I don’t even know where to start with this video. It’s all over the place, beginning with an Inception reference as Lil Wayne is forced awake by being dunked into a tub filled with water. From the start, you’re led to believe that this clip, Weezy’s “6’7′” visual, will be a huge brain-racking adventure — as Christopher Nolan’s blockbuster adventure was. Then it gets literal, very fast. When he raps about how he’s lost his mind, he’s actually jumping after it. And when he spits, “Mind’s so sharp I’ll f— around and cut my head off,” rest assured the his skull’s going to hit the floor.
Watch the video after the jump.
If not for the unintelligible Inception knockoffs, this clip would be quite amazing. There are more than a few potentially iconic shots from director Hype Williams. But its story, if one even exists, is lost on me. Is it all a dream? Is this wild life we see Wayne living real? Your guess is as good as mine. Hopefully you’ll dig it more than I did.
Am I sleeping on this “6’7′” video? Watch it and let me know.
