“I’m starting with the man in the mirror,” Lil Wayne says in his new ‘Mirror’ video with Bruno Mars. “MJ taught me that.”
The video opens with close ups of a shirtless, venting Weezy, but focuses mainly on his numerous tattoos and symbolic red bandanna. Eventually the shot pans out and you see ladders, red and black paint and simple lighting. The juxtaposition of Wayne’s body art with the painting motif is an effective one.
