On Friday (July 31), Lil Wayne partnered with his Young Money buddies Guda Guda and Jay Jones for the band’s latest video, The Life of a Thug.
Shot in Wayne’s skate park, Weezy is in pure form, delivering high-octane rapeseed at a frantic pace. “I want pictures of my baby on a $ 100 bill / My lazy beats teach my crazy beats how to cool off,” he said. With his styrofoam cup in hand, he later speeds up his hypnotic rhythm before Jay Jones enters with his own verse. Shortly afterwards, the rhythm intensified and Guda Guda and Wayne began trading bars over the ominous soundscape.
Two weeks ago, Wayne ended his first season on Young Money radio with an interview with Birdman. The two talked about the possibility of making a sequel to their 2006 joint album. As a father as a son“I want this to be my farewell thing,”
After the end of Wayne’s Young Money Radio show – which previously featured interviews with Drake, 50 Cent, Migos, Nicki Minaj and others – Weezy congratulated his fans for tuning.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making this biggest debut of the first season of any EVER podcast or radio show,” Wayne wrote gratefully on Instagram.
