Rick Ross has enlisted Erykah Badu to helm the upcoming video for his song, “Maybach Music 3,” he announced on his Twitter page.
“@fatbellybella will be directing the video #maybachmusic lll ft.@tip, @Therealkiss….#classic,” Ross revealed in the tweet, shouting out T.I. and Jadakiss, who make guest appearances on “Maybach Music 3.” Badu also lends her vocals to the track.
This is not the first time Badu and the Bawse have collaborated. After jumping on a remix of Badu’s “Window Seat,” Ross confirmed to MTV News that the Dallas diva and the Miami MC were working together on a video for the track.
“I had to come get the queen,” Ross said about the “Window Seat” remix clip, which picks up where Badu’s controversial vid leaves off. “It was only right. I was swerving through Dallas in that Porsche Panorama turbo. I had to slide up on her, scoop her up. We got back to business. We went on another caper.”
While Badu is spending more time behind the lens with “Maybach Music 3,” Ross has been logging time in front of the camera with a slew of videos in the works. The MC told MTV News about his video plans for “Blowin’ Money Fast (B.M.F.),” “MC Hammer” and the Kanye West-produced “Live Fast, Die Young,” which Ross wants acclaimed filmmaker Spike Lee to direct.
“When I was in Hawaii, me and Kanye did a different kind of record, and it may take a different kind of director,” Ross said. “I had a private get-together in Miami. Spike came out, we discussed a few things. It’s one of those things [that] I call ’speaking it into existence.’ I feel once I put something in my mind, I can accomplish it.”
