If you’ve been living under a rock for a few years, you should know that the Untouchable Maybach Empire has been out to change the music video game like Puff Daddy once did. MMG has been employing DRE Films to create nothing short of Hollywood caliber visuals that fit into a few minutes of your time. And they’ve done it once again on Rick Ross’ latest, Thug Cry, featuring Lil Wayne. For the third single off of Rozay’s Mastermind album, Wood Harris steps in as a recently released inmate who resorts to his past criminal ways but lives to see a different ending this time around. (It was well played to have the initial negative outlook for Harris’ character reflect the tough times as related by both bosses in their verses.) Ross’ streak of stunning videos leaves me confident that his announced foray into full length feature films won’t be a disappointment. And for those playing trivia at home, bonus points if you knew the sample that J.U.S.T.I.C.E. League employed for the song’s production.
