Drake and Lil Wayne start fires in their 'Miss Me' video: Watch it here

Lil Wayne has a few months left on Rikers Island, but plans are already in the works for a concert to celebrate when he gets out this fall. That’s per his Young Money pal Drake, who told viewers of his webcast last night to look forward to a “Welcome Home Weezy” show on Nov. 5, the day after Wayne’s expected release. Drake also just debuted a video for his song “Miss Me,” and through the magic of video editing, the incarcerated Wayne was able to co-star.

The Anthony Mandler-directed “Miss Me” clip opens with a disorienting collage of imagery over a moody ambient soundtrack. Most of those images recur once the proper song begins. Fireworks explode and a lady in lingerie gyrates as Drake raps, flashing goofy grins and grouchy scowls all the while. At one point, Drake hurls a Molotov cocktail at a brick wall. When it explodes, Lil Wayne is released in the form of a spectral hologram. This eerie Wayne genie then kicks a guest verse, with Drake mouthing along to his lyrics.

Check out the clip after the jump (some NSFW language). Like it? Do you miss Wayne terribly, or are clips like this tiding you over?

    Drake is wack, dude can’t sing or rap. He is below average in my opinion. As a person, he seems cool. But this is about talent. :)
