Lil Wayne has filmed footage for nearly 20 videos to be released during his forthcoming jail sentence — which was postponed again Tuesday (March 2) due to a courthouse fire — and the blitz began Monday with the premiere of Young Money’s graphic-novel-inspired “Roger That” clip.
The clip features Nicki Minaj, Tyga and Wayne in a green-screen-heavy version of the 2005 film “Sin City.” Nicki, stationed in a black-and-white, oversaturated depiction of Manhattan, raps first from a heart-shaped bed and then from the first-class section of an airplane. Her pink hair swings as she rhymes, “Just hopped off the plane came back from Vancouv/ Little white tees, some boobs and bamboos/ White girls tell me, ‘Hey, Nicki, your camp rules!’ ”
Stationed in a sketched version of Los Angeles, Tyga is next up in the clip and is dressed as a pilot in a leather bomber jacket and aviator glasses. In the next scene, the heavily tattooed rapper performs in a nightclub to an all-female audience that looks straight out of a noir detective novel. “Young black ricos kill for the C-notes/ But me, though, I jack son/ … She wanna play games, but this is not bingo,” Tyga spits.
Finally, Weezy himself raps voraciously, sporting a black baseball cap and white tee. “I’m a beast, you a pet, long neck, Keith Sweat/ Weezy f—ing Baby, capo in this bitch/ Money talks so have a convo in this bitch wit’ me,” the MC raps while bouncing around on the screen.
This might have been just one video in a long line of clips, but Wayne and the crew look like they had a great time. Hopefully, that feeling will last for the entirety of the New Orleans rapper’s impending sentence.
