Lil Wayne recently released his new "Im Single" music video (debuting during MTV2's "Sucker Free Countdown yesterday, April 18th). The new video shows Weezy performing a song from his "No Ceilings" mixtape and standing up to his main girl to sneak off with a side chick. Lil Wayne's "wife" (in the video) then gets so upset she takes a knife and stabs a cake that was meant for the rapper.
Directed by DJ Scoob Doo, the new music video was inspired by Martin Lawrence he says. "[Wayne's girl was mad that] he didn't make it home in time," Scoob said of the story line. "He stayed out all night. That's the idea I got with the song — it brought me back to watching the film 'A Thin Line Between Love and Hate.' Me growing up watching Martin [Lawrence], it was epic, it was a funny movie. I loved the cinematography in it. [Writing the script for the video], that was me being a fan of that movie and good music and putting it together."
"Even though he is incarcerated, he's still making music, he's still out there, he's still got music for his fans — he's putting it out there and I like it," Deanna Brown said. "I think this is something different," she added. "Even with other incarcerated rappers, everybody's like, 'Wait till they get out, wait till they get out.' And they can't wait for that release. This is almost tiding his fans over until he gets out. It makes you even more hungry, like, 'Ahh, if he's doing this while he's incarcerated, I can't wait to see what happens when he gets out.' "
