This particular video is an interesting one (besides the copious amounts of eye candy) seeing that it almost didn’t take place to begin with. As Rick Ross told MTV:
“To be honest, everybody thought about their safety,” Ross said of Def Jam and others’ initial reaction to his idea of having Gil Green shoot the video in the hometown of the late, notorious drug lord Pablo Escobar. “Everybody got on laptops, Googled. First thing that came up was ‘car bombs,’ ‘hostages,’ this, that and all that. I told them, ‘We got some good friends over there. It’s a beautiful spot.’ Even though I’m really gassing them [at that point], they rolled with me. They believed in my concept.”
I’ll spare you the endless punchlines Rick set himself up for in that excerpt alone for the simple fact the video turned out rather nicely. Consider it his “Show Me What You Got.”
And consider this you’re one-stop-shop for EVERYTHING Deeper Than Rap.
