Southern rapper Rick Ross recently talked about riding alongside Stacey Dash in his new music video, “Super High.”
In addition to Dash, Ross credited director F. Gary Gray for the video’s movie-like scenery.
“It’s a real pivotal point,” Ross said in an interview. “Just for me to be sitting on a Harley Davidson…It was a much bigger video than I have done previously…Just to be sitting on the mountaintop, my arm around Stacey Dash. I’m burning in between takes…She is most definitely a beautiful young lady…She’s also a class act. She was so youthful, vibing, having a good time. So I take my hat off to her. I wanted to do something different, so I put an actress into it. Someone who I was a fan of, someone I wanted to meet. I threw a name at [F. Gary], he texted the number real quick.” (MTV)
Last month, Dash revealed how she became involved in the rapper’s new visual.
“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 music video, 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 atPalm 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)
