Lil Wayne Lets You Lick The “Rapper”

Maybe you’ve always wondered what Lil Wayne looks like while he’s prepping for a night out. Maybe Lil Wayne was wondering — he never remembers — and that’s why this clip starts out the way it does. But the real deal here, beyond the brutal simplicity of the track, is that custom limo Lil’ Wheezy climbs into after his scalp prep.

Lil Wayne, “Lollipop” (Cash Money/Universal, 2008)

Maybe you’ve always wondered what Lil Wayne looks like while he’s prepping for a night out. Maybe Lil Wayne was wondering — he never remembers — and that’s why this clip starts out the way it does. But the real deal here, beyond the brutal simplicity of the track, is that custom limo Lil’ Wheezy climbs into after his scalp prep. It’s like a GMC TopKick gone monster and mental, a strip club on wheels and the culmination of 4000 hip-hop videos trying to one-up each other with their motor vehicle choices. It won’t last; it’ll last as long as one of Wayne’s follow-up singles, where he’ll pilot a 28-person ATV, or maybe a yacht with metal legs. In his head, he’s already polishing the chrome. — Thomas Rooker White
