This video is probably the closest approximation to being Weezy ever put to film—trippy black-light googly eyes, gleaming neck tats, vampiric glowing teeth. It's an escapist's realism—see: fingerprints and brainscans amidst the drank-inspired tricks—and makes us feel his absence even more. This track's from his forthcoming EP due September 27. Lil Wayne is expected to be released from prison November 4.
