Rap-Up TV: Ray J and Migos Cash Out in ‘ATM’ Video

Ray J took over the club on a Tuesday afternoon while shooting a video for his new single “ATM” featuring Migos. Rap-Up TV was on the scene as the VH1 reality star packed Sound Nightclub in Hollywood with some sexy ladies.

“The girl is saying she got her legs open like an ATM. Boom!” Ray J said of the raunchy club banger.

In the provocative clip, the head of his all-female security team ends up falling for him. “Hopefully her legs are open like an ATM by the end of the video and I can cash in and cash out,” he said.

He was also joined on set by the “Versace” trio. “We’re big fans of their music and they’ve been exploding on their own path and they’ve just built a crazy fan base,” said Ray J. “The homies told me to get with ‘em and they was down, so it was just magic.”

Migos returned the love, adding, “It was pleasure to lock in with my boy Ray J. He’s been doing this entertainment for a minute. We makin’ history.”

The song will appear on Ray J’s upcoming EP Ray J Unkut 2, which will also feature a ratchet record called “Never Should’ve Did That.”

He hopes to get back in the studio with his sister Brandy. “She called me and said she wanted to work on this project with me, so she’s flying in Friday,” he said. “God is good. Please God bless me to get back in with my sister and really get focused.”
