Lil Wayne Is All Smiles in VMA Promo Shoot

Lil Wayne is over the moon about his two VMA nominations. Weezy F. Baby was grinning from ear to ear while shooting his promo for the 2011 MTV Video Music Awards, playing the guitar and holding a Moonman while wearing denim shorts and a straw hat. He will release his long-awaited album Tha Carter IV immediately following his performance on the show, airing live from Los Angeles on August 28 at 9 p.m.

Check out some behind-the-scenes pics from the set and watch Wayne unleash his inner rock star in the promo video.
