Tyga pays homage to Lil Wayne in the video for “Lightskin Lil Wayne” off his latest album Legendary. The video starts with “A Tribute to the GOAT” before Tyga recreates Weezy’s “A Milli” video. A shirtless Tyga emerges from his tour bus before mimicking scenes from the 2008 clip, which was shot in the same downtown L.A. location.
Directed by himself and Arrad, the new visual finds him paying tribute to Weezy F., who he calls the greatest of all time. “Soaking bitches with the champagne, I’m the new lightskin Lil Wayne,” he raps on the hook. “I gotta touch it if them titties fake, I don’t do this shit to entertain.”
Lil Wayne himself appears on “On Me” off Tyga’s gold-certified album Legendary. Tyga, who was previously signed to YMCMB, also paid homage to Weezy’s 2005 album Tha Carter II with his Legendary album cover.
