Director X Shares the Stories Behind His Iconic Videos

Ghostface Killah ft. Madam Majestic & U-God, “Cherchez La Ghost” (2000)
Album: Supreme Clientele

Director X: “It was a whole ‘nother treatment. Back in those days, things were really different. I wrote a whole ‘nother treatment. [Talking to] Ghostface was like a fucking private detective trying to find a little girl that has been kidnapped and it just hit me to change it, so I just called them and like, “I’m changing it.” The treatment that they hired me to do and the video that we made was completely different. It was the right choice. Back then, you just kind of had that freedom to [say], “Yo, artistically, let’s change it. It’s not right.” They are like, “Alright, we’ll go for it. We’ll do it.” I loved that video; it was one of my favorites.”
