AceShowbiz - Tyga continues to promote his latest album "Legendary" by releasing the music video for the second track off the record "Lightskin Lil Wayne". Making its way out on Monday, June 8, the visuals sees the 29-year-old rapper reliving some of the biggest moments in Weezy's music video catalog, meticulously recreating set-ups to appear identical.
Deeming the music video "a tribute to the goat," Tyga is seen in the beginning of the clip walking out of the bus shirtless as he starts rapping to the camera. Fans of Weezy may definitely recognize this scene as it looks strikingly identical to the opening scene of the Young Money founder's "A Milli" music video. There is also a scene of Tyga recreating one of the most biggest moments in "Fireman" music video, where Weezy was rapping in the middle of an open field while a fire raged around him.
Another music video that Tyga reenacts in "Lightskin Lil Wayne" visuals is "Lollipop", with the "Hookah" rapper reclining around a parade of women inside a limo. "Soaking b****es with the champagne/ I'm the new lightskin Lil Wayne/ I gotta touch it if them titties fake," he raps. "I don't do this s**t to entertain."
Many are loving how Tyga pays tribute to Weezy with the music video. Even Weezy himself is mesmerized by the father of one's tribute as saying on Instagram, "Love!!!! That's too dope bro. I'm at a lost for words after watching & listening to that! It feels gratifying to be honored in such a way! It feels uber better when it's from yo broski!!" Tyga answers in the comment section, "You change my life bro."
"Lightskin Lil Wayne" is one of the tracks on Tyga's seventh studio album "Legendary", which was released on June 7 to generally positive reviews. The effort debuted at No. 17 on Billboard 200 and was certified gold by the RIAA.
