On Friday (July 31) Lil Wayne partnered collectively with his young money comrades Gudda Gudda and Jay Jones for the latest video, “Thug Life”.
Filmed at Wayne’s Skate Park, VG is in pure form, delivering high-octane raps at a frantic pace. “I want pictures of my baby on a $ 100 bill / My lazy little hesitation teaches my nuts how to shrug,” she quipped. With his Styrofoam cup in hand, he later accelerates his flow to the hypnotic beat, before Jay Jones enters with a punchy poem of his own. Shortly afterwards, the beat switches up and Gudda Gudda and Wayne trade off ominous sounds more often.
Two weeks ago, Wayne wrapped up his first season of Young Money Radio with an interview with Birdman. The two talked about sequencing their 2006 collaborative album Like father like son. Birdman told Wayne during their chat, “I want this to be my farewell thing.” His first foray came with commercial success and hit films like “Stuntin ‘Like My Daddy” and “Leather So Soft”.
After the conclusion of Wayne’s Young Money radio show – which previously held interviews with Drake, 50 Cent, Migos, Nicki Minaj and more – Weezy saluted his fans for tuning in.
“Thank you from the bottom of my heart for making the first season of this biggest debut of any podcast or radio show EVER,” wrote a grateful Wayne on Instagram.
