Behind the Video: Lil Wayne – ‘Krazy’

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne has lost his mind. MTV News was on set as the Young Money captain shot the wild video for “Krazy,” which takes place in a psych ward. Tunechi struggles to remove himself from a strait-jacket while strapped into a chair.

“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,” said Wayne.

Director Colin Tilley came up with the concept, which draws from the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest starring Jack Nicholson.

“We talked about putting Lil Wayne in a psych ward and I definitely took some inspiration from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, just as far as the look and feel for it,” said Tilley. “It’s more of the psychological trip that Lil Wayne’s going through in this place.”

The song is set to appear on Weezy’s upcoming album Tha Carter V.

Prior to the album’s release, he will hit the road with Drake on the “Drake Vs. Lil Wayne” tour starting August 8.

Rehearsals kicked off over the weekend. “First day of Drake vs. Lil Wayne rehearsals were INCREDIBLE,” tweeted Drake. “Can’t wait for the people to see it.”

Lil Wayne, Christina Milian Step Out to Dinner in Beverly Hills

Christina Milian and Lil Wayne

The rumor mill is buzzing about Lil Wayne and Christina Milian. After attending the ESPYS earlier this month, the Young Money labelmates were spotted leaving dinner at Mastro’s Steakhouse in Beverly Hills on Sunday night. Milian exited first, while Weezy looked surprise to see the paparazzi waiting outside.

While the photos may suggest otherwise, TMZ claims that the two are not dating and that it’s all part of Wayne’s plan to build buzz for Milian’s music. When asked if she was dating her YMCMB boss, the newly single Milian said, “We make music together,” but didn’t deny the rumors.

The “Dip It Low” singer is working on a mixtape called Tina Turn Up that will consist of “some good party records” that won’t be on her upcoming Young Money debut.

She recently quoted some lyrics: “Oooo Boy You’re on [fire]… But I’m Not Scared Hold Me Tighter.. Your Loves so [fire].. But I’m Right Here #HoldMeTighter — #TinaTurnUp.”

Check out more pics of Tina Turn Up and Tunechi on the town.

Young Money’s youngest signee Reginae Carter stole the spotlight from her father when she accepted the award for Best Group at Sunday’s BET Awards.

Now Lil Wayne introduces his daughter as part of his Weezy Wednesdays series. The 15-year-old singer, who was a former member of the OMG Girlz, shows that she’s her own boss in the video for her first single “Mind Goin’ Crazy.”

Reginae, who is a spokeswoman for Hairfinity, even has her own group of fans, the Reginaetors, and is working on her Young Money debut Becoming Reginae.
