Tyga Proclaims Self “Lightskin Lil Wayne”


Tyga has set the Internet on fire after proclaiming himself the “Lightskin Lil Wayne” in his new video.

The video is a montage of the rapper recreating some of Weezy’s most iconic videos, including “A Milli.” He even hit some of the same locations to recreate the shots, including the same downtown L.A. location where Wayne shot the aforementioned classic. The video is a tribute to Wayne, someone he has long viewed as a mentor. He included clips from “Hustler Musik,” “Lillipop,” “Go DJ,” and “Fireman.”

Even the cover art paid tribute to Tunechi.

The track comes off his latest album Legendary, and the new video is leaving many Wayne fans conflicted.

The line that has everyone fired up: “I don’t do this shit to entertain / Soaking bitches with the champagne / I’m the new lightskin Lil Wayne,” Tyga rapped. Lil Wayne himself appeared on Tyga’s album on the track “On Me.”
