For his new "Get Low" video, rapper Waka Flocka went the artsy route for the Benny Boom-directed clip. He brought in friends Nicki Minaj and Tyga, and the track appears on Waka's sophomore album Triple F Life: Fans, Friends & Family. He spoke about the video's concept to MTV's RapFix saying,
“The concept for the video was a red, white, and black color scheme, and a lot of art. I wanted to bring hip-hop videos back—choreographing and girls dancing in it. There’s too [many] naked women dancing in videos scenes to me. I feel like I wanna put the art back into it. I feel like it’s my job to put the art and the fun back into the music.”
Nicki chimed in about her involvment saying,
“Waka Flocka, he’s my brother. People know that I go way back with him, and whatever he needs me to do, it gets done. He called me, he sent me a song, I said, ‘It’s nothing.’ I was finishing up my album, and I said, ‘You know I got you, it’s nothing.’”
