Young Money Debuts Comic Book-Inspired 'Roger That' Video
Lil Wayne's jail sentence might've been postponed again today (March 2) due to a courthouse fire, but that didn't stop the rapper from firing off with the first of nearly 20 videos he's filmed recently. The Young Money collective's comic book-inspired "Roger That" video premiered on the net today.
Much like Eminem's "Without Me," the "Roger That" video uses a graphic novel motif which finds the Young Money crew adopting the art style of "Sin City" as well as Frank Miller's urban noir (e.g., Nicki Minaj's glittered corset.) Young Money member Tyga jumps between characters, which include a fighter pilot, a lounge singer, and, er, a guy wearing a gas mask.
While today he tweeted, "Yesterday i smiled, today i smirked, tomorrow i stop............................," Lil Wayne seems more than ecstatic as he jumps around for the grand finale.
The video takes a few weak stabs at a narrative, but it's really just the Young Money fam having fun, showing off their duds and celebrating being free and on top of the world.
