It’s celebration season for 50 Cent, who dons a black tuxedo and an air of sophistication in the new visuals for “Twisted,” the final music video, released Monday (May 19), in his Animal Ambition series.
Set in a lavish nightclub, the Eif Rivera-directed clip begins with Fif surrounded by equally dapper male companions toasting to success with a parade of beautiful women as Dutch singer Mr. Probz croons over the smoothed-out track.
While smoking the finest cigars and popping bottles, Forbes’ #5 wealthiest rapper expounds on his comeuppance in the rap game with lines like “We done came so far, I mean look where we are/ If they don’t call us by name, they call us entrepreneur” and “I’m fond of the phrase ‘if there’s a will there’s a way’/ ‘Cause we come from the part where only killers get play.”
The biggest surprise, though, is the unmentioned cameo by Tony Yayo. Let’s all hope Yayo raising a glass with Curtis means the longtime partners-in-rhyme have ended their beef and have plans to collaborate again in the near future (Summer Jam 2014?).
Animal Ambition, which features guest appearances by Jadakiss, Yo Gotti and Trey Songz, is slated to drop June 3.
