New from EMPIRE: Tyga “Light Skin Lil Wayne”

Lil Wayne is arguably one of the most influential rappers of all time, and Tyga pays homage in new video for “Lightskin Lil Wayne,” which arrived last month.

Co-directed by Tyga and Arrad, the visual shows T-Raww channeling his inner Weezy through a series of the New Orleans star’s biggest video moments to date. It begins with Tyga replicating 2008’s “A Milli” (complete with excessive tattoos and a signature syrofoam cup), then journeys through “Go DJ,” “Fireman” and “Lollipop.”

The GOAT approves:

Tyga’s mannerisms and dance moves are incredibly spot-on, which comes as no surprise since Lil Wayne served as both his mentor and former Young Money label boss. The video then segues into “Too Many,” a Mustard-produced highlight from Tyga’s Legendary album, with the artist boasting about his onslaught of women and cash.
