Lil Wayne’s video for “A Milli” has a pretty straightforward concept: Watch as hip-hop’s newest superstar walks to the set of his next video (which, um, looks to be set in the same hotel as Fatboy Slim’s “Weapon Of Choice”), rapping all the way, even during bathroom breaks. The “Don’t Tread On Me” hat is a nice touch, too. But did you know that Ne-Yo also released a clip for his version of the track? And it has Busta Rhymes in it and everything.
My affection for this particular remix is well known, but I’d be shirking my duties if I didn’t point out that in whoever posted this clip is trying to claim that Ne-Yo’s “A Milli” was at some point the third-most-downloaded track on iTunes. Let’s all just be happy that “Closer” is finally, deservedly breaking through to the top 40, OK?
