In Rick Ross’ latest video, “Aston Martin Music,” the Miami rapper rides smooth in a luxury automobile of the make mentioned in the song’s title.
As the clip’s story line unfolds, his love interest hits a speed bump as the feds nab her on the strip for a crime Ross committed.
“When I’m alone in my room, sometimes I stare at the walls,” Ross raps on the song — in a nod to LL Cool J’s “I Need Love” — after losing his leading lady. “Automatic weapons on the floor, but who can you call?/ My down bitch, one who lives by the code/ Put this music sh– aside, get it on the road.”
Later in the video, Ross’ woman is sprung from prison after finishing her bid, and the rapper is waiting for her with keys to her own Aston Martin. The Gil Green-directed clip — which premiered Wednesday on BET’s “106 & Park” — also features Chrisette Michele and Drake, who team up to sing the chorus.
The video combines Ross’ version of the song with the remix Drake released titled “Paris Morton Music,” which also features the Toronto star rapping a verse. In the clip, Drake appears beachside in between a pair of Aston Martins as he recites his rhymes.
Last month, Ross tipped off MTV News that his video would feature the extended track.
“We were just going over treatments for ’Aston Martin Music,’ ” Ross said at the time. “We’re going to shoot the dope version: Drake’s going to be rapping his verse and Chrisette [will be there] and most definitely me. We’re just finalizing all the details.”
