Young Money's Drake will premiere his Lil Wayne-assisted "Miss Me" music video tomorrow (August 19) night.
The video will debut via MTV Thursday evening at 8 PM EST.
The clip was recorded in two sessions: one featuring Lil Wayne before the rapper turned himself in to start his yearlong prison sentence and another more recently in July as Drake put the finishing touches on the visual. The video is Drake's third overall from his debut album, Thank Me Later, following "Over" and "Find Your Love," both of which were directed by Anthony Mandler (Jay-Z, Mary J. Blige, Rihanna). (MTV)
According to reports last month, Drake was accompanied by fellow Young Money members Gutta Gutta and Mack Maine during the filming.
Video Crashers! We snuck in to the Drake's "Miss Me" Video shoot in Atlanta today. No camera's were aloud on the closed set, so feel blessed we made it happen. The red lights were bouncing off the white walls as Drake did his thing solo, without Lil Wayne? But no worries for Drake, his buddies were on the scene as well, Gutta Gutta & Mac Maine of Young Money. It's a typical Drake Video. We don't have too much else to say, due to strick secruity and the fact that no one except workers were there. Z, We got 'em! Team work .. ha ha. (Kore Magazine)
After filming his last video, "Find Your Love," in Jamaica, Drake donated $25,000 to help build a learning center in the city.
When THE WEEKEND STAR spoke to Drake he commented: "I had a great time when I was in Jamaica and the people of Cassava Piece showed me a lot of love. I just wanted to show back some love by helping out with Mavado's project on the Gullyside. It's a very positive move and something I am very happy to be a part of. Education is the key to life so to be able to assist in that process is very fulfilling." Two weeks ago Drake gave Mavado his contribution and since then construction has started in Cassava Piece. Mavado manager Julian Jones-Griffith added: "Obviously it's going to take more than what Drake gave so Mavado has contributed to it and pledges to put more towards it." Tentatively the name for the library is 'Drake and Mavado Peace Center'. (Meet Tha Dealer)
