The music video for Rick Ross‘ “Super High” Teflon Don lead single that features Stacey Dash and singer Ne-Yo has debuted online.
The video is director F. Gary Gray‘s first in roughly four years.
Rick Ross is sitting on top of the world. The Bawse snatches Clueless hottie Stacey Dash from her overbearing man and rides through the desert on the back of his Harley-Davidson in the Easy Rider-inspired video for “Super High,” the first single from his new album Teflon Don. Ne-Yo joins the motorcycle gang and F. Gary Gray returns to direct his first music video since Jay-Z‘s “Show Me What You Got” in 2006. Ross can thank his new manager Diddy for that connect. (Rap-Up)
Earlier this month, Ross described the song’s overall concept and creation.
“The concept actually came from me and Diddy — we was running around New York City one night, went back to his penthouse and that’s where the actual term ‘super high’ comes from,” Ross explained. “It’s 5 o’clock in the morning. I’m just burning, I’m thinking. [Diddy] turned on ‘Purple Rain,’ Prince. A few homies were in there — D Roc, me and him reminiscing, talking about Biggie. After the conversation I just stopped watching the movie and walked to the huge window. And I was reflecting like, ‘Wow.’ It had me reflecting on how far I came as a artist and as a person.” (MTV)
Prior to the video debuting, Ne-Yo spoke on Ross’ role in the visual.
“It’s basically Ross and his gang riding around doing what they do,” guest star Ne-Yo said of the clip. “This is my first time working with F. Gary Gray. So far, so good. He’s a movie director, so everything is gonna have that cinematic edge to it. It’s gonna look like a mini-movie as opposed to just a music video.” (MTV)
Actress Stacey Dash recently talked about filming the music video with Ross.
“F. Gary Gray called me and he’s a director that I wanted to work with for a very long time. He’s like ‘Look I’m doing this musicvideo, it’s based around Harley Davidson and it’s going to be amazing, will you do it with me?’ I said, ‘Of course! You’re F. Gary Gray! I love your vision, yes! We shot it Sunday and Monday at Palm Desert–both 18-hour workdays. I play the video vixen. I’m in a Lamborghini and he pulls up on me. I’m not having a good time with my man and he’s like ‘Come with me.’ There’s about 20 guys in Harley bikes surrounding me. I’m like ‘Heck yeah, I’m getting on the bike!'” (VIBE)
