After several delays, the video for Lil Wayne’s biggest post-prison hit, “6 Foot 7 Foot,” aka “‘A Milli'” on steroids,” is here. And it’s actually here kind of prematurely as it was set to debut tonight on MTV. But you’re seeing it here first courtesy of the folks at OnSMASH, who clearly got their hands on the video a bit early. The visuals were directed by Hype Williams, who thankfully did not employ the seizure-inducing tactics seen in Kanye West’s “All of the Lights.” Instead, “6 Foot 7 Foot” resembles an updated, more colorful version of Jay-Z’s “On to the Next One,” with the devilish makeup, slowed-down visual metaphors, and all. Those gripes aside, it’s still fun to watch.
Weezy’s Tha Carter IV is due out sometime this year.
