Waka Flocka Flame brings together his friends Nicki Minaj, Tyga, and Flo Rida in the video for “Get Low,” the latest single off his sophomore album Triple F Life: Fans, Friends & Family. The Benny Boom-directed clip was shot on a soundstage in Atlanta. The Brick Squad rapper cleans up in a white tuxedo, while Nicki dons a curly blonde wig and gold bustier.
“The concept for the video was a red, white, and black color scheme, and a lot of art,” Waka told MTV News. “I wanted to bring hip-hop videos back—choreographing and girls dancing in it. There’s too [many] naked women dancing in videos scenes to me. I feel like I wanna put the art back into it. I feel like it’s my job to put the art and the fun back into the music.”
Nicki was more than willing to lend a hand. “Waka Flocka, he’s my brother,” said the Young Money diva. “People know that I go way back with him, and whatever he needs me to do, it gets done. He called me, he sent me a song, I said, ‘It’s nothing.’ I was finishing up my album, and I said, ‘You know I got you, it’s nothing.’”
On September 13, Waka will release his mixtape Salute Me or Shoot Me Vol. 4 featuring Tyler, the Creator, Gucci Mane, 2 Chainz, Chief Keef, and more.
