Lil Wayne teams up with long-time collaborator, director Colin Tiley for the music video to Tha Carter V single, “Krazy.”
The visual features different versions of Weezy in straight jackets, being dragged and questioned at an asylum.
The rapper told MTV News that he wanted to portray how others look at him when he’s just “being me.” “I’m not talking about being crazy in the song, I’m just talking about being me, and a lot of people view that as crazy so we just wanted to capture that and have fun with it.”
Tiley shared the inspiration behind the video concept: “We talked about putting Lil Wayne in a psych ward and I definitely took some inspiration from ‘One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest,’ just as far as the look and feel for it. It’s more of the psychological trip that Lil Wayne’s going through in this place.”
