XXcLusive: Rick Ross Debuts the Trailer for “Yella Diamonds”
If you don’t give The Bawse Rick Ross his proper respect, apparently you’ll be on the wrong end of some very harsh retribution. Ross debuts the trailer for his Dre Films-directed video today (February 7) right here on www.xxlmag.com. In the clip, Ross is very clear and concise with the orders to his soldiers.
“Oh, niggas wanna play?,” he asks rhetorically. “I’m gonna show them how I play, nigga. ‘Yella Diamonds’ on deck, nigga. I’m cuttin’ checks. Take them niggas heads off. Fuck ’em all. God forgives, I don’t.”
From there, chaos ensues, and it looks like the storyline will follow along the rap lines of the song’s second verse.
“You know we roll up like Jamaican niggas/No marijuana, talkin’ bout killin’ these hatin’ niggas/The time is now fuck all the waitin’, nigga,” he rhymes. “I can’t hold back all these Haitian niggas/ You know they talkin’ home invasion, nigga/Seein’ your daughter scream can be very persuasive, nigga/First question, ‘Where the safe at, nigga?’/All in your woman’s face, fuck up her make-up nigga.”
Yesterday, XXL posted the first photos from the video and the clip’s director, Dre Films, gave a brief description of the his latest work.
“This is one of my best videos,” Dre described. “It has a little story to it. We kind of took from the song. I’m excited. I can’t wait for people to see it on XXL. We shot it in Miami about two weeks ago, so it was love. We got a couple of actors. The Bawse came through and gave me a lot of energy. You’re gonna really feel it with this video. It’s the second video from Rich Forever. It’s one of the songs everybody loves.”
Everything culminates on Wednesday (February 8) when the video for “Yella Diamonds” premieres exclusively on www.xxlmag.com.—Shaheem Reid (@shameemreid)
