As we sit back and look at the natural disasters affecting our country, and as we come up on to the 10th anniversary of Sept. 11, there seem to be bad things all around us. Sometimes, you need a little something to take your mind off of the things that give negative effects. Sometimes, that remedy can be music -- you know,  turning on your favorite station (hint, hint?) or sliding on a pair of headphones at the gym. One such artist that has been in people's ears for over the past 15 years if Lil Wayne, and you've heard me talking about his new video for "How To Love, " and I have gained a new found respect for him with this one right here.

 

Lil Wayne has really touched on something that usually gets a closed eye or deaf ear. The video is not your stereotypical video of girls half-naked, or weed being smoked or even big diamonds or ropes. Wayne kept the video really basic, but still complex on so many levels. The single is currently in the top 5 on the Urban and Top 40, and I really wouldn't be surprised if it didn't crossover to adult radio as well. If you love the single, and are a follower of Lil Wayne, then you need to be in your local store and make sure to get a copy of "The Carter 4" hitting stores this Monday!
