Nicki Minaj has always spoken highly of her mentor Lil Wayne but when it came time to shoot the video for “Why U Mad” the Harajuku Barbie took it a step further, proving that imitation is the sincerest form of flattery. Not only did she appropriate his vocal tone and demeanor on the song’s intro, she carried a flow similar to his for her verse and even went as far as dressing like him and christening herself “The Female Weezy”. She took things a step further when she held a faux-interview in her Lil Wayne getup answering a plethora of questions in Weezy mode.
