While rapper Rick Ross sits in his Miami mansion sipping on green tea and chomping down on a large fat juicy steak (well done) for breakfast there is uproar brewing across the ocean over the release of his new music video Hold Me Back which was shot in Lagos (Nigeria) earlier this year.
In the video Big Ricky walks through the slums of Lagos wearing his trademark gold chains, hands out dollar bills to poverty stricken children and is surrounded by a group of shirtless men.
During this visual journey the only word that can be heard clearly coming from Rick’s mouth is “niggas, niggas, niggas”.
Many have spoken out against the video saying that it depicts Nigeria in a negative light while others argue that the track is about the ghetto so it made sense to film the video in the slums and therefore don’t see what all the fuss is about.
