Rick Ross left the sunny beaches of Miami and headed to New York City in the new video for “Movin Bass,” a song from his 2014 album, Hood Billionaire.
Even though many of his videos are dripping with opulence, Rozay keeps things pretty gritty on this one, rhyming in project hallways and in front of tall brick buildings.
Director Ryan Snyder does a wonderful job of capturing the coldness of New York in the winter time, and the gray colors he uses add to that effect nicely.
There’s also a few cameos by rappers like A$AP Ferg, Troy Ave, French Montana, Charles Hamilton and a few Maybach Music Group family members.
Another cool scene shows Ross rhyming in front of a tattered stone wall, with two women next to him. It doesn’t appear that the women are video models, it’s likely they were pulled from the neighborhood where the scene was being shot in, which works.
Jay Z does the hook in the song but doesn’t appear in the video. There is, however, photos of Hov being flashed in and out.
No telling how many more songs from Hood Billionaire will receive videos, since the album has already been out nearly four months, an eternity in the hip-hop world.
As far as a new album, the MMG boss said he’ll take a step back to focus on Meek Mill and Wale’s albums, which will drop soon.
