On Set of Birdman's 'Y.U. Mad' Video with Nicki Minaj and Lil Wayne
Birdman pulls out more stunts in the flashy video for “Y.U. Mad,” co-starring two of his YMCMB all-stars. Nicki Minaj transforms into the “female Weezy” with blonde dreads, tattoos, and jewelry, and Weezy himself stands out in a furry red ski hat, camouflage-framed glasses, and belt with a smiley face buckle.
In the Gil Green-directed clip, which was shot in Miami, the Cash Money CEO counts his paper at a long table with Young Money president Mack Maine and rides in a white Maybach with Nicki.
The bombastic track is the first single from Birdman’s upcoming album Bigga Than Life. “Nicki gave me that song. She called me one day like, ‘Stunna, I got a record for you I think you would like,'” Baby told MTV News. “I jumped on it and put my son on it. I liked it from the start. Working with Nicki is just special anyway and I felt good about it, so we rocked with it.”
