Watch Lil Wayne’s 29-Minute Reaction to Steve Jobs’ Death
A lot of popular rap songs are about status and money, but Lil Wayne’s taking it a little far. As Complex points out, the rapper released a rambling, 29-minute reaction to the death of Steve Jobs because he was afraid his legacy wouldn’t be remembered correctly.
“I was like, man, what if today I skate off my roof and just end it all?” he said at the beginning of the video.
He spends the length of the video giving a near-MTV Cribs-style tour of his house, discussing subjects like his Bugatti, playing guitar, skateboarding, the prison life and new releases from Tyga, Shanell, Drake and Lil Twist. He also gives his Discover card a shout-out at the end.
“I want motherfuckers to really remember me for the innovator I am,” Lil Wayne said in the video. “And I was thinking how saturated things get these days and how easy it is to forget the greatness of something or someone. And today I plan to take 10 minutes or 15 minutes out of your day and my day to elaborate on the subject.”
You can watch Lil Wayne discuss his greatness for a half an hour below.
