Just before December hit, Lil Wayne unveiled the third installment of his highly rated No Ceilings series, which is hosted by DJ Khaled and sees additional appearances from Young Thug, Gudda Gudda, HoodyBaby, Wayne’s children, and more. Over the weekend, the New Orleans legend liberated a new visual from the project for “Something Different,” a freestyle over Drake’s hit single “Laugh Now Cry Later” that sees Weezy rapping about the ups and downs of a relationship:
“Sometimes I laugh so hard that I cry, ‘cause you just a joke now, that’s brazy, I took a nap and you took your things, and I heard the doorknob, that’s brazy/
I told you don’t trip, got your number blocked, and I done went ghost town, that’s brazy, where all the bitches is at that say, that they don’t be doing all this and all that?/”
The visual is like an episode of “MTV Cribs,” with Lil Wayne performing the track while taking the viewer through a massive residence – much in the same way that Young Money cohort Drake did for his “Toosie Slide” clip. Wayne also makes sure to carry around a bottle of Bumbu rum, a spirit that he’s been promoting for some time.
Another track from No Ceilings 3 that’s been making headlines is the Drake-assisted “BB King Freestyle,” not only for the top-tier lyricism, but also because the late B.B. King’s estate responded to the song’s title. Said estate chairman Vassal Benford to Variety:
“When I heard ‘B.B. King Freestyle,’ I was shocked, as this is exactly what we wanted… We are in talks to do a new hip-hop album with our team and Universal Music Group, to usher in the new millennium with B.B. King and top A-list hip-hop artists.”
