Lil Wayne's 'No Worries' Video To Premiere On MTV!
Watch a preview clip of Weezy's Las Vegas-based promo here...
Lil Wayne channels his inner Raoul Duke in a brand-new teaser clip for his No Worries video, with the full clip set to premiere tonight at 12.45 a.m. on MTV.co.uk.
Yes, No Worries sees Weezy and his producer pal Detail pay tribute to Hunter S. Thompson's iconic counter-culture work Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas (or, more specifically, Terry Gilliam's loving 1998 film adaptation).
Tunechi even dons Duke's bucket hat and shades, going the extra mile by also clenching a cigarette holder between his teeth. Meanwhile, Detail takes on the role of Duke's attorney, Dr. Gonzo, mostly by being sorta corpulent.
The two take an acid-powered trek through a Vegas casino, marvelling at (or, alternately, shrinking in terror from) the rapidly swirling patterns on the carpet beneath their feet.
The pair also make a stop at a strip club — as is practically required by law in Sin City — and Wayne also dances in front of a multicoloured background.
The No Worries video is directed by Colin Tilley, and was shot last month at locations all throughout Las Vegas.
You can catch the whole long, strange trip when Lil Wayne's No Worries video premieres in full tonight at 12.45 a.m. on MTV.co.uk, as part of MTV First: Lil Wayne.
