Tyga pays homage to his mentor Lil Wayne in the music video for “Lightskin Lil Wayne” off his latest album “Legendary”.
The video starts with “A Tribute to the GOAT” before Tyga recreates Lil Wayne’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.
Additionally, he recreates scenes from other iconic Weezy videos including “Fireman,” “Go DJ,” “Lollipop,” and “Hustler Musik / Money On My Mind.”
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.
