Young Money leader Lil Wayne is giving fans something to start getting excited about by releasing some behind-the-scenes footage to his upcoming “Krazy” music video this week. #stillkrazy
In the footage, Weezy F. Baby is shown building off the concept of 1975’s One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest flick.
Drawing inspiration from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, director Colin Tilley strapped a straight jacket on Wayne and turned the whole set into an insane asylum. “I’m not talking about being crazy in the song, I’m just talking about being me, and a lot of people view that as crazy so we just wanted to capture that and have fun with it,” Lil Wayne says about the song and video.

Despite previously claiming Carter V would be his last album, Wayne recently said fans could now expect at least one more release from him.
“This year, not only will I be dropping Tha Carter V — I’m dropping two albums,” Wayne said in a video. “This year, looking forward to two albums from me because I been out the game for a second. … Honestly, the reason why it became two albums is because I went to work on Tha Carter V and I don’t stop working. So it’s either Carter V would be 93 songs, or we’re gonna have to figure this out.” (Weezy Wednesdays)
Last month, Cash Money head Birdman gave his personal co-sign for C5.
“Jus leavin tha studio with my son C5. is AMAZIN ALBUM.Mula diff tha best rapper alive.Richgang YMCMB,” Baby tweeted June 13. (Baby’s Twitter)
Recently, Lil Wayne spoke on NBA star Kobe Bryant coming up with the idea of promoting his new LP as “Carter V Season” this spring.
“Carter V Season” was all Kobe. He came up with it. I saw that and thought, That’s dope as hell, so that’s what we’re calling the [album] campaign. I thanked him. Then we thought about Floyd. … Tha Carter V is about growth, flat-out. My thoughts are wiser. I still say what I want to say — it just sounds better and makes more sense. That all comes with growth and maturity.” (ESPN)
