Rick Ross‘ “Diced Pineapples,” featuring a spoken word intro from MMG affiliate Wale and a sweet hook by Drake, has had us scratching our heads since the beginning. When it was just a title on a track list, we wondered what on earth Ross might have to say about the titular golden fruit. Before it’s release, he suggested that it was inspired by his doctor mandated post-seizure diet, when he ate woke up every morning at at diced pineapples at his doctors insistence. But then we heard the slow-and-sexy song and realized that it’s not about pineapple at all, really. There’s a little fruit-as-sex (“diced pineapple make make my baby taste the best”) and fruit-as-riches (“diced pineapples, talking diamonds by the jar”) action, but it’s otherwise a pretty standard Bawse affair.
And so we held out hope that Ross might go in on a pineapple in the video the way he did that steak in the “So Sophisticated” video. Unfortunately, that’s not the case, as the video that arrived last night features only a flash of pineapple (see below). Instead, the Vitamin C deficient feature finds Ross and his boys and a bunch of pretty ladies taking in beautiful Caribbean sunsets while enjoying a well Instagram-ed vacation. You know, a relaxing affair, just like the doctor would prescribe. Speaking of which, Rick Ross just can’t get enough of the ‘Gram and can be found today joining Fat Joe on his new #nofilter song “Instagram That Hoe.”
