Ross recently talked about working with Gray for his new video.
"I think so highly of the record," Ross continued. "When I started brainstorming about visual ideas, I started flipping through some of my favorite movies, such as 'Friday,' such as 'Set It Off,' such as 'The Italian Job,' 'The Negotiator.' Most recently, 'Law Abiding Citizen.' What all these films had in common was they was all directed by F. Gary Gray. That's when I decided: 'This is my favorite director of all time.' Shout out to F. Gary Gray. I reached out to my homie, he just came aboard to direct 'Super High.' This is gonna be special. It means a lot to me. Coming back for my fourth LP. My first three #1's. My first album #1, second #1, third. We following up with this one. We coming with a lot of big surprises. You gotta stay tuned, though. You gotta stay tuned." (MTV)
The upcoming music video stems from Ross' forthcoming Teflon Don album.
