Video & Song of the day

In one of the most touching videos of his career, Lil Wayne takes us on a life journey with a young girl born into a hostile environment. The young girl, who was almost aborted, grows up around her parents fighting, her father goes to jail, and she’s molested by a family member. As she grows older, she has a baby, turns to stripping to make ends meet before she finally gets the bad news that she’s diagnosed with HIV.

We are then, taken back to her childhood and her mother is now moving in with family members after she gives birth and eventually gets married. This one move, changes everything for the young girl and she experiences a sequence of events that are much different than she would have growing up in a home without ‘love’.

Forget the videos flossing money, cars and girls, this video has a strong message. He did a good job with this one.

Here are the lyrics:

You had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn’t ever figure out
How to love

You had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever
Now you in this corner tryna put it together
How to love

For a second you were here
Now you over there
Its hard not to stare, the way you moving your body
Like you never had a love
Never had a love

When you was just a young’un you’re looks were so precious
But now your grown up
So fly its like a blessing but you can’t have a man look at you for 5 seconds
Without you being insecure
You never credit yourself, so when you got older
It’s seems like you came back 10 times over
Now you’re sitting here in this damn corner
Looking through all your thoughts and looking over your shoulder

See you had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn’t ever figure out
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever
Now you in this corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

For a second you were here
Why you over there?
Its hard not to stare the way you moving your body
Like you never had a love
Had a love

You had a lot of dreams that transformed to visions
The fact that you saw the world affected all your decisions
But it wasn’t your fault
Wasn’t in your intentions
To be the one here talking to me
Be the one listenin’
But I admire your poppin bottles and dippin’
Just as much as you admire bartending and stripping
Baby, so don’t be mad
Nobody else trippin
You see a lot of crooks and the crooks still crook

See You had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn’t ever figure out
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever
Now you in this corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

Oooh,
See I just want you to know
That you deserve the best
You’re beautiful
You’re beautiful
Yeah

And I want you to know, you’re far from the usual
Far from the usual

You see you had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn’t ever figure out
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever
Now you in this corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of crooks tryna steal your heart
Never really had luck, couldn’t ever figure out
How to love
How to love

See you had a lot of moments that didn’t last forever
Now you in this corner tryna put it together
How to love
How to love
