STREETRUNNER: I been making beats since 1998. I started out a DJ until I got a EMU sp1200 and then that pretty much ended my DJ career. I rocked on the sp1200 for about a year and then graduated to a akai mpc 2000xl. I landed my first major placement in 2003 with Fat Joe’s Terror Sqaud billboard charting single “Take Me Home”. I later went onto sign with Terror Squad for a year and continued to grind it out and get placements. I have placed tracks on artist albums such as Fat Joe, Juelz Santana, Lil Wayne, Ludacris, LL Cool J, Slaughter House, Birdman, Fabolous and many more.

Lil Wayne – Runnin’ (Feat Shanell) [Official Music Video]

Here is the second Rebirth music video to premiere during MTV’s Lil Tunechi Weekend! This time we have Lil Wayne‘s “Runnin’” record featuring Young Money’s Shanell, and Birdman making a cameo. You can read what SnL said about the music video below, and don’t forget to tell us your thoughts about this video in the comments section below.

“Well, it was a long day, and a lot of the videos we did that day were green screen,” Shanell told us during a trip to the Manolo Blahnik store in New York City on Thursday. “The song is talking about running and asking when will whatever it is that you’re going through that’s not a positive thing end. So ‘Runnin’ ‘ is about wanting whatever it is in your life to stop.”

Shanell explained that in the video, an earthquake and other natural disasters and even a war, are metaphors and not visuals she had in mind while she was writing her portion of the song. “That wasn’t in my head. It was whatever personal thing that I was going through that I wanted to end. That’s what I was expressing, but when you write a song you want everybody to kind of relate, so the audience can make it mean whatever it means to them.”
