Lil Wayne's 'How to Love' video digs deep.
Lil Wayne released the new video for his hit single “How to Love” today, and fans are praising it for its strong social commentary. The messages Wayne explores in the video are deeper than those of most rap videos today and a refreshing change for women who are used to being objectified by hip-hop culture.
The video, directed by Chris Robinson, addresses child molestation and prostitution and speaks out against emotional and physical violence toward women. It depicts the tragic life of a young woman who is molested and abused and eventually becomes a prostitute. Then rewinds time, showing what her life might have been like had her upbringing and circumstances been different.
Did Wayne dig deep enough? Watch it and tell us what you think.
