Rick Ross & Friends Release A Kendrick Lamar-less “Power Circle” Video (Video Breakdown)Posted by Danielle Harling on 06/26/12 | Filed under Rick Ross, Kendrick Lamar, Video Breakdown, Stalley
0:00 – Nine minutes and 26 seconds? Wow. Sounds like we’re in for a Maybach Music Group mini-adventure.
0:22 – It’s always the most rotund rappers who insist on not wearing t-shirts.
0:43 – For all you mathematicians out there the square root of a corrections officer is also Rick Ross.
0:53 – Something tells me we’re going to see enough Reebok in this video to furnish an entire Foot Locker store.
1:21 – Looking at Gunplay makes me wish that “Queer Eye For The Straight Guy” was still on TV. Those guys could probably work wonders with that hair and tough guy persona.
1:34 – “Where yo lobster, where yo sea bass?” I must add this to my list of Rap Lines To Recite To Strangers.
1:40 – I wish Gunplay would stop “ackin” like “acting” is the hardest word in the English language to pronounce correctly.
2:44 – Ahh Stalley, the talented stepchild of Maybach Music.
3:02 – Take away Stalley’s monstrous beard and he magically turns into Common.
3:54 - *Fast-forwards to 5:30 mark.*
5:30 – Look it’s just too early in the week for Wale and his meticulously styled dreadlocks.
6:32 - There sure is a lot of high-end food references in this song.
6:57 - While I personally like the addition of Kendrick Lamar on “Power Circle” it’s a move that doesn’t seem to make much sense. It seems to me like “Power Circle” was meant to be a sort of bragging song for MMG so why in the hell would you recruit a rapper who can easily out rap everyone? It kinda kills the whole bragging part.
7:01 – And I don’t see Kendrick Lamar…wack sauce.
8:16 – That was some serious cheek to cheek action. No pause.
