Hip-Hop Rumors: Lil’ Wayne’s Music Video Eerily Similar To Colorado Shooting

Lil’ Wayne’s new music video for “My Homies Still” featuring Big Sean has a few scenes in it that are eerily similar to the Colorado massacre that took place last week in a Aurora movie theater. The scene in question features Lil’ Wayne performing in a movie theater with 12 skeletons. Exactly 12 people died in that movie theater while trying to enjoy The Dark Knight…creepy.

Later in the video, the camera pulls back to reveal many more skeletons, but in the main scenes 12 are visible.

Another creepy similarity is in one scene where Lil’ Wayne is skateboarding on a suburban street, smoke bombs are set off. The killer set off smoke bombs before he opened fire in the theater. And, at 3:28, a mirrored reflection in the window nearly takes on the shape of a bat.

Some people are calling for the video to either be pulled off the air or re-edited in light of the recent tragedy. Check out the video below. The movie theater scenes starts at the 3:35 mark. Do you think it is offensive to the families of the victims?

Also, so you know, this is purely a coincidence. The video was released on July 17, three days before the Batman massacre in Aurora, Colorado. Do you think Wayne and his team should re-cut the video to delete the movie theater scene?

    You might as well write “Has Lil Wayne orchestrated the Colorado shooting?”.
    Pretty much the same shitty content…

  • ebonyhud

    No they should not pull it. It was a coincidence. This should be the last thing that they should be thinking about. Getting justice against Holmes is whats important right now.

      im sure if the shoe was on the other foot. you be saying otherwise. i bet my bottom dollar.

      me i dont care either way. just pointing out the obvious

  • Shit like this happens music videos, Eminem’s “Toy Soldiers” referenced his best friend (Proof) getting shot up and dying at a night club and what happened? He got shot up and died at a night club. It’s how the World works. Read between the lines

  • Im a huge rap fan ive been coming to this website for 7 years commenting on dumb shit and talking crap. But being and living in Denver this really hit people around here hard, so many people i know knew somebody who got hurt. I personally think Lil Wayne should at least say it was a mistake or he is sorry for the coincidence, me myself absolutely hate lil wayne. But he has alot of fans out here so it would only be the right thing to do.

    • Bumpy Johnson

      the video came out way before the shooting

    • dj next up

      Theres more skelletons in wayne video than 12 they cropped out the others smh

  • immackulate

    call me SARCASTIC/CYNICAL but you forgot to add that OLD DUDE “hated lil wayne” too

    • Brian Andrew Smith

      i was thinking the same thing. see that is the weird part about this story yet ole sydney has no idea how to be an actual journalist. Here’s the weird story “Lil Wayne’s new video eerily similar to shooter who despised weezy’s music”

  • This is idiocy and reaching at it’s worst.

  • the guy hated lil wayne too so maybe he wasnt that cazy huh? lol..

  • Brian Andrew Smith

    he should pull the video simply because it fcuking sucks.

    • Brian Andrew Smith

      seriously wayne, its obvious you are ripping of rella, song similiar style beat, and the video concept is similiar. drugged out suburbia and skateboards. “suicide watch n****, kill youself”.

    • true

    • AMEN

  • King Cold

    saw this same stuff on satanism in hip hop episode 39 yesterday. so props to syd for spreading the message

  • Kool Lon

    First thing is first… Sydney, please learn to spell. Secondly, please stop trying to gain exposure for your articles by tying them to current events that are not related to hip hop… I am no fool, some of us know that by doing this your site & article become relevant when doing searches… nice try, but this is pathetic! I usually don’t mention how silly your articles are (but they are) but this is one of the worst stretch attempts I’ve seen in a while.

  • No wtf how that make sense he shouldn’t have to remove it its not showing no shooting in the movie theater or nothing the song is stupid but its not going to hurt nobody smfh yall find alot of stuff to argue about don’t y’all ?

  • bigpreach13

    can we pul lil wayne……

  • Blackstallion777

    I would say Lil Wayne should have edited the video and cut out the theater scene, but the video came out before the shooting and I thought the shooter was inspired by a Lil Wayne video seeing as how he didn’t even like him or even rap for that matter. [P.S. I’m not a Lil Wayne fan]

    to change this while bs intriecate plot by this site and other losers…imma change the mood on here…i gave him a hard time lately but, minus the ross and swiss song that nas cd makes me like rap again…and im in texas..the last cd that was all round good like this was scarface MADE..nas did his thing….cherry wine is the best song i have heard in a minute..again i now like rap again because of this cd…..

  • Wow..strange coincidence. Stuff like this happens all the time, almost like a premonition. It is eery to say the least. I had to read this. The video came out before the shooting and has nothing to do with it. I’m sure out of respect for the families it will not be played as often or not at all for now. Pretty difficult decision to make. Good catch of details Sydney!

  • Until, and only until people realize “entertainment” is a word used that can alter the outcome of ones thinking towards a subject. Then, we will see people standing for something and not accepting any and everything that is “entertainment”

  • EQ

    man what is wrong with the hiphop media..stop with the bs

  • The music industry is a puppet to the one EYE which orchestrated all of this and lil wayne’s video. The illumanti always gives clue to what it’s about to do!!! i guess it’s something they get off @!

  • scullyson

    smh… Stupid a** video Period end of discussion.

  • Another reason why Lil Wayne is falling off.

  • dj next up

  • Q.

    “this is purely a coincidence” LOL

    …As much of a coincidence as 9/11 being forecast in about a dozen different movies.

    Thought precedes matter.
