New music video: Lil Wayne - On Fire

Lil Wayne finally releases a music video. Does anyone still care?

Lil Wayne's seventh album, Rebirth, may or may not be with us anytime soon (rumours are that its release has been pushed back for the 729th time), but the rap/rock star has at least got round to releasing an official music video for his single, On Fire (orginally released last month).

It features the ludicrous 1980s sample of Amy Holland's She's On Fire, lots of Auto-Tune and plenty of fire-related metaphors. The question is: does this whet your appetite for Rebirth (and yes, we know most of it is all over the internet already) or do you curse the day the rapper ever decided to make his debut "rock" record?
