Lil Wayne And Bruno Mars Paint A Somber Picture In “Mirror” Video

Jan 31st, 2012 // 4 Comments

Taking a cue from Michael Jackson, Lil Wayne reflects on his life and the person he has become by looking at the man in the mirror in his aptly-titled Tha Carter IV cut “Mirror”. The Bruno Mars-featuring clip finds Weezy throwing paint around a sparsely-furnished studio, and only at the end do we see the self-portrait the Cash Money MC has created. Watch the work of art below.

Overall, “Mirror” serves as a nice companion piece to “How To Love”; they’re two tracks that have successfully displayed the softer, more introspective side of Lil Wayne to the music-consuming public.

What do you think of Weezy’s latest visual?

  1. Lil’ Wayne new Video – Mirror (Art or Blasphemy?) Read the Article from the Book, “Deadest Rapper Alive: The Rise of Lil’ Wayne and the Fall of Urban Youth” that shows what has happened to similar artists. http://wp.me/P1TK3q-sE

    I have written in the book, “Deadest Rapper Alive: The Rise of Lil’ Wayne and the Fall of Urban Youth”, that there exists a certain danger when Rap Artists begin to cross the invisible line of spiritual blasphemy against or emulation to the Lord Jesus Christ. In 1996 Tupac Shakur released his infamous “Makaveli” album cover depicting himself as the Lord Jesus crucified on a cross. He would soon after be killed in a Las Vegas shoot-out. Mega-star Kanye West, similar to Tupac, actually posed as blood-soaked Jesus Christ, on the cover of Rolling Stone Magazine. The headline was titled, “The Passion of Kanye West.” Sadly ayear later, West’s mother would die suddenly as a result of cosmetic surgery complications. Rapper Big L released his infamous song, “Devil’s Son” in which he fantasizes about murdering Jesus. He later would be murdered (being shot 7 times in the head) at the rise of his career. Popular Rapper O.D.B. of the Wu Tang Clan was planning to change his stage name to ‘Big Baby Jesus’ before he suddenly died of a drug overdose in 2004. Popular Latino Rapper Big Pun recorded in his song “Super Lyrical”, “I’m battlin’ Jesus if he passes through my label I’m snatchin’ his halo…Just call me Baby Jesus cuz lady n*ggaz be praisin’ me.” The rapper would die of respiratory failure at the tender age of 28 years-old. And it was Notorious B.I.G. that penned some of the darkest lyrics in popular Hip Hop’s history. Before his death in 1997, he recorded a song titled, “All Men Are Dogs” in which he states, “Brooklyn freaky n*gga with the most stuff I’m Jesus pops, Mary just blame Joseph. You should see her drink the s*men. She s*ck a mean one. Leaving them three apostle’s scheming.” The rapper would meet a violent end when he was murdered on March 9th, 1997.

    I would not want to be in the Rapper’s shoes…or mirror.

    Correction, Tupac’s Makaveli album was released after his death. Before you post something online make sure that it is credible and factual.

  3. commonsense.

    yes but both his album cover and tracks along with tracklistings were finished before he died, hence how they released a full album, unless you are suggesting that the makaveli album was named that after he died? Yet that would be slightly disrespectful to Tupacs family and fans no?
    Please use common sense.

  4. So let me get this straight; Ye’ does a “blasphemous” mag cover and instead of killing him in vengeance, God kills his mother? Makes perfect sense. And I’ve yet to see this “God” mete out vengeance for Jay Z making “Lucifer”. Outta here with that bs.

    On topic, I love this song.
