Lil Wayne puts his dukes up in the video for “6 Foot 7 Foot,” the first single from Tha Carter IV, due this spring. The rapper portrays a boxer in the first images from the highly-anticipated clip, which seems to be inspired by the award-winning film The Fighter starring Mark Wahlberg.
Hype is building for the visuals, said to be amongst Weezy’s most ambitious to date. Featured guest Cory Gunz, his father/manager Peter Gunz, and the rest of the Young Money crew make cameos.
“I would love to tell everybody the concept, but there will be people trying to get the idea and put it out before 6 Foot 7 Foot’ drops,” Wayne’s videographer DJ Scoob Doo told MTV RapFix. “But once people see 6 Foot 7 Foot,’ I guarantee that it’s going to be a game changer.”
Tunechi is looking forward to debuting the vid, which was shot in Miami. “I have a few costume changes in the video, very different from videos you’ve seen me do. Can’t wait for everyone to see the video,” he wrote.
