Mario, Mac Miller, Flo Rida + Wale Debut New Music Videos [NewTube Thursday]
“Tell Me When U Ready” to get “Back 2 Ballin” this NewTube Thursday…
…”Gees”, you’re too slow! Never mind, I found “Somebody Else” to put together these hot new videos from Mario, Flo Rida, Mac Miller and Wale. Check ’em out inside.
Wale feat. French Montana “Back 2 Ballin”
Wale takes us to a digital gaming world in “Back 2 Ballin” featuring French Montana. The two take on the roles of video game characters in this exceptionally creative music video. Two beautiful women, blow the dust off of their Sega Genesis to play a game titled after the track. Gamers from all generations can appreciate the retro look of the two rappers as they live out their dreams of being on a video game. “Back 2 Ballin” originally appeared on Wale’s 2012 mixtape Folarin. That same project birthed his hit record “Bad,” featuring Tiara Thomas, which properly set things off for his latest release, The Gifted.
Mario feat. Nicki Minaj “Somebody Else”
Mario is back, and this time, he’s teamed up with the ultimate Barb herself, Ms. Nicki Minaj! “Somebody Else,” is the lead single from Mario’s upcoming fourth album, which includes a cameo from Nicki Minaj. The clip opens with Mario sprawled across a car on the street and it eventually becomes clear that he was pushed from the window of a skyscraper by his angry girlfriend. Niki Minaj is the perfect fit for the character and her firely personality compliments Mario’s depiction of a messy relationship.
Flo Rida feat. Future “Tell Me When U Ready”
The three-minute Gil Green-directed clip shows the duo doing some wild club partying in Vegas in such hot spots as 1 Oak at The Mirage and at the penthouse of The Palms. After “Tell Me When U Ready”, Flo Rida is set to release another new single and it’s going to be again a collaboration, this time with Miami pop rapper Pitbull for a song entitled “Can’t Believe It”.
Mac Miller feat. Schoolboy Q “Gees”
This week Mac Miller dropped “Gees,” his latest video from Watching Movies With the Sound Off, featuring good friend Schoolboy Q. The two bond over bars, brews and chicken wings in this trippy video. The IllRoots-directed clip uses effects that turn green trees purple and blue skies pink complimenting the drug heavy lyrics. As Mac performs from the top of a suburban car garage, Q sits unaffected in a white fedora and sunglasses, while he makes his way through a Styrofoam container of chicken wings.
