Lil Wayne Talks New Single, Preps 'Tha Carter II'

New Orleans, Louisiana

rapper Lil Wayne recently finished up shooting his video “Fireman”

on location in both New Orleans and Houston, Texas.

The single has already shot up to the top of the Urban radio

charts, with over 100 radio stations adding the single to their playlists.

"It's been a very tough month," Lil Wayne said. "I

put everything I had into this song, and now the video, hopefully as an inspiration

to everyone who wants to see New Orleans come back bigger and badder than ever."

his own label Young Money Entertainment through Cash Money Records.

“Fireman” is taken from Wayne’s upcoming fifth
