Rick Ross and T.I. Confront Mortality in ‘Bury Me a G’ Video
The video is dedicated to Maybach associate Raymond "PNut" Adderly, who was murdered in 2010
Maybach Music Group head Rick Ross lays out his last will and testament in the Self Made Vol. 2 track “Bury Me A G,” which just got an OG rappers-on-the-stoop visual treatment. Directed by DRE Frilms and Jon J., the clip is dedicated to Ross’ rap associate Raymond “PNut” Adderly, who was murdered in Florida in 2010 during a home invasion. It’s a somber occasion, so Ross has removed his signature sunglasses for a few shots. Footage of hearses, caskets, and a funeral procession fill in the gaps.
The song borrows little from Tupac Shakur’s ’94 trailblazer of the same name (and even less from the 2006 version by Ross’ alleged BET Hip Hop Awards nemesis, Young Jeezy), but the #thuglife sentiment remains the same. When Rozay goes, put him in “clean drawers” and lay him next to his “dawgs.” Grand Hustle boss T.I. offers a short verse before the heavy hook brings ‘er home.
