Nicki Minaj Dresses as Lil Wayne in Birdman’s ‘Y.U. Mad’ Video
Nicki Minaj recently flew down to Miami to appear in Cash Money boss Birdman‘s video for ‘Y.U. Mad,’ which also features Lil Wayne, and is the lead single from Birdman’s forthcoming fifth album, ‘Bigga Than Life,’ which drops on Nov. 21.
Rocking a Lil Wayne costume, replete with long blonde dreads, a wifebeater, camo pants and an iced-out chain and watch, the Young Money diva let Birdman and Weezy do all the talking regarding the Gil Green-helmed visual, which was shot on Friday (Oct. 14). The ‘Pink Friday’ creator was content with merely standing by, arms crossed and attempted to keep a straight face, despite Wayne’s antics.
“Nicki gave me that song,” Baby explained. “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. Working with Nicki is just special anyway, and it was something she gave me, and I felt good about it, so we rocked with it.”
While Baby praised his artist for her loyalty, Lil Wayne took a far less serious approach as he playfully described the “female Weezy’s” intentions.”
“Honestly though, I don’t think no one is actually mad. It’s just a figure of speech,” Weezy deadpanned. “I think Nick just sounded good saying ‘mad’ at that point in the song. I don’t think it would’ve been cooler if she said, ‘That’s why you glad.’ I think that’s why she went with ‘mad,’ we have to ask her next time I see her … we don’t want you guys to be mad. That’s what it is.”
