Rick Ross Pushes Snow in the ‘Moving Bass’ Video
On their undeniable 2003 opus, Diplomatic Immunity, Cam'ron, Jim Jones and the rest of the crew wrestled with an existential question: "Have you seen Juelz Santana?" If you're looking for him now, a dozen years later, you'll find him in the new Rick Ross video. That's right, the Top 40 mainstay from Miami jetted up to New York to cut the video for "Moving Bass" the Jay Z-featuring cut from Hood Billionaire, the second of his two Def Jam LPs in 2014. Santana's cameo comes alongside those from Gotham up-and-comer A$AP Ferg, Fitzgeraldian social climber French Montana and Ross' Maybach Music Group cohorts Meek Mill and Wale. (As for the latter, Ross rocks a hat throughout the video to promote The Album About Nothing.)
Jay, who only appears on the hook of the song, doesn't show his face in the video, but Ross takes the action to Hov's home turf. Alternately posing for pictures with young fans and menacing his competitors, the "BMF" rapper is right at home in Grand Central and in Marcy. The song was the second collaboration of the year between Ross and Jay; "The Devil Is A Lie," from Ross' Mastermind, sported one of the Roc-A-Fella boss' best verses in recent memory. The two have a long history of working together, primarily on Ross' albums, with songs like "3 Kings" and "Free Mason" being key pieces of the younger MC's records. The pair's "FuckWithMeYouKnowIGotIt" appeared on Jay's Magna Carta...Holy Grail in 2013.
