This past weekend, hip hop royalty came together on the East Coast, as lots of events went down throughout New York City, Philadelphia, and New Jersey. Following Hot 97’s Summer Jam concert, as well as Beyonce’s Formation tour stop on Sunday, tons of rappers stayed in town. And it looks like majority of them got together for an epic day on a private set. Jay Z and Future are preparing to release their brand new song together, “I Got The Keys” that will be on DJ Khaled’s upcoming album, and they invited tons of big names out to appear in a music video. From Pusha T to A$AP Ferg, you won’t believe who was involved in one of the most epic squad photos that hip hop has seen in a long time. We decided to dive into the photo and see how everyone is connected to each other.
Check out the rappers that were on set of Khaled, Future, and Jay’s music video.
Who exactly was on set of the video?
Not only were Future, Jay Z, and DJ Khaled present for the music video filming of “I Got The Keys,” but the visuals will also include Swizz Beats, Pusha T, Rick Ross, Yo Gotti, T.I., A$AP Ferg, Busta Rhymes, Fabolous, and 2 Chainz. All of these names came out in suits for the day of filming this past week in New York City, and we know fans are more than eager to see what the results are. Let’s break down why it’s a big deal that they are all individually included for this moment.
Pusha T has been grinding in the music industry for over a decade, having started out as one half of the rap duo, Clipse, with his brother. While the two eventually parted ways, Pusha made a killing with his career as a solo artist, having been taken under the wing of Kanye West for G.O.O.D. Music. And he has recently been promoted to the label’s president. Fans are currently anticipating his upcoming King Push album, which includes his newly-released Jay Z-featured single “Drug Dealers Anonymous.”
