Wiz Khalifa pays tribute to Paul Walker in new Furious 7 video

Rapper Wiz Khalifa has served up a touching video tribute to late actor Paul Walker in his new promo for the Furious 7 soundtrack.

The hip-hop star released the visuals for See You Again on Monday (06Apr15), after the latest installment in the Fast and Furious movie franchise smashed North American box office records with a whopping $143.6 million opening weekend haul.


Furious 7 is the last film which will feature Walker as Brian O'Conner, after the 40 year old actor was killed in a car crash in November, 2013, while he was in the middle of filming.


His brothers Cody and Caleb stepped in to help director James Wan complete Walker's scenes, and now Khalifa has honored the tragic actor's memory by using footage of the star from each of the movies in the franchise in the video for See You Again.


Khalifa shared the promo with fans on his Facebook.com page on Monday, along with a link to Walker's Reach Out Worldwide charity, which he encouraged devotees to donate to.


The rapper's montage was a big hit with Khalifa's collaborator, Charlie Puth, tweeting: "7 million hits in 2 hours. i know you are watching down on all of us paul, the whole world is thinking of you".


The montage of Walker as O'Conner also features at the end of the hit blockbuster.
