Ace Hood ft. Trey Songz “Ride”

Posted on: October 23, 2008

I recently head about this video through my mentor and she told me I just had to watch it, and I recommend it for you too. The song is about his “shorty” riding for him while he takes care of business to get them out the hood. Check it out:

The video starts off as your typical hip-hop video: champagne, yachts, drop tops, beautiful women, you know how it goes. But as it goes on and you’re wondering “what does this have to do with the song?”, it comes together. You get to the end and you see her getting arrested and all of a sudden all the scenes that had you second guessing the treatment for the video starts to makes sense. All of a sudden she disappears from scenes and he’s alone, the beginning shows how life could have been if she was there. I think it depicts the role women often play with there men and how it plays out, very well. It made me think:

How far will women go to “Ride”?…. what exactly does it mean to “Ride”?… and why as women do we put ourselves in these situations, proving ourselves over and over again just so he can see that we are “ride or die” chicks?… and last but not least, what about us? Who’s gonna “Ride” for us?
