Lil Wayne Shot Several Clips before Going to Prison
Before he begins to spend a one-year sentence at Rikers Island in New York, Lil Wayne sent a video clip to MTV. It contains a footage of music videos he had previously shot with DJ Scoob Doo.
Wayne once said that he’d have a party before undergoing his prison term on gun charges on Tuesday. But he worked instead, shooting several more music videos.
“I’m shooting seven videos today,” said Wayne. One of the video was for the Rebirth’s track Runnin.
“I’mma show y’all the (work) ethic of a true artist,” Wayne says in the clip. “You know what I’m talkin’ about? Seven videos. I shot 10 in two days before. Now we about to do seven in one night. (Runnin) was one. Next we about to do Drake’s song called Africa Boombatta.”
Wayne then chose the wardrobe he was about to wear for the clips. It was between tees promoting his Twitter account, @liltunechi, or a funky interpretation of deceased legend Marilyn Monroe.
“Gotta wear one of my @liltunechi shirts on there,” Wayne said. “‘Cause that song is a fun song. So I could wear that.”
In the first scene of his latest clip Wayne makes an appearance by showing off all the BET Hip-Hop Awards in his house. He later said that he needed more VMAs. “I got a house full of BET Awards,” he said. “I got one MTV Award. MTV, holla atcha boy now. I’m not gonna mess up your function. I’m just gonna come get my award, thank God, thank my ‘hood, thank my fam. I ain’t gotta perform. Give me an award for nothin’. The award for nothin’ goes to Lil Wayne. That’s all I need. MTV Award for nothin’, man.”
