Lil Wayne “Uproar” Video: Watch Swizz Beatz and Shiggy Show Off Dance Moves
Lil Wayne delivers a new video in support of Tha Carter V. Today (Oct. 18), the New Orleans rap legend unloads a new visual for "Uproar," a Swizz Beatz-produced cut that takes inspiration from G-Dep's "Special Delivery" instrumental. Naturally, Swizzy appears in the video and so does Queens-based comedian, Shiggy.
In the video, Swizzy and Shiggy show off their dance moves as they go along with the fluttering instrumental. Throughout the visual, we're taken to the street, and it's there we can see folks pop-locking along to the track. Weezy himself also does a little dancing at different points of the new video.
Upon its release last month, "Uproar" immediately became a viral sensation, sparking a dance challenge within days. Taking part in the challenge, which saw social media users upload videos of themselves dancing to the track, was Shiggy, who obviously appears in Weezy's new video.
For Shiggy, this marks another big-time video cameo. His most notable one to date was his appearance in Drake's video for "In My Feelings." Here's to more wins for Shiggy.
Weezy F. is now about two weeks removed from winning the I Am Hip Hop trophy at the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards. The trophy, which is the BET Hip Hop Awards' version of a lifetime achievement award, was one fans got to see for themselves when the 2018 BET Hip Hop Awards aired this past Tuesday. During the acceptance speech, Weezy made sure he had time to thank his fans, friends and family—and Uncle Bob, the homicide detective who saved his life.
Lil Wayne's chart success makes it easy to see why he'd thank his fans. His most recent album, Tha Carter V, debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 albums chart after moving over 480,000 equivalent album units in its first week. Salute to Weezy.
