Video: Tyga f/ Lil Wayne & Nicki Minaj – ‘Senile’

Lil Wayne, Nicki Minaj, and Tyga

Young Money has gone crazy. Tyga, Lil Wayne, and Nicki Minaj unleash the bizarre video for “Senile,” the latest release off their compilation Rise of an Empire. In the Colin Tilley-directed clip, the rap all-stars play characters in their own wacky worlds.

Tyga smokes the hookah with some hippies and performs alongside the JabbaWockeeZ.

Nicki channels a chola, completing her gangster look with a Barbie tattoo across her stomach, as she swings on the playground. She also plays a Moschino-clad dominatrix and kicks back on a lawn chair with Tyga and Tunechi.

Lil Wayne is the odd man out as he sits down to dinner and poses for a portrait with his white trash family.

“It’s just basically like some old Addams Family-type, trailer-park trash and Wayne is just like in these different houses going crazy,” Tyga told MTV News.

Justin Bieber is racking up his hip-hop collaborations. After logging studio time with T.I., Rick Ross, Diddy, Wale, and T-Pain, the pop superstar hit the studio for a late-night session with Lil Wayne.

“Me and Tunechi in the studio,” wrote the Canadian crooner, who previously collaborated with Weezy on “Backpack” for his Journals album.

After pulling an all nighter, the singer and rapper were seen exiting the Hit Factory in Miami around 6 a.m. on Friday morning. Draped in a blanket, Bieber was greeted by fans and paparazzi on his way out.

Earlier this month, the Biebs was in the lab with Birdman, working on a collaboration with Cash Money heartthrob Austin Mahone.

Soulja Boy was also spotted leaving the same studio with Atlanta rapper Diamond. He posted a pic of him and the Biebs wearing matching Giuseppe Zanotti kicks, posing in front of the $2 million Bugatti that Birdman loaned Bieber.
