Video: Lil Wayne Performs “6 Foot, 7 Foot” On MTV’s Unplugged With Cory Gunz

Wed, Jun 8, 2011 by

Above, you can watch Lil Wayne perform “6 Foot, 7 Foot” with Cory Gunz from his MTV Unplugged performance, which will air this Sunday (June 12) at 9PM EST on MTV. Shouts to Jake for the video, and if you are wondering why it is flipped, that is so YouTube won’t take it down.

After the jump, you can watch Weezy speak on why his MTV Unplugged performance is solo and why he covered 2Pac’s “Hail Mary” verse.

“If you ever go to a Lil Wayne show, you’ll see he, as in I, don’t bring nobody onstage unless they are Young Money,” Weezy told MTV News’ Sway Calloway after the taping of “MTV2 Presents: Lil Wayne Unplugged,” which will air on MTV2, MTV and MTV.com on Sunday.

“If they are not Young Money and they are just an artist that I’ve done a song with and they’re in the town that night and they ask, ‘Can I come out?’ Say, ‘Yeah,’ ” he said. “But if you go to a Lil Wayne show and you’re a real Lil Wayne fan, you’ll know: He’s up there from start to finish by his self.”

“Ain’t have nobody screamin’ over the mic with me. I just never been about that because I was always in a group with three other guys when I was comin’ up,” Tunechi said.

For all of the reasons he gives, in the end, Wayne is just a little bit selfish, and after releasing eight solo albums, nine official mixtapes and selling more than 10 million copies, who can blame him? “I also don’t bring a lot of people up there because, simple and plain, this is ‘MTV Unplugged,’ and this is Lil Wayne’s ‘MTV Unplugged,’ ” he said.

————————————————————————————

“I knew because this is my ‘Unplugged,’ I said, ‘I want to do some kind of tribute to one of those great artists,’ ” Wayne explained to us of why he chose to perform the fallen MC’s 1996 single “Hail Mary.” “It’s just something about ‘Pac and I,” he said after the show’s taping last month.

“I picked that second verse, ‘Penitentiaries is packed with promise makers,’ and I was like, ‘That whole verse is just perfect — they never realized the precious time that they wasting.’ “

  • Qadeem

    I’m so pissed and happy at the same time I pushed play. Damnit, it was too good though. It got me so hype for the rest of it, and in my opinion, 6 foot 7 foot sounds so much better when he performs it foreal.

  • xsquad423

  • MOP15321

    Hopefully Hail Mary will be on D4 and he will release D4 within 2 weeks or so, but I doubt it and @Real G i completely agree especially album leaks smh

  • Stone

    This guy is such a fucking joke. He thinks hes so much better than he actually is. Tupac was a lyricist. Lil Wayne is NOT a lyricist. His content has no depth and its all shit.

  • Ror Rito

    @ Stone gota suit me last night , waz up

  • Ror Rito

    @stone
    fuck your mother, fucking hater

  • Xicano101

    It makes me sad that we are half way through the year and Lil Wayne only has around 2 songs he can call his own. Drake already has two songs (Dreams Money Can Buy, and Marvin’s Room). Six months for two songs is kinda sad /:

  • Real_G
