Rick Ross and his MMG team are dropping their Self Made Vol. 3 album in just one week, and last week MTV News caught up with them in Miami on the set of two videos, for the singles “Gallardo” and “Stack on My Belt.”
“Ross is the mastermind and he put the record together,” Gunplay said of “Gallardo,” the second single from the album, which features Rozay and Yo Gotti. That clip was filmed right alongside “Stack on My Belt,” featuring Ross, Wale and Birdman, and was also directed by MMG’s Dre Films.
“The concept behind ‘Gallardo’ is basically fly whips,” Dre Films told MTV News. “We’ve got a couple [Gallardos] out here. We have beautiful women, so it’s a fly record and the ladies are gonna love it. This is one of the videos that I notice has the most cameos in it. A lot of the people who are featured on Self Made Vol. 3 are in the video and I’m just glad they came out and showed love and support.”
Ross explained that the song came about organically. “We was in the studio and actually there were four Gallardo Lamborghinis outside, and we pulled up a beat and we just was having fun, man,” he said. “It’s a real good vibe, it’s for the women who really just shooting for the stars. She don’t mean no harm, she just wanna be with a bawse.”
“Stack on My Belt” isn’t any lighter on the high-end accessories, according to Dre Films. “That’s another record that we’re just trying show off all the fly stuff from the artists,” he explained. “We’ve got the Versace belts, Hermes belts. We’re just showing off high fashion, and we’re incorporating different reptiles — the baby gators, the boa constrictors. I’m lucky to be part of it and be able to direct it.”
French Montana stopped by to say a quick “what up” to the cameras while Ross chatted with MTV News. Check out the footage above to see more cameos.
