Rick Ross, Gucci Mane and 2 Chainz ‘Buy Back the Block’ in New Video [WATCH]
The eight minute clip, directed by Ryan Snyder, opens with Ross and Gucci working at the car wash before they're belittled by their boss and thus, hatch a plan to buy back the block and empower the community.
“I got a crib in Florida and I don’t even stay there.” He continues, “All of my bars are legal/I used to sell the reffer, now I just sell Adidas…Just closed on a Cali crib ’round the corner from Kobe/Property, property, property, property/N—- I’m tryin’ to invest.”
The theme piggybacks on the movement in hip-hop that encourages financial empowerment in the community, including moving money to black-owned banks as suggested by Killer Mike, T.I., Young Thug and Lil KeKe among others. 21 Savage and Meek Mill also make appearances in the video, which was shot in Atlanta and features plenty community-oriented clips of kids, churches and folks hanging out on the block and in front of a gas station.
The song will likely appear on Ross' upcoming album, Rather You Than Me, which is schedule to drop in January. Until then, check out the video above.
