Vidzone Update: The Cool Edition – Lil Wayne, Judas Priest & Dimitri from Paris

Wrap up tight, it’s gonna get frosty! This week (and most weeks, let’s face it) VidZone is cooler than an eskimo wearing hot pants made of ice. We have an igloo-load of new content making its way into a sub zero Zone near you, and the service that keeps on giving continues its mission this week. Whether you’re a Hip-Hop Husky, a Pop Penguin or a Metal… Mountain Goat?… we’ve been working hard to fill your freezer with music videos.

Artist Of The Week – Lil Wayne


Who else to kick off our cooler than cool offering than the coolest Wayne of them all (potentially behind Wayne from Wayne’s world) – Dwayne Michael Carter, Jr. Weezy, Young Carter, Birdman Jr. Whichever nickname you want to refer to him by, Lil Wayne, the award-winning American rapper and songwriter, is one of hip-hop’s hottest (and coolest) musical properties. Hence why we have deemed him worthy of our highly sought after Artist Of The Week spot this week. Make sure you check out his playlist which includes latest single ‘My Homies Still’ feat. Big Sean, as well as the global smash ‘Mirror’ feat. Bruno Mars and previous hit ‘Lollipop’ feat. Static Majorb.

Now over to Candice with the best of the rest.
