Birdman’s “Fire Flame” video has earned plenty of spins, and now that the Cash Money CEO’s “son” Lil
Wayne is home from prison , the duo have paired up for a remix clip. MTV News commandeered footage from the video, courtesy of photographer Derick G, and members of the Cash Money/ Young Money camp were in good spirits on the set.
“It’s amazing, can’t believe n—as are using real cars and sh–, you know times have changed,” Wayne joked, marveling at the sports cars being utilized in the clip’s fiery scenes.
The video looks to be a performance clip that alternates between shots of a set where a red car is parked on a black set peppered with fiery lights and a raised stage where the MCs trade bars, flanked by members of the Cash Money/ Young Money camp.
“The addition to this song is, of course, Lil Wayne and the anticipation of his first video [since he got out of prison],” Gil Green, the clip’s director, said as he prepared for the shoot. “I haven’t even spoken to him since he’s been out. I look forward to seeing him and working with him again … The song’s called ’Fire Flame’ so you’re in our fire room. Right now, it doesn’t look like much but in a few seconds … it’s going to be incredible. It’s going to get real hot in here.”
Meanwhile, Young Money president Mack Maine revealed, “The first one was a movie and this one’s the sequel.”
DJ Khaled also was on hand. “Shout to Weezy, Birdman. I love this record because it’s that hood sh–,” he said. “Right now they have this whole ’Fire Flame’ scene going on that’s so crazy. It’s only right they’re doing big things.”
