Nicki Minaj Channels Lil Wayne in Birdman's 'Y.U. Mad' Video: Watch
Last week, YouTube sensation Sophia Grace Brownlee, 8 yrs. old, channeled her inner Nicki Minaj in a surprising rendition of the raptress' own Hot 100 top 5 hit "Super Bass."
This week, it was Minaj's turn. In Birdman's "Y.U. Mad" Video the "Super Bass" raptress became the "Female Weezy," embodying Lil Wayne's characteristic mannerisms and donning his signature diamond studded-chains, sneakers, camouflage pants, and impossibly long dreads.
"Nicki gave me that song. She called me one day like, 'Stunna, I got a record for you I think you would like. I jumped on it and put my son on it. I liked it from the start," Birdman told MTV News. "Working with Nicki is just special anyway and I felts good about it, so we rocked with it."
After filming, Minaj continued the convincing act while conducting an interview in a similar style of Wayne's own recent 30-minute PSA. Minaj hilariously ends the interview with an aggressively dismissive, "Kill Yo Self," when thanked for the interview.
