When you’ve got a song called “Krazy,” setting the video for that song inside a mental hospital is kind of the least crazy thing you can do, at least short of making an American Psycho parody. But that’s what Lil Wayne and director Colin Tilley did for their “Krazy” video. The song is one of the better recent Wayne efforts, and even though the video is all full of cliches — padded cells, straightjackets, multiple Waynes to indicate schizophrenia, a supporting cast of dead-eyed mental patients — Wayne sells the whole concept through sheer lunatic charisma. It’s tough to imagine any A-list rapper making a more believable lunatic than this guy. Watch the video at MTV.
Wayne’s forthcoming album Tha Carter V still doesn’t have a release date, which is weird, since it’s not like Wayne doesn’t sell records.
