Video: Maino Talks ‘Million Bucks’

via MTV:

We’re going to keep things in BK. Maino, you did it. You put that album out, homie. Surprisingly, Main is the first new artist from New York to release an album on a major label in quite some time. Let’s hope this continues. We recently went out to the set of his video for “A Million Bucks” featuring Swizz Beatz.

“It’s been a long time since they seen a new, New York artist get this far.” Main said.

The scene we caught Maino filming was a part in the video where he pulled a heist on an off-track-betting type of establishment and took some of that money they made from horse races. He and his crew took the money back to the ‘hood and had some fun giving it away.

“The concept, you see Maino with ‘A Million Bucks featuring Swizz Beatz.’ From the outside, it may look like it’s just a song about getting money or having fun,” he said. “[The video] is kinda like the opposite of it. When I heard the song, [Swizz] had the hook already on there. It was like, ‘I might give away a million bucks.’ I was like, ‘Swizz, I ain’t got a million bucks.’ He was like, ‘I do!’ I thought of a way to put me in a situation without saying, ‘I actually got a million dollars.’ I’m basically, ‘I wanna give back to the ‘hood. It’s hot in the ‘hood. You got feds in the ‘hood. I’mma come back to the ‘hood and give back to the ‘hood. I’mma come bring some sunshine.’ ”

Main said other than Swizz, the only cameos he was concerned about in his video were those from the locals. “I don’t do it for them,” Maino said about the people from the neighborhood. “I do it for these people. They here every day. They live here. It’s more important for them to be in the video than it is for the so-called celebrities to be in the video.”

    ATCQ is very naive…It must be because he is young….

    If the bitch is from LA or NY…its not hard to reach those numbers….especially with nightlife in both of those cities…

    –Tsk tsk, Look at me b, i does this for a living.

    Why can’t a female do what she wanna do w/o getting a bad label? If she feels that nigga is cute, and she nor he is in a relationship why can’t they do the damn thing? Why she gotta be a slut? Cause she slept with more niggas that you would like her too? Now if she sleeping with niggas and don’t have a reason, or sleeping with niggas for chickem boxes then yeah, she a slut, but I know bitches that fucked hella niggas & still gets the upmost respect.

    –Yes nigga shes a slut. Just like women typecast niggas as dogs for fucking mad women.

    20 dicks by 21 isnt being a slut……….. Thats a women who doesnt have respect for herself or her box and just gives the box to any nigga wit a smile.

    *salutes self for marrying a broad with zero dicks in the jacket, word to the sheets of the bed in our hotel looking like the flag of japan (upload.wikimedia.org/wikipedia/commons/6/6d/Japan_flag_-_variant.png)*

    ^No disrespect…but that doesn’t mean you wife wasn’t doming niggas up…and doing anal…

    I know plenty of bitches that don’t even consider head sex….They think its like giving a kiss on the cheek…and they do it with regularity and consistency…

  7. Muscles and Bubbles Says:

    @ sean coonery i hear u broski – and anal is very common in the middle east where girls are obssessed with keeping the hymen intact – but me and my wifey was both really religious when we got married (had to kill the witnesses because my beard was pokin out lol) so i’m pretty sure she ain’t never dealt with dudes like that. i definitely know friends of hers though that rock the head scarf and act like they on their deen but then do all type of wild shit. not to mention plastic surgeons can re-create the hymen now so the broad bleeds like hell even though she been with hella dudes. shit’s scary.

    ^^
    yea until they choose not just you poon. Then i promise you will be callin her names

  9. Sean Coonery Says:

    Real Talk we are all going to take the L when we get married….

    Because we will be wifing up some other niggas jump off, some other niggas throwaway and some other niggas side chick…

    True story….I know chick that got gangbanged by me and three other niggas….and she ended up getting married to a clueless nigga…

    I was in shock when I seen her at the supermarket…and she had a ring on her finger…

    @ Rigz

    I’ll be a 100% honest, I never shitted on him but I also never gave a shit. It definitely took him linking up with these other dudes for his true vicious MC’ing skills to be accentuated. I also think Budden’s linking up with these dudes has truly been a humbling experience for him, I’m sure he now knows he’s not the nicest nigga walking the planet now.

    I also hope the album has that Budden/emo-esque feel to it but mainly because it’s what I prefer. I read that Budden said there will be a few songs in the same vein as Move On.

    Royce and Crooked have definitely owned most of the songs they’ve been on together, Buddens third and Joell last but all have done their thing, nonetheless.

    SLAUGHTERHOUSE!

    If you’re a hip hop connoisseur how could you not love what’s going on..

    word to my ex who was a virgin & used to dome me up something proper. I actually preferred it at the time. I’m sure she was horrible with her hip game.

    She was a monster on the knob though.

    but that don’t mean that Chea’s girl wasn’t good. Don’t assume too much.

    ^^^women are emtional creatures and have different reason for sex than men.
    Men buy sex with love and Women buy love with sex. So you just can’t ensure your future or survival with a female that has no value of love.
    She’s damaged product.

    –Gangbangs is the closest you can be to being straight and a homo. No shots sean

  14. The Watcherz Says:

    whats wrong with whores??
    that like totally the new wave. Conservative women are like so 90”s. I bet you i get feeling for a whore before a good girl. Whores keep it real. Good girls got too many secrets for my taste.
    Whores rule!!!!!

    ^So if I fuck 20 bitches by 21 I don’t have respect for my wood or myself? Are we still living by this double standard?

  16. A tribe called quest aka The Latin Teddy Ruxpin Says:

    aight i gave ya’ll enough of my time. Im not gonna site here and call Watcher, CS88, Sean, and Joe liars cause they probably encountered some foul women.

    *Daps all ya’ll*

  17. Muscles and Bubbles Says:

    @ hoots my buddy’s buddy wifed a ex-stripper broad who used to do bachelor parties (i.e. slobbing knobs of frat boys for $20) and now she in the burbs raising seeds and shopping at walmart

    she still got the stripper tats lol

    this shit ridickaliss (c) gucci

  18. Big_seth Says:

    there are plenty of sluts & slores out there, but all girls are not. & just because a girl got some DOTJ don’t mean she is one of them. Now if some of those said dicks got the same date & time on them… then maybe. LOL

  19. Joe 88 Says:

    well most of us are in our 20’s & 30’s right

    so that means that our mothers was uh, around 21 in the 70’s

    WHEN NIGGAS WAS RUNNING AROUND FUCKING EVERYTHING MOVING, so that would make our moms……………..right

    Now think about the definition of slut & independant

    If a bitch wanna fuck me but don’t wanna be labeled a slore, she’s gonna be more of a slore in my eyes, and a idiot, cause i’ma good fuck, lol
