Kanye West, Miguel, Busta Rhymes, DJ Khaled + More Appear in Fat Joe’s Star-Studded ‘Pride N Joy’ Video
Veteran rhyme-slinger Fat Joe gathers hip-hop heavyweights Kanye West, Busta Rhymes, DJ Khaled and others for his star-studded video for ‘Pride N Joy,’ his new single from his still-untitled eleventh studio album. R&B artists Miguel and Ashanti make a guest appearance in the clip as well.
Although there are a slew of rappers in the Hype Williams-directed video, the song originally featured West, Miguel and rap upstart Roscoe Dash. Everybody else makes cameos singing along to the chorus of the lush piano-driven track (produced by Bink!). The clip also features some alluring video vixens and a cameo from every rapper’s favorite sparkling wine Nuvo (we guess because they are sponsoring the video).
Fat Joe said he always wanted to work with Yeezy on a song, so when he heard ‘Pride N Joy,’ he knew he had to get him on it. “You know, he’s one of my favorite rappers of all time, one of my favorite producers, so when he gave me the call, I jumped on that plane immediately and I said, ‘Let’s go,’” Joe tells MTV News.
“It was amazing, man. He’s a genius,” he continues. “To get in there with him is incredible, and he likes perfection, and that only means the record is going to be hot, so, you know I love it.”
The video is certainly a call for unity in hip-hop, which is certainly needed right now. Check out Fat Joe’s video for ‘Pride N Joy.’
