Lil’ Wayne heads to the Psych Ward in the upcoming video “Krazy.” Directed by Colin Tilley, MTV takes us on set of Weezy’s new visual in support of Tha Carter V. “I’m not talking about being crazy in the song, I’m just talking about being me, and a lot of people view that as crazy so we just wanted to capture that and have fun with it,” says the face of Young Money, while laughing at himself.

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 explains. “It’s more of the psychological trip that Lil Wayne’s going through in this place.”

ne-yo-jeezy

The music video for Ne-Yo and Jeezy’s latest collaboration “Money Can’t Buy” premiered on BET’s 106 & Park on Monday. Until the clip makes its debut online, fans can go on set of the Chris Robinson-directed visual, which was filmed recently in Los Angeles. “We want those moments that money can’t buy,” Ne-Yo explains of the video’s theme. “So it’s not about going to the most expensive place or most glamorous place whatever the case might be. It’s just about moving around with somebody, enjoying that person’s company and just having a good time. It’s the moments and people, everything else….trivial.”

The song serves as the lead single off Ne-Yo’s sixth solo album Non Fiction, due this fall via Motown Records/Capitol.
