A rough cut of Lil Wayne's brand new single has been made on-line, featuring the recently deceased rapper Static Major.
The highly anticipated music video from Lil Wayne's upcoming album, "Tha Carter III" has been released. "Lollipop", which music video has been previewed earlier this week, is the first single from the album which is due this April.
The video that has been circulating on-line is the rough cut. Universal Music has been keen on pulling the videos for copyright claim. The official premiere date is supposed to be later today (March 12) on BET Access Granted. According to Vibe.com, the BET version is supposed to contain featured artist Static Major saying "Ya'll ain't hear this one yet, this is fresh off the press. Stay tuned, we're going to give it to ya'll real shortly."
An ironic situation occurred after the filming of this video that took place in Las Vegas. Major died of unknown cause three weeks after the shooting and he did not get the chance to see the final result of the video. Major was a member of Hip-Hop group Playa who allegedly was due to release a solo album later this year.
