Lil Wayne's "Krazy" Video Inspired By "One Flew Over The Cuckoo's Nest," Director Colin Tilley Says

Lil Wayne's "Krazy" video is a "psychological trip" for Lil Wayne, Tilley says.

Lil Wayne recently shot the music video for “Krazy” a track set to appear on the rapper’s Tha Carter V. Colin Tilley, the video’s director, previously directed the music video for Lil Wayne’s “No Worries.”

A behind the scenes video from MTV News shows Lil Wayne being restrained in a straightjacket, and sitting in an electric chair, but that comes with the video's inspiration, Tilley says. 

“We talked about putting Lil Wayne in a psych ward and I definitely took some inspiration from One Flew Over the Cuckoo’s Nest, just as far as the look and feel for it,” Tilley said to MTV news. “It’s more of the psychological trip that Lil Wayne’s going through in this place.”

One Flew Over A Cuckoo's Nest is a 1975 film set in a mental institution. 

Lil Wayne is set to embark on the Drake Vs. Lil Wayne tour beginning in August.

“The plan is just, cause thank god we’ve been so successful, just going back and forth with our hits and just getting the crowd to go crazy and then just finally hitting the stage together and going crazy,” Lil Wayne has said. “I think it’s something like it’s a battle type thing.” When asked who will win the battle, Wayne responded,”Oh you know give the good guy the edge.”

Drake is also “on a few other joints” besides “Believe Me” on Tha Carter V, according to Lil Wayne.

Lil Wayne also says Nicki Minaj will be expected on the album, and he will be expected on Minaj’s The Pink Print
