A friend sent this absolutely amazing video to me. It is a fan made music video for The Devil is a Lie by Rick Ross ft. Jay-Z. I am so late to the party on this song, but I think this is the best thing Rick Ross has ever made, and I defy you to find a better Jay-Z verse. The video is two priests lip syncing the lyrics while wearing gold chains, smoking cigarettes, and being… stroked… by tw0 fine ladies. If that doesn’t tickle your fancy, all hope is lost for you.
The video is pure gold.
Last month, the staff of the News Department sat down with Keith Richburg, noted foreign correspondent and former bureau chief for the Washington Post.
