Cash Money Records artist Lil Wayne is set to premiere his "God Bless Amerika" music video very soon, once controversial even before it got put together due to the supposedly unintentional trampling of the American flag by the rap superstar during the video shoot last month. The New Orleans rapper entices the big unveiling by sharing a sneak peek via a teaser clip.
The short teaser from the Eif Rivera-directed music video features some familiar elements from the leaked one-minute raw footage from the video shoot. The "Rich as F*ck" artist raps in front of a microphone stand with a large American flag as his backdrop, wearing a Trukfit cap cut-off shirt that reads "Jesus saves, I spend," branded by critics as offensive.
Weezy shares the first few lines of his new track off the album "I Am Not a Human Being II", "My mind's filled with mine fields/ The ashes fall, the wine spills/ The world stops, drops and rolls..." As fans who have seen the flag stomping clip would know, a crowd of his fellow New Orleans locals are standing behind the big stars and stripes banner behind him, as they film the footage in the streets of Hollygrove.
Lil Wayne, a repeating controversy magnet who manages to recover again and again, seems to have convinced his critics about unintentionally stepping on the flag. He kicked off his "America's Most Wanted" tour to a sold-out crowd in Birmingham, Alabama on Tuesday, July 9 and followed it with the second concert stop in Nashville's Bridgestone Arena.
