Wale – Family Affair BTS (Video)

blame it on Shake June 2, 2009

Wale has been keeping us up to date on his upcoming mixtape through his Twitter. It looks like we should all blame Nicki Minaj for the delay haha. Tomorow we’re getting another leak and Thursday we’ll get a new video. Overall… it looks like a great week for Wale fans. This post though, we get a behind the scenes look at Wale & Rik Cordero’s upcoming video for Family Affair (I’m guessing, the video we’ll get on Thursday). The song — which examines a dysfunctional family structure between a pimp, prostitute and a child — will also be feautured on Cordero’s Inside a Change OST. Here’s a little piece of the sypnosis:

Like a drug addiction, some women have a tendency to be influenced by money and power in ways we’ve never thought possible. For women who engage in prostitution their self value and judgments of character are often skewed by their pimps who present themselves as lovers or father-figures. Our story takes place as a conversation between three characters whose lives are intertwined in a tragic circle of psychological intimidation and manipulation.

Shouts to Three/21 Media. Did you vote for Rik yet?
