Take the standard price of a Popeyes value meal. Now divide it in half. The remaining amount is exactly the budget set in place for the “Marry Me” recording session and music video. Talk about squeezing blood out a turnip.
In an exclusive interview with Baller Alert, veteran rapper (believe it or not, she’s been at this for almost two decades) Rasheeda says although the visual “met her expectations about 80%” it didn’t completely hit its mark.
“My concept for the video was supposed to be like a female Hangover. Me and my girls are out kicking it the night before I get married,” said Rasheeda.
“I kind of wanted the story to fall into place a little bit better but for the most part people got it. But you know, I was just looking for a little more.”
I like Rasheeda and have nothing but respect for her determination as an artist … it’s just that, well, at this point in the game she may be better suited as one of Derek J’s hair models at his next Bronner Bros battle.
Was that a messed up thing to say? Just speaking from the heart. Here’s the thing, I actually like the woman — as a person.
What do you think of the “Marry Me” video? Pat that kitty kat and watch it again! You know you want to.
