Thursday at 7 p.m., MTV will premiere the first video by Lil Wayne since he was released from prison. The single, "6 Foot 7 Foot," is from the much anticipated forthcoming, "Carter IV," LP. Weezy's last album, "I Am Not A Human Being," went gold, and according to Wayne, without any promotion and only one video. In fact, Lil Wayne actually wanted to shoot another video from the "Human Being" album after he left his jail cell, but was advised against it by his manager who thought too much time had passed. Weezy will also be answering questions from fans after the video's world premiere. To submit a question, go to MTV.com or use the hashtag #askweezy on Facebook or Twitter.
A dozen "American Idol" contestants will be featured on the upcoming album, "American Idol 10th Anniversary - The Hits," released March 15.
