Rick Ross has dropped the visuals for “Santorini Greece,” one the standout tracks from his most recent effort, Rather You Than Me.
Few rappers do laid-back and luxurious like Rawse, and this Ryan Snyder directed video, which finds Ross sipping champagne and enjoying the gorgeous views in Greece, is no exception. Ross kicks it about the game on the track, reminiscing on his come-up, appreciating where he is now, and getting reflective about how even his riches don’t erase the threat his blackness in this country.
“We in the last days, these racist agendas/Blatant double standards because I’m a n—-/Jesse Jackson on them people payroll (f— him)/When you black, lips chapped ’cause the game cold/I’m givin’ n—-s jobs when I sing songs (let’s go),” he raps on the mellow, Bink! produced track. “White man love me when I get my bling on (n—-)But you hate me buyin’ real estate in foreign land (what)/Respect my genius, all my people Portishead (what).”
The release the video comes on the heels another recent accomplishment for Ross, the birth a baby girl with Briana Camille. You can check out his latest video above.
