Watch: Lil Wayne and Mac Miller Release Mountain Dew Ad (Video)

It seems like the hip hop world is infiltrating advertisements everywhere these days.

While Nicki Minaj popped up in Brooklyn for the Jeremy Scott x Adidas shoot and Jay-Z repped for his hood with Rocawear, Lil Wayne and Mac Miller star in the new campaign for lime green soda beverage Mountain Dew.

The two rappers also bring along a roundup of athletes and entertainers including Jason Aldean, Dale Earnhardt Jr., Paul Rodriguez Jr., Theotis Beasley and Danny Davis.

Lil Wayne promotes individualism as he works the crowd during a performance, saying, “Ladies and gentlemen, if you learn anything from me, it’s to find your thing and do you because we all know its not what you do, it’s how you do and this is how we Dew.”

Lil Wayne & Cash Money Dish Out Turkeys in New Orleans

Wayne spreads Thanksgiving spirit in his city, New Orleans

With the turkey holiday less than a week away, Lil Wayne, Birdman and Slim handed out poultry after returning to the city that raised ’em in New Orleans. Weezy and Cash Money Records hosted the city’s 16th annual turkey giveaway Friday.

After his first time back in the Big Easy in 15 years,  Wayne said the gesture itself felt different. “”Those times I did it (handing out turkeys) years ago, I was just a kid and I was just doing it because Baby and Slim, we were giving away turkeys at a park and that’s what we were doin’,” the rapper said. “Now it’s a totally different feeling, because I can actually give you that and say, ‘Here, happy Thanksgiving.’ I can do that, and I can provide that for you. That’s a different feeling in general, and it’s a beautiful feeling overall.”

As you say your grace at Thanksgiving dinner, give thanks to Weezy.
