Nino Brown: The Road to Rikers, Part 2
On Saturday night, Lil Wayne and DJ Scoob Doo sent in a video clip featuring footage they shot that afternoon. Among other things, Wayne said it was time to party before he begins his expected one-year prison term at New York’s Rikers Island.
But in fact he was doing the exact opposite. Wayne was back at work, filming several more music videos before his sentencing on gun charges on Tuesday.
“I’m shooting seven videos today,” Wayne said in an exclusive new clip, shot in his trailer on the Miami video set.
One of the videos of the night was for the Rebirth track “Runnin’.”
“I’mma show y’all the [work] ethic of a true artist,” Wayne says in the clip. “You know what I’m talkin’ about? Seven videos. I shot 10 in two days before. Now we about to do seven in one night. [’Runnin’ ’] was one. Next we about to do Drake’s song called ’Afrika Boombatta.’ ”
The New Orleans Fireman then began mulling over his wardrobe for Drake’s shoot. He was deciding between one of his brand-new tees promoting his Twitter account, @liltunechi, or a funky interpretation of deceased legend Marilyn Monroe.
“Gotta wear one of my @liltunechi shirts on there,” Wayne said. ” ’Cause that song is a fun song. So I could wear that. Then again it’s Drake, so you might wanna get a little fly for his sh–.”
Wayne then pulled out a T-shirt featuring Monroe with tattoos all over her arm.
“Yeah, that’s stupid,” the Birdman Jr. said of the Monroe shirt. “I might have to rock that.”
This latest clip of Wayne starts with the acclaimed performer showing off all the BET Hip-Hop Awards in his house. Later he says he needs more VMAs.
“I got a house full of BET Awards,” Wayne said with a grin. “I got one MTV award. MTV, holla atcha boy now. I’m not gonna mess up your function. I’m just gonna come get my award, thank God, thank my ’hood, thank my fam. I ain’t gotta perform.
“Give me an award for nothin’,” he continued with a chuckle. ” ’The award for nothin’ goes to Lil Wayne.’ That’s all I need. MTV award for nothin’, man.”
Wayne and DJ Scoob Doo are also filming the reality DVD “The Nino Brown Story Part 3.” The first two installments are available at DJ Scoob Doo’s Web site.
