Can’t a rap star make a quality music video without any commotion?
That seems to be Fabolous’ take on his new clip, “You Be Killin’ Em,” which co-stars Kanye West ex Amber Rose. If you follow the gossip fodder, the chatter is that the two are more than friends, a claim Loso denies.
“We got a lot of great response and recognition from the ’You Be Killin’ Em’ video,” he told MTV News. “The little spice of hate and speculation, I choose to really exist above that noise. That stuff, you can’t do nothing about [it], and it’s always gonna be there. I tried to bring a great visual to the video world, not just bring the same scenario.”
The Ryan Leslie-produced banger is from Fabolous’ mixtape-turned-official release There Is No Competition 2: The Grieving Music EP. When a preview of the video circulated online featuring a lingerie-clad Rose in some steamy scenes with the Brooklyn rapper (including a few smooches), chatter about a potential new power couple intensified.
According to Fab, however, he picked Rose (who’s been featured in other videos, including Ludacris’ “What Them Girls Like”) because the former Ford model symbolized the message in the espionage-themed visual.
“She embodied the style and grace of complimenting somebody, ’You be killin’ ’em,” he explained. “I think she did an outstanding job as the lead lady in the video. I did OK as well. I think together we made a good duo.”
