On October 26 Fred Durst, front man for Limp Bizkit, wrapped up shooting for 8Ball’s single “Stop Playing Games“, off the new album Almost Famous. As this marks Fred Durst’s directing debut in the rap world it is going to be interesting to see how he thinks Hip Hop videos should look like.
The unusual pairing of 8Ball and Durst resulted from Durst requesting 8Ball to appear on the remix of “Take a Look Around“.
“I became good friends with 8Ball and he asked me to do his video and I said I’d love to do it. He’s got this real raw style,” said Durst.
The video will soon be on rotations and features Bad Boy CEO Sean “P.Diddy” Combs.
On another note; Almost Famous hits records shops on November 20th, featuring MJG, Bad Boy’s Carl Thomas and Ludacris. So be on the look out.
