Yesterday afternoon brought a homecoming for a Nashville homeboy who has hit it big. Rapper Young Buck shot the first video for his major label debut album Straight Outta Cashville, with the help of a few famous friends.
South Nashville's tiny Claiborne Street — with its modest single-family homes — was the stage where nationally renowned, multi-platinum rapper 50 Cent and up-and-comer Lloyd Banks joined their associate Buck to film the video. Shot in a parking lot between a small church near the J.C. Napier Public Housing complex and a pastel green frame house, the video also has Buck rapping on top of a rental truck. The video features noted cameos from 50 Cent, Banks and noted hip-hop producer Daz.
The video shoot became a block party. But when 50 cent emerged on the set, clad in a garnet-and-gold baseball cap and white headband, the crowd went crazy. Young girls giggled into their cell phones. When Buck's bass-heavy single played over the loudspeaker, many of the kids bopped their heads along to the beat. Buck's first album is due June 15 on G Unit Interscope Records.
