Wiz Khalifa dumped Amber Rose for Diddy’s girl Cassie… well almost but not really.
Cassie plays Wiz’s love interest in the official video for “Roll Up,” the second single from his major label debut Rolling Papers. The video was filmed in the sunny California on Venice Beach.
In my one on one with Wiz (click here if you missed it), he described himself as “very tall & very high.” He also revealed that the blonde patch in his hair was merely a fashion statement that “they used to do in the 80’s”.
So it’s no wonder Cassie’s shaved temples combined with Wiz’s blonde patch make a really cute couple!
Directed by Jake Davis, the clip opens as Cassie her friends catch Wiz’s eye while hanging out at the beach. They run into each other again later on the basketball court and spend the afternoon holding hands and watching the sunset over the water.
“She’s really, really dope in the video. Just her movement and her following, I felt like it’s just real positive and it matches what we represent.
For the type of chick that we were representing, like a really bossy chick, a chick who has some stuff going, it felt like Cassie was perfect for it.”

The fans spoke and Antwan “Big Boi” Patton listened!
Big took a poll and gave fans the final vote on his next video from Sir Lucious Leftfoot and they chose “Be Still,” which features the angelic vocals of Janelle Monae.
The video was shot over the weekend at Studio Space Atlanta and was done totally in front of a green screen so go ahead and mentally prepare yourselves for a few visual surprises.
You may also notice that there was plenty of Crown Royal Black on deck due to the fact that Big was named spokesperson for the brand back in January.
There are also several cameos, including Killer Mike, Pill and several Dungeon Family favorites. The vid should will be available for your viewing pleasure reeeeal soon but in the meantime, Twan allowed me to grab of bit of behind the scenes coverage.

Killer Mike aka Mike Bigga dropped by the FOX studios rocking his red and black “Freddy Krueger” sweater in honor of Valentine’s Day.
Mike brought along a live band for his first live television performance of “My Mercedes,” a new song from his upcoming April release, “PL3DGE” and “Ready Set Go,” a song that was featured on T.I.’s “F*ck a Mixtape” CD but was so hot that it became a bonafide single.
Mike has been in the studio with Big putting the finishing touches on the project, which I previewed a few weeks ago. There are several surprises on the new CD, including an unexpected love song…
