Lil Wayne: Visiting home was weird

Lil Wayne

Lil Wayne was flooded with nostalgia when he visited his hometown recently.

The 30-year-old rapper was born and raised in New Orleans, Louisiana, but he now resides in Miami.

Lil Wayne filmed a music video for T.I.'s new single Ball, which premieres Monday, in the southern city recently

He is in awe of the experience.

"It was weird, because we shot it in my 'hood, and he shot it in some spots that I hadn't been in so long," he told MTV News.

Lil Wayne and T.I. filmed the video with New Orleans city dwellers.

Revisiting the neighbourhoods that he grew up in was an interesting experience for Wayne.

"To just even be back in those spots was crazy and just to have that old atmosphere back, that old Cash Money [record label feel], shooting videos with the whole 'hood out there, the whole city out there," he said.

"Just to know that still exists even now, that was awesome."

Your Horoscopes by Russell Grant

Leo:

A hospital, university or government agency could give you the paperwork you require to move ahead. Establish a friendship with an official who can serve as an advocate for you. Avoid getting entangled with a legal matter. Launching a lawsuit will cause more problems than it is worth. You're better off walking away from a troublemaker who has lots of time to waste in the court system. Cut your losses and focus on making a fresh start. You have the ability to build a secure financial future.More
