Lil Wayne's long-awaited "6 Foot 7 Foot" video will premiere this Thursday on MTV at 7:54 p.m. ET.
The clip is for the lead single from Wayne's forthcoming Tha Carter IV, his first collection of music since being released from prison last year.
Hype Williams directed the video, and Lil Wayne's latest protégé, Cory Gunz, appears in the clip.
Weezy told MTV News that he was strategic in placing Gunz on the Bangladesh-produced song, his first solo track since guesting on Birdman's "Fire Flame" and delivering a few remix verses, such as his retooling of Bruno Mars' "Grenade."
"You know, I put Nicki on the right songs, I put Drake on the right songs; I picked the right song," Wayne explained to MTV News. "It makes people pay attention ... because I know that people were waiting to see what I'll say on my first record, my first Lil Wayne record [since getting out of prison]. 'Cause, of course, I've done a bunch of features, and I'm quite sure whoever I did a feature for [before], as soon as I came home, they put it out, 'cause it got Wayne on here. 'He just came home, let's put it out.' So, I knew people were going to look at my first record like, 'I want to know what he's talking about on his first record.' And, I gave you the jewel at the end.
"It's like I'm forcing it on you: 'You got to hear this,' " he added. "It made everybody who didn't know Cory Gunz [say], 'Who is that?' "
