There were plenty of people yelling “Free Gucci,” plenty of people shouting out their city: [artist id="2815934"]Shawty Lo[/artist] orchestrated a huge display of hometown pride on Tuesday afternoon in the ATL while filming his video for “Atlanta, GA,” with Ludacris and The-Dream. Gucci Mane is also featured on the track, but obviously couldn’t make the video because he’s currently in jail.
Still, Lo had no shortage of guest stars, with Cee-Lo and Big Gipp from the Goodie Mob, Soulja Boy Tell’ Em, Yung Joc, Lil Scrappy, Mike Bigga (a.k.a. Killer Mike), Baby D, DJ Montay, Zaytoven, Baltimore Raven Daniel Wilcox, DJ Greg Street and Waka Flocka Flame coming to the set. The video was shot at Bedford Pines housing project and at Club Crucial.
“First album out the trunk, I started making some bills,” Luda raps on his verse, filmed at Crucial. “And in six short years I sold 15 mil/ Act a fool in College Park/ Went to school in College Park/ Bought a crib in College Park/ And still live in College Park … I wasn’t born but I’mma die in Atlanta, GA.”
Crucial is one of the spots Lo shouts out in the song.
“Vision’s on Sunday/ Magic City Monday,” Lo boasts, calling out other nightspots as well. “Two dolla Tuesday/ Yeah, you know Shawty comin’ … Ain’t gonna be no hurtin’ nobody/ Crucial on Saturday/ Stationed while you askin’ me/ Headed to the door, ’bout to see what’s happenin’.”
The-Dream was surrounded by ladies for his segment.
“You know where I’m from/ You know where I stay,” he sings on the hook. “From my head down to my socks/ I’m posted in the A/ My Chevy sittin’ low/ My Phantom ridin’ high/ Them A’s go up every time I ride by!”
“Atlanta, GA” will be one of the lead singles from Lo’s forthcoming I Am Carlos LP; no release date has been scheduled.
