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.
