Lil Wayne - Lil Wayne Debuts Fear And Loathing Tribute 'No Worries' Video
Lil Wayne debuted the video for 'No Worries' this week, featuring a Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas style narrative that sees Weezy and his producer pal Detail taking a surreal trip through Sin City, mirroring the famous journey taken by Raoul Duke and Dr Gonzo.
However, whereas Hunter S Thompson's depicted the darkest depths of the American Dream, Lil Wayne just has plenty of fun. Which is fine. "That was my main thing," Wayne told MTV News following the premiere on MTV First, "I told all my friends, I told everybody 'We don't have no script, this video [we] don't have a time to be there, we're just going to shoot and have fun,' and that's what we did." The rapper says he hopes fans of Thompson's classic gonzo novel will appreciate his tribute (we're not sure Terry Gilliam will), saying, "Well, we did [the] 'Lollipop' [video] in Vegas, and we did that for the simple reason where I think at that time I had never shot a video in Vegas.We did this video in Vegas because the treatment played off the movie 'Fear and Loathing in Las Vegas.' We didn't really follow any script or anything; I just saw the movie, really enjoyed the movie, and I told [director] Colin [Tilley] I was interested in the movie and he wrote a spoof to it, and we shot it."
