UPDATE: Lil Wayne debuts his Bruno Mars-assisted ‘Mirror’ video in full here.

Jailbird Lil Wayne has tapped fedora-wearing crooner Bruno Mars to join him on video for his ‘Tha Carter IV’ track ‘Mirror.’ The video is set for release in the coming weeks but in the meantime, you can preview Weezy’s newfound love for abstract painting in the snippet below.

The short clip features Wayne, perched in front of a massive canvas. With a combination of acrylics and spray paint, the MC churns out a red-and-black master print in the same vein as Jackson Pollock. Splotches and dots cover Lil Wayne’s shirtless chest while Bruno admires his friend’s newest work.

‘Mirror’ is quite possibly a metaphor for Lil Wayne’s inner resentments — His shame in covering up who he truly is inside. “I see you’re not satisfied/And I don’t see nobody else/I see myself I’m lookin’ at the/Mirror on the wall,” he raps with a lyrical rasp. With all this pain being put into paint, perhaps Weezy’s ready to take up a whole new artistic medium?

After doing a “rock ‘n’ roll” record, it wouldn’t be too surprising. Check out the preview of ‘Mirror’ below.
