David Banner is speaking out against a rumor that he is filing a lawsuit against legendary producer Quincy Jones.
According to Banner, the rumors, which state that he is suing Jones’s QD3 Entertainment and Virgil Films for using some of his songs in the Lil Wayne documentary The Carter, are “completely false.”
In an interview with XXLmag.com, Banner states that has no bad feelings towards Quincy Jones or his entertainment company QD3.
“Me and Quincy talked three days ago. Quincy’s my homie, Wayne is my homie, whatever’s going on between them, I don’t know what that is, but they are both very close friends of mine. And that [lawsuit] is not true, at all.”
In addition, Banner also cleared up the rumors surrounding Cash Money and the non-payment claims by other producers for their work on Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter 3 album.
David Banner states that he has been paid and that he looks forward to working with Cash money in the future.
“Everything between me and Cash Money has been beautiful,” he continued in the interview. “I haven’t had any problems. Baby and Slim have been good to me. Wayne has been good to me.”
In other news, David Banner has been tapped by Gatorade for his music to be featured in their new ad campaign “Evolve.”
The song, “Evolve”, which was inspired by the ad campaign, was written, arranged and produced by David Banner and will be featured in a series of commercials for the now infamous sports drink.
In addition to writing songs for Gatorade, the Mississippi bred emcee has also teamed up with 9th Wonder for the collaboration project Death of a Pop Star, due out later this year.
