Radio, music videos, mixtapes and digital presence are all fine gauges of what’s hot in hip-hop, but the set lists at gentlemen’s clubs should never be overlooked.
At the moment, Tyga’s “Rack City” seems to be the current strip-club crown holder, and now with the remix video featuring Wale and Fabolous coming, the record doesn’t appear to be losing steam any time soon.
“I’m just happy that I can be a part of a record that’s influencing and making so many young, ambitious dancers so much money,” Wale playfully told MTV News from the set of Tyga’s remix video in Miami.
This past Friday, Tyga gathered Wale and Fab to shoot their portion of the “Rack City” video. On set, the trio joked about how the track keeps strip clubs open for business.
“I think it’s important that we continue to make songs like this, because it’s keeping the whole game of … ,” Wale started before completely losing his train of thought.
“The cycle of the economy,” Loso chimed in.
“It’s very beneficial to so many young women across the country,” Wale picked back up. “The strip clubs are stress relief. Welcome to Rack City!”
Tyga just nodded in agreement. “Everything they said,” he added with a laugh.
The DJ Mustard-produced track is slated to appear on Tyga’s upcoming Young Money debut Careless World. The song’s original was adapted from the “Grand Theft Auto” series of video games. In the clip, which weaves a campy crime tale with performance shots, Tyga plays an out-of-luck bandit who steals from the fictional Rack City’s underworld boss, Mr. Rose.
