No one was actually mad on the set of the video for ‘Y.U. Mad‘ — in fact, Birdman, Lil Wayne and Nicki Minaj were giggling during a behind-the-scenes interview about the song.
“I liked it from the start,” Birdman said. “Working with Nicki is special, and it’s something she gave me, so we rocked with it.”
As for the meaning behind the song? Weezy has his own theory:
“Honestly though, I don’t think no one [sic] is actually mad, it’s just a figure of speech,” Wayne explained to MTV News. “I think Nick just sounded good saying ‘mad’ at that point in the song,” he continued. “I don’t think it would’ve been cooler if she said, ‘That’s why you glad.’ I’ll have to ask her next time I see her,” Weezy deadpanned.
While it appears that Minaj is right alongside Lil Wayne, she’s not actually on set — her “Female Weezy” persona is, clad in sagging skater pants, a white tank, and long blonde dreadlocks. Minaj doesn’t speak in the video, but she does chuckle at Lil Wayne’s explanation about the track.
At the end of the day, the trio just wants to make listeners smile, Weezy says. “We don’t want you guys mad!”
Watch Lil Wayne, Birdman, and Nicki Minaj Behind the Scenes of ‘Y.U. Mad’
We told you previously that Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter IV album scored the second biggest sales debut of the year on the BILLBOARD charts recently, but some folks are accusing Birdman of "buying" most of those albums. Get the deets inside and find out what Birdman said in response….
Lil’ Wayne’s Tha Carter IV album hit #1 on the charts this week with 964K sold, and while most artists would be celebrating, Weezy and Birdman are on the defense. Especially since the two of the biggest rappers in the world–Jay-Z & Kanye–only sold about half that their first week on their collabo album Watch The Throne.
Birdman stopped by Sway Calloway’s Shade 45 "Sway in the Morning" radio show to talk about the disc’s success and to defend himself, after he was accused of "buying" up most of those albums and inflating sales. He told Sway,
"People doin’ different numbers (referring to others saying the sales were inflated)….But this comes from Billboard. To me, that’s a million; 964, we right there, so it’s cool. We’ll just keep grinding, I guess."
And when asked if Cash Money "bought" Weezy sales, he said,
"Nah, man, that really don’t make no sense. Why would we do that? I press and distribute ‘em. Ain’t no need for me to buy ‘em. That’s hustling backwards; we ain’t in it for that. I ain’t ever been a part of that type of scheme to be buyin’ records. We don’t do that, homey.
We be working too hard to be — that don’t go with what we do. We truly what we do. We’re real about what we do, we work hard every day at it, and we work for the people. That’s what we do music for: for people. And we appreciate the love they give us back. But no such thing as me buying no CDs. I wouldn’t even play it like that."
And there you have it. But do you believe him?
