Hip Hop superstar Lil Wayne has returned from prison with his popularity and mass appeal maintained. In addition to rocking the sports community last week with the now Super Bowl champion Green Bay Packers anthem “Green & Yellow” , the Cash Money Records emcee continues to score radio success and iTunes single sales with his “6 Foot 7 Foot” (f/k/a “6’7”) single, featuring Young Money’s Cory Gunz.
On Thursday February 10 at 8pm EST, Lil Wayne will conduct his first live televised music interview with MTV’s Sway Calloway. Called MTV First: Lil Wayne, the show will feature the acclaimed radio/television host asking Wayne about his prison and post-prison experiences, and upcoming album, Tha Carter IV. Fans of the multi-platinum rapper are about to submit questions for Sway to ask, by submitting them to MTV News’ Twitter (@MTVNews) with the hash-tag of #AskWeezy.
Following Sway’s 30-minute interview with Wayne, and 20 minutes of fan-submitted questions, the music network will premiere the Hype Williams-directed video for “6 Foot, Seven Foot.”
UPDATE: Lil Wayne’s new video for hit single 6 Foot 7 Foot was supposed to premiere tonight on MTV at 8pm EST. That is no longer the case according to MTV. The finishing touches are still being put on Tha Carter IV single. Below is some behind the scenes footage courtesy of MTV.
UPDATE #2: Before MTV could get their “6 Foot, 7 Foot” premiere tonight at 7:54pm EST, the Inception inspired video has leaked to the Internet. The Hype Williams-directed video was supposed to air nearly a month ago but was not yet ready.
