Lil Wayne – The Making of “Got Money” (Vevo Footnotes) featuring T-Pain

In the episode, Lil Wayne shares that the music video’s cinematic approach was inspired by specific scenes from the film, “Inside Man,” which resonated with the vibe of the song. He reveals that they filmed on the same day as the “A Milli” video shoot, resulting in a long day of filming.

Among his favorite moments were having his Young Money crew in the music video and capturing the scenes in the bank vault. On the other hand, Mack Maine discusses the challenges he faced filming inside a moving money truck, the struggle to stay on schedule, and his excitement about cameos from Young Money family members Nicki Minaj, Twist, and Tyga.

Below is a complete outline of “Got Money” I Vevo Footnotes:

00:23 – Since we shot “A Milli” in one continuous take, it made sense to film “Got Money” the same day, but it was a long day since we were shooting two videos. There were a lot of set-ups with “Got Money.” – Lil Wayne

00:53 – T-Pain and I go way back, and I know his energy would fit the song. – Lil Wayne

01:33 – My favorite moments were having members of my Young Money crew in the video. And the bank vault scenes were pretty cool as well. – Lil Wayne

02:04 – I was inspired by certain scenes from ‘Inside Man’ because they reminded me of the track’s vibe, and I knew I wanted something cinematic for the shoot. – Lil Wayne

02:33 – The hardest part of making this video was just staying on schedule. There were a bunch of scenes, looks, and performances that day, ya heard me. – Mack Maine

03:04 – Man, the whole day was hyped. Performing in the back of the money truck while it was moving and throwing money was definitely dope. That was real money I was throwing up in the air…just kidding! – Mack Maine

04:02 – Young Money always moves as a family, so having Nicki, Twist, and Tyga make cameos was cool. – Mack Maine
