“Here is a jam that waka and i made at the crib,” tweeted Mac. “Just some cool shit, it is music for the sake of creating.”

Waka Flocka Flame and Nicki Minaj

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.
