There’s something about Waka Flocka Flame that gets you mad amped for no reason. The new video for “I Don’t Really Care,” directed by Taj, is no different. Trey Songz joins Waka for a flossed out record in which they want everyone to know they’re balling, and have money, and chicks everywhere. But being “baller of the year” didn’t illicit the usual club scene video where stacks of money are thrown in the air. Instead, in this treatment, Waka is a businessman —albeit an illegal one—responsible for the heist of a back alley art auction. Hostages are tied up and art is smashed. We’re not quite sure how the art being destroyed correlates with Waka’s big payoff, but we’re rocking with it.
Gearing up for the June 12 release of his sophomore album Triple F Life, the Dirty South rapper known for his trap and club hits is doing a few things differently, like collaborating with an R&B singer, which isn’t something he normally does. In “I Don’t Really Care,” Trigga woks because the singing isn’t too slow or too soft for such an upbeat banger. We like the variety Waka is giving — from “Round of Applause” to “I Don’t Really Care” to “Foreign Sh*t.” The concept of the video may have absolutely nothing to do with the song. But, guess what? We like it so, we don’t really care.
