The people who come in last always get the last laugh, and it seems that’s how it turned out for Atlanta rapper Ross Taxin. Coming back for his second visual this year, Ross Taxin flaunts $20,000 in his new music video “My South African Plug”, in the same community that incarcerated and gave him an 18 month sentence. He stated how important it was to film this video, stating “They tried to put me away and take my life on little charges, but I showed them, they couldn’t hold me down”.
Following positive reception from his last music video “$1,750”, which viewed over 100,000 times on Worldstar & Youtube, and also, featured popular Las-Vegas DJ Trap-A-Holics (a.k.a. Mr. Damn Son Where’d You Find This), Ross Taxin said he wanted to drop another music visual when the kids went back to school. “I have over 10 videos loaded up so far. I didn’t know which one to drop. I feel like they gone dig this one the most!” So he called up another childhood favorite DJ Evil Empire Mixtapes to help with the single that’s already running up the Spotify charts, and having Atlanta industry executives take him a little more seriously .
Produced and directed by personal friends, Jordan Bunk (@heyybunk) & Hunter Simich (@huntersimichimages), this video’s production and editing team also featured a lot of star power and recognizable names. This video was edited by the popular international video production team Spacehrts, who have directed numerous videos for notable artists Ka$hDami, Baby $anTana, Sahbabii, & Autumn. He assembled a total of over 6 editors, and said in an Instagram group chat that they were going to be the ones to tell his version of the story.
In the video, Ross Taxin is seen flaunting, skipping, and making a complete mockery of himself and the City of Fayetteville through the downtown area. Even the Fayetteville Police Department was patrolling the area as he shot the video. They still couldn’t stop him, as he taunts his cameraman and throws thousands of dollars on the sidewalk and performs obscene gestures towards cars as they drive past. Shot in 4k quality, the former Fayetteville native carries a yellow CROC purse while waving his Nation’s flag throughout the duration of the 1:30 clip. The song is a braggadocious bop about his ties to South African connections in this freestyle session over a boom-bap hard-bass hitting plug-n-b instrumental.
