You’re Killin’ Me: 3 Kings

August 13, 2012 · Posted in editorial, you're killin me · 13 Comments 

I only like music videos if they don’t look like a cheap fan made video. If it helps, some fan made videos are actually pretty good, and this one is fairly crisp: good clips, nice editing. But making a video like this for a song featuring Dr. Dre and Jay-Z is extremely disappointing. Dre and Jay are busy dudes and getting them on a video set can be a task, but it’s possible. Ross is the boss right? Then again, the music video does match the song, they’re both lazy. Just because you got Dre and Jay on a song doesn’t make it a classic, and just because the video features classic clips doesn’t make the video a classic. Ross didn’t try on the song or the video. You’re killin’ me Ricky. This video is lazy, especially for a song titled “3 Kings” in which its participants mostly brag about their riches. The vid’ is cheap boss.

Dr. Dre and Jay-Z practically dissed Ross by not doing a music video for this, unless it was Rick Ross’ choice to put this clip together. Thanks to green screen technology, Dre and Jay didn’t even have to be in the same room for this video. So there’s few reasons for not shooting an actual visual for this. Whenever you have Dr. Dre and Jay-Z on the same track you make time and you shoot a quality music video. It’s unforgivable Ross.

The Maybach Films crew is usually on point with their visuals and this one is really no exception. There’s nothing they could’ve done to save this video. The idea was horrible to start off with. The end result looks like a cheap fan made music video. Just like the track, creativity is missing. How does “911” get a better music video than this? Speaking of “911,” that thing was D.O.A. The good Doc couldn’t have saved that one.

Videos usually come and go. You watch them once and you’re done unless it’s a really good video or if it includes “Illuminati” symbols like Wayne’s “My Homies Still” video. I expected more from a song about “3 Kings.” I would’ve bet you anything that a fan made this video, but nope. It’s official. What’s up with all the black & white Maybach videos lately? “Actin’ Up,” “Hold Me Back,” and now this. Give “Sixteen” a music video; that’s the best track on God Forgives, I Don’t. We would’ve waited for a quality “3 Kings” video. There was no need to rush it. You should’ve held this vid’ back. You’re killin’ me Ross. But hey, at least we got to see a beard-less Rozay.

    well the song wasn’t all that.. so it did not deserve a video imo

    Ross did the same thing with Kendrick’s part in the power circle video. What makes him think that’s a legitament video? Don’t tease the fans and give us clips. I understand promotion, you might not have the money but shit, choose song to make videos for. If they don’t end up on BET, it’ll be YouTube. And a few people only watch it more then once, unless it’s a really good song wit vid. Even if 3 kings was a okay song, the video would have been watched.

    Overhyped song + Pitiful video + An actor playing the role of a rapper equals poor results.

    Most people on rapradar praise rick ross as a god thank god people here know rick ross is ass. Video was terrible, Jay-z’s freestyle barely saved it. Would like a video for Sicteen though.

    @Immortal, *sixteen

    I don’t mind the video as much as I do the actual song. Dre and Ross both had corny verses and Jay kinda did whatever although it was decent.

    Yea gotta admit expectations were never high for ross which is why he never got called out.. the hype for gfid made Ross out to be a GOAT and he isnt.. not saying ross isnt a good rapper but hes not even top 5 mainstream let alone top 5 dead or alive


    no Reply:

    He might have had some gold albums built of hype & a stupid crowd, but he isn’t even in the top50.
    Lyrically he shouldn’t even be considered a rapper, all he does is build hype for himself & gather talented people around him so we wouldn’t notice he sucks…
    Look at ‘don’t hold me back’ 2min30 seconds of hook and barely 2 minutes of rapping…

    Young based god could of done better.. I didn’t even finish watching the video


  11. Rotterdam on August 14th, 2012 9:55 am

    What I think is rather most disturbing is the fact that Dre and Jay would make a track with Ross called ”3 Kings”. They are just insulting thereselfs…


  12. riphop on August 14th, 2012 3:35 pm
