Rick Ross hosts an extravagant pool party in the outlandish new video for “Same Hoes.” The clip opens with a snippet of Rozay’s verse from Meek Mill’s “Make It Work” and a slow-motion shot of the rapper gracefully diving into his body-packed pool.
The champagne-soaked festivities come with flying dollar bills, scantily clad women and Ross sauntering around in a Versace robe and puffing a cigar while sitting on a throne. Adding to the theme of camaraderie expressed in the lyrics of “Same Hoes,” the video features cameos from various Maybach Music Group MCs including Meek Mill and Wale.
Ross released “Same Hoes” back in July along with his contribution to the Suicide Squad soundtrack, “Purple Lamborghini,” with Skrillex. Earlier this month, Ross released another new cut, “No U-Turns,” but compared to his 2015 output — the LP Black Market and two mixtapes, Black Dollar and Renzel Remixes — the rapper has been subdued this year.
In a recent interview with Rolling Stone, Ross said that his slower release schedule was due to moving from Def Jam to Epic Records: “When I left Def Jam, going to Epic Records, that was August 1st … It was a situation where any music that I released, it would’ve been ate by Def Jam … That’s why you ain’t getting no music over the last couple of months from the Biggest.”
