[artist id=”1233850″]Birdman[/artist], [artist id=”510062″]Lil Wayne[/artist] and [artist id=”2545682″]Drake[/artist] together on one track equals a multi-million dollar lineup. So it only makes sense that the trio talk dollars on Birdman’s track, “Money to Blow,” the latest single from his Pricele$$ LP, which is set for release next month.
The pricey video for the track was recently shot in Miami at the same time that the posse filmed the video for Drake’s “Forever” (from the LeBron James documentary, “More Than a Game”), which also features Wayne along with Kanye West and Eminem.
In the Gil Green-directed “Money to Blow” clip — which debuted on MTV.com on Tuesday (September 29) — Drake kicks things off, rocking an all-black outfit against a milky white backdrop.
“I am on a 24-hour champagne diet/ Spilling while I’m sipping, I encourage you to try it/ I’m probably just saying that ’cause I don’t have to buy it/ The club owner supplies it, boy I’m on that fly sh–,” Drake says in an Auto-Tuned croon.
Drake’s movements are kept to a minimum, of course; the video was shot just before he underwent surgery to repair ligaments he tore in his knee over the summer.
Birdman (a.k.a. Baby), though, does anything but stand still. The Cash Money co-CEO sways side-to-side, tossing wads of cash while standing between a pearl Lamborghini and matching Maybach.
The track first leaked online featuring just Drake and Lil Wayne, but the Drumma Boy-produced number is now firmly in Birdman’s possession as he spits, “Kept stuntin’, more money, burn it up.”
Weezy closes out the clip in money chamber of sorts, joined by his Young Money cohorts Lil Twist and Lil Chuckee.
“Well, I get paid every 24 hours, money and the power/ Come in VIP and get a champagne shower/ I don’t have to worry because everything is ours,” Wayne boasts.
