Lil Wayne Reborn As Nirvana’s “Nevermind” Baby

Lil Wayne has been fascinated by Nirvana since first seeing “Smells Like Teen Spirit” music video. In a new clip promoting the new BreadOverBed website, the award-winning rapper showcases a piece of art in which a young Wayne replaces the iconic Nevermind baby. 

In the clip, released by site co-founder DJ Scoob Doo for BreadOverBed.com, the skateboard-toting Wayne is perched between two large framed photographs. On the left, Albert Einstein, on the right, one of the most beloved album covers in rock history; Nirvana’s Nevermind. But the Nirvana cover art has been altered with an image of Wayne replacing the now 20 year-old Elden Spencer.

“It’s a lifestyle. My lifestyle. Bread Over Bed is fearless, relentless, never quit, never give up never break, never stop,” he said, of the site. “Bread Over Bed the reason why other people think you are different and why you look in the mirror and know exactly what you are.”

He pointed to the picture of himself as the Nevermind baby: “Shout out to my N**** Lil Tune,” he said, before grabbing his skateboard and making an exit.   

While the superimposed image may rankle some Nirvana fans, Wayne has long counted himself among the Cobain loyalists. He has credited “Smells Like Teen Spirit” with being one of the first rock songs that spoke to him.

“I was young and I identified with the lyrics,” he once told MTV. “And I probably felt at that time that I was rebelling and I could relate to the things he was talking about.”

Check out the video below. What do you think about Lil Tunechi aka Lil Wayne as the Nevermind Baby?
