Lil Wayne, French Montana, and Fat Joe

Fat Joe is deadly with a mic in the video for his latest posse anthem “Yellow Tape.” Joey Crack assembles an all-star lineup including DJ Khaled, Lil Wayne, A$AP Rocky, and French Montana for the clip, which was shot in Miami.

“I wanted to make a record that would go in the clubs, so we flipped the sample from ‘Ante Up,’ which is one of the most legendary hip-hop songs of all time,” said Joe. “The record is produced by Infared and Illa and arranged by RoJ & TwinkiE.
