Lil Wayne documentary gets release date and film trailer – video

'The Carter' to be released on DVD next week

A documentary about Lil Wayne is being released next week – and you can see the trailer by scrolling down.

Called ‘The Carter’, the documentary captures the rapper on and offstage, as well as reportedly showing Wayne‘s addiction to cough syrup.

The documentary, which is being released on DVD, was originally planned for a general cinematic release, but the film was hit with a lawsuit.

In the lawsuit Wayne tried to prevent the release of the film – claiming producers had broken a contract giving him control over the final edit of the documentary, but his request has now been rejected.

Pre-orders for the film are currently being taken by QD3 and are set to ship on November 17, although at the moment it’s only available to those in the US.
