Video: Lil Wayne – ‘Krazy’

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne has lost his mind. The Young Money boss unleashes the wild video for his Carter V single “Krazy.” While wearing a strait-jacket, Weezy is dragged through an insane asylum in the Colin Tilley-directed clip, which was inspired by the 1975 film One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest.

“This is the first video from Carter V. It’s not about anyone being crazy, although I guess some people think the things I do are crazy,” said Wayne. “I thought the idea of being in a strait-jacket would work for this song, so that’s what we did.”

Tilley added, “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. It’s more of the psychological trip that Lil Wayne’s going through in this place.”

The song is set to appear on Tha Carter V, due later this year. Just last week, he debuted his new single “Grindin” featuring Drake.

Grindin

Just hours before they kick off their co-headlining “Drake Vs. Lil Wayne” tour in Buffalo, New York, Lil Wayne joins forces with Drizzy once again on his new Carter V single “Grindin.” Following their last collaboration “Believe Me,” the YMCMB all-stars share blood, sweat, and tears on the dark hustlers’ anthem, produced by Boi-1da and Vinylz.

After enlisting the services of Kobe Bryant and Floyd Mayweather Jr., Tunechi called on Kevin Durant to unveil the cover art on his Instagram account.

The tourmates have also released an interactive app, which will give fans the power to decide who starts the show, who wins the show, and whose side they are on.

Tha Carter V stills awaits a release date, but Wayne has been in the studio with Nicki Minaj, Christina Milian, and Mannie Fresh.

“I’m still nervous about Tha Carter V,” he told XXL. “I’m confident about what I do, but I’m still nervous about what people think.”

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.
