While walking into Summer Jam 2008 with my friend Navarre, a man randomly stopped him and and asked him to play Lil Wayne’s stunt double in DJ Khaled’s “Out Here Grinding” shoot the next day in Brooklyn. I linked with Mack Maine later that day and told him about it, and he was confused because the YM camp had already made it clear to the production team and to Khaled that they wouldn’t be attending the shoot because of a prior commitment, so there was no reason to have a Wayne stunt double if they weren’t going to have any Wayne scenes period. He asked me to keep him updated and I said I would.

We went the next day as planned, and as promised, I hit Mack and told him we were definitely shooting. Wayne would end up hitting Khaled and getting into a rift that lasted some time over this, but obviously, they eventually cleared the air and mended any issues. In the meantime, Var did end up shooting a few scenes, and it looked like it WOULD have been pretty cool, had it actually made the video!
