You didn't think Lil Wayne was going to let a little hospital visit stop him, did you? On Tuesday, the Young Money rhyme animal will drop his 10th studio album, I Am Not a Human Being II, but before that, Tunechi and 2 Chainz will premiere their video for "R.A.F." on Friday at 6 a.m. on MTV2, MTV Jams and mtvU.
Weezy clearly spent some change on the video for his new song, which stands for "Rich as F---." In an exclusive teaser clip provided to MTV News, we see Wayne (skateboard in tow) camped out in the desert as his homey 2 Chainz sits atop a glowing cube surrounded by a pair of statuesque models.
"R.A.F." is another in a line of growing Tune and 2 Chainz collaborations. The pair first hooked up on Playaz Circle's 2007 hit "Duffle Bag Boy" and continued their musical reign together on "Yuck!," the opening track from Chainz's solo debut, Based on a T.R.U. Story.
"I knew Chainz so long, before I knew he was rapping," Wayne told MTV News during an interview in November. "When he came with his song, I gave him that 'Duffle Bag Boy' hook, and it's history from there."
"R.A.F." is the only Human Being II track that Weezy and Deuce collaborate on. The two also hook up on a track titled "Days and Days." Other album guests include Drake, Future, Gunplay and Soulja Boy.
YM president Mack Maine walked on to "RapFix Live" on Wednesday, and he's plenty excited about the new LP and said he believes Wayne has outdone himself with I Am Not a Human Being II.
