Lil Wayne Brings His Autotuner To SNL

Weezy added another stat to his career year this weekend as musical guest for the season premiere of Saturday Night Live. Unfortunately he didn’t do much to bring excitement to an episode that really could have used it, Palin/Clinton bit aside. (I’m not sure how you spend a summer working on new material only to rewrite old sketches and not once lampoon the presidential candidates after talking it up so much, but that is among the many reasons I’m not a writer for Saturday Night Live. Also, that stereotype-spitting waiter sketch — ugh.) Dwayne and his autotuner did the singles, “Lollipop” and “Got Money (Remix),” the most entertaining part of which was a Mack Maine verse and once again watching Weezy’s jeans balance beneath his ass and somehow never fall down. If you missed the show, Videogum’s harvested just the funny parts (there were a few), and here are videos of Mr. Carter’s two songs and magic jeans:
