Lil Wayne's '6 Foot 7 Foot' Video Premiere
Lil Wayne has finally released the official video to his hit record "6 Foot, 7 Foot".
The colorful video features cameos from members of the Young Money roster, including Lil Twist and Jae Millz as well as Bronx-bred rapper Cory Gunz, who handles the song's third verse. The inclusion of Gunz, who signed to Young Money last year, was a strategic move by Weezy to give the young MC a high-profile introduction similar to those given to past signees like Nicki Minaj and Drake.
The clip takes cues from the Oscar-winning Christopher Nolan film "Inception", incorporating similar slow-motion, dreamlike sequences. The song's plethora of punch lines also serve as inspiration in the video. For example, Weezy is seen reaching for what looks like a flying brain ("I lost my mind. It's somewhere out there stranded"), literally whispering into his own ear ("Talking to myself 'cause I am my own consultant") and standing at a podium ("I speak the truth but I guess that's a foreign language to y'all").
"6 Foot 7 Foot," produced by Bangladesh, is the lead single off the New Orleans MC's forthcoming album Tha Carter IV, due in stores later this year.
