Last week, MMG with the exception of Meek Mill and Omarion visited New Orleans to film the official visual to Rick Ross’ “Hold Me Back”. The track serves as the third single from God Forgives, I Don’t which arrives July 31. The Taj-directed visual samples Juvenile 1998′s “Ha” video. Swizz Beatz, Current$y and Mia X joined Ross, Gunplay, Wale and Stalley on the set.
“Ha” appeared on Juve’s 1998′s LP, 400 Degreez. Juve shot his video in New Orleans’ Magnolia Housing Projects which is located Uptown (11th and 12th Wards). Ross filmed his visual in Calliope Projects also known as Calio Projects which is located in the 3rd Ward. Music mogul Master P, Silkk The Shocker, C-Murder and Young Money’s Lil Chuckee are from Calio Projects. In the Taj-directed visual, Ross and his crew walked around in the projects, shot a scene with a few up & coming N.O. rappers and gave out Reebok to the youth. GFID arrives July 31.
