Lil Wayne to Debut ’6 Foot 7 Foot’ Video on Thursday

Two-and-a-half months after his epic ‘6 Foot 7 Foot‘ single dropped, Lil Wayne is finally debuting his music video for the Bangladesh-produced banger on Thursday (March 3) at 7:54 PM EST on MTV.

The song is Wayne’s first single since his release from Rikers Island prison in November, and the typically hyper-productive rapper has been keeping a uncharacteristically low profile since, only popping up on a handful of remixes and leaking a mixtape verse here and there.

Though “6 Foot 7 Foot” leaked back in early December, the Hype Williams-directed visual took months to produce, and though it was finally scheduled for a February 10th debut, the video was abruptly yanked on the day of its premiere so that Hype could put the finishing touches on it.

Coming off his controversial epilepsy-inducing clip for Kanye West’s ‘All of the Lights,’ Hype’s new video was reportedly shot in Miami, and will feature Weezy’s young gunner Cory Gunz, the latest addition to his Young Money crew.

“You know, I put Nicki on the right songs, I put Drake on the right songs; I picked the right song,” Wayne said of his young protege’s inclusion on the track. “It makes people pay attention…I’ve done a bunch of features, and I’m quite sure whoever I did a feature for [before], as soon as I came home, they put it out, ’cause it got Wayne on here. ‘He just came home, let’s put it out.’ So, I knew people were going to look at my first record like, ‘I want to know what he’s talking about on his first record.’ And, I gave you the jewel at the end. It’s like I’m forcing it on you: ‘You got to hear this.’ It made everybody who didn’t know Cory Gunz [say], ‘Who is that?’”

’6 foot 7 Foot’ is the lead single from Wayne’s highly-anticipated ‘Tha Carter IV’ album, his first LP since his release from prison for a 2006 gun charge.
