Grammy-winning rapper Lil Wayne recently spoke on rushing to shoot music videos in anticipation of his delayed one-year jail sentencing yesterday.
Speaking with radio personality Tim Westwood, Weezy said it boils down to setting goals.
"Ah man, determination," Wayne explained in an interview last weekend. "You set a goal, I'm actually one of those types of people that don't stop until the goal is done. I set that goal and have to finish it. I did five today, I think I did something yesterday. Tomorrow, I think I got a few tomorrow. And I shot a few in Atlanta, I shot one in Dallas. I shot some in LA, I shot like four in LA." (Tim Westwood TV)
Director David Rousseau recently spoke on shooting a handful of videos for Wayne prior to yesterday's delayed sentencing.
"We shot some sh-- from the [We Are Young Money compilation] album, we shot something from [Wayne's forthcoming] Tha Carter IV. Some stuff from [Wayne's recent LP] Rebirth," the director said in an interview. "We knew what our deadline was. We're trying to get maximum coverage for Wayne. Most of the time we only shot Wayne's verses -- we'll finish the rest of the videos off in the next couple of weeks." (MTV)
Prior to having his sentencing delayed, Wayne gave a farewell to his fans.
"I'm out this b*tch," he said. "To all my fans, my real fans, I really, really, really truly love you. I love you with all of me, for real. I'll probably be loving everything else because I love you so much. Thank you from the bottom [of my heart]. Do not forget about me 'cause I will forever think about you, and I cannot wait for you to see me again. I'm out." (UStream)
Young Money's Drake recently shared his views on Wayne heading to jail.
"I think you'll miss everything about Wayne," Drake suggested in an interview. "I don't think there will be anybody like Lil Wayne ever again in hip-hop. He paralyzes a room when he walks into it, his wordplay, the excitement that he brings to his music. I think that for eight months a lot of us will have to work a lot harder to keep hip-hop as exciting as it's been for the last two years. He's a strong-willed guy. I can imagine it would take a toll on anybody. I just hope that he comes out for the better." (Rolling Stone)
