Music Videos, Young Money Ent

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

Sat, May 29, 2010 by Daniel Mousdell

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.”

  • lovalle

    the video could’ve been better since the songs so good, but i still liked it.

    of course birdman had to be in it :roll:

  • Luna K

    The “Runnin’ ” video is one of my favorite clips of Wayne thus far.. seriously… maybe cuz I can relate to it … but still, on the close-ups, weezy’s expression looks so innocent and so pure… u don’t see him like that that often… amazing…

    ;)

  • Adrenaline

    Dope song, i luv weezy’s first verse, but shanell ruined it.
    The hook feels like ear-cancer (if that exists)
    and she looks like a freak with that weird chain in her face :(
    But the video is dope, it’s just boring that they do a lot of videos with bluescreen…

  • Chazz

    humm
    what happened to music vids that tell a story,just watching the singers perform lip synching in front of some green screen background isnt much satisfying
    anyway love the song and its always good to see lil wayne so

    FREE WEEZY !

  • wyatt

    i dont like the green screen crap but i understand because weezy wanted to push out videos before he left. atleast he picked some good songs tho to make videos for

  • weezyfjizy

    this video sucked dick! he made like 10 videos before he left and 2/3 of them are trash. and fuck birdman all he does is stand in the back rubbing his hands like its winter. SOOO WOOOp!!!!

  • http://www.myspace.com/zsoltpalffy Zsolt

    In my opinion this is a great song.Better than Da Da Da but as a video the Da Da Da video is better.Shanell looks good but she should leave that piercing and the fake nails.

  • sashaj

    you could really tell how they were trying to rush the videos…Da Da Da was cool but this looked really amateur-ish..i didnt like the video so much. at least we got to see wayne though,
