New York rapper Action Bronson is looking to pump up a new music video with some help from former World Wresting Entertainment (WWE) wrestler Dave "Batista" Bautista.
According to the Queens, New York rapper, he will knuckle up against Batista, who is also directing, in the upcoming "Symbol" music video.
"He said 'I wanna do this video for you," Action recalls. "'I want to be in it. I want to be in on some villain sh*t and we're gonna have a fight scene.' The concept is pretty much, its just wildness. It's for this song called 'The Symbol' with Alchemist. It's a crazy demented type song. I was thinking the video would be some weird new "Dark Knight" type sh*t. Really dark and weird. He's a weird type of villain. Obviously, I beat the sh*t out of him. I'm definitely gonna DDT him! Hundred percent." (XXL Mag)
Bautista broke the news of getting recruited by Bronsolini earlier this month.
"I'm f*cking stoked to announce I'm making my music video directorial debut with @ActionBronson and @Alchemist in ?#LA? next week!," he tweeted July 7th. (Dave Bautista's Twitter)
Maybach Music Group leader Rick Ross put the bond between hip-hop and wrestling on full blast last January.
You might disagree, but to me, Rick Ross belongs to the upper class of celebrity that I can't imagine doing normal people things. Like, I can't imagine Prince running to the convenience store to buy a half gallon of milk. I can't imagine Jay-Z going to Target to buy a heated blanket and a candle. It's impossible to imagine those people interacting with normal folks. So, the fact that Rick Ross was just chilling with some of his people at the most recent pay-per-view for second-tier wrestling promotion TNA (TNA: Genesis), rubbing his hands and high-fiving wrestlers is about the funniest thing I've seen all day. Like, shouldn't he be running his Wing Stop franchise, or "dealing cocaine," or being a boss in some capacity that doesn't involve high fiving dudes in sweater vest coats or wearing cargo pants? Maybe those People articles are right: Celebrities are just like us! (Prefix Mag)
On G-Unit rapper 50 Cent's "Up" remix, he makes reference to renowned WWE legend Shawn Michaels' "Heartbreak Kid" alias.
In 50 Cent's latest track "Up" featuring Loverance, Young Jeezy and T.I., 50 gives mention to the HBK aka the 'Heartbreak Kid.' Well the man who made that name famous, Shawn Michaels has thanked 50 for the shoutout. In the track, 50 says: "I be on that elite s***, that HBK, Heartbreak Kid Freak s***...." (This Is 50)
