film’s depiction of Carter’s heavy use of marijuana and cough syrup as recreational drugs. Despite Carter’s attempts the film was released on November 17, 2009. The independently distributed film topped iTunes movie charts in its first week of release and Huffington Post called it “one of the top five greatest hip-hop documentaries of all time.”

I wasn’t even sure if it was worth posting this documentary about religious hip-hop, but then I remembered as long as I can get one person to procrastinate even the most menial of tasks then I have done my job. So, in other words, get your friend to watch this documentary and tell you about it.
