In a hand-picked blog post, Suite903 uses the female and male perspective to deconstruct a relevant theme. Dirty Money's new video, “Hello, Good Morning” prompts this week’s open discussion with Venus vs. Mars.
Mars: There will be no continuation to Dirty Money's "Hello, Good Morning." No part two, no bookending the extravagant playdate between Hype Williams, Dirty Money, Rick Ross, T.I. and Swizz Beatz. We saw it all from the 40-second trailer, or rather the sequence of scene setups of the starring and supporting cast frolicking around LA. All the drama created by the cataclysmic sounds of the sinister drums was all to build up hype (not the director). Everything we were anxious about happening, didn't happen. What was the point of the preview if the full video shows all the same footage in damn near the same order? I'm not saying Diddy and Hype Williams have to re-invent the wheel every time they put their heads together. The pyrotechnics, helicopters and exotic cars, a nice touch to bring the big budget feel to Diddy's flashy and fly production. But all that glitter ain't gold because for starters, the helicopter is just some random decoration that hangs in the video with no purpose whatsoever. Who's in it? Where's it going? Will it fly backwards at least to bring some level of excitement like the car chase in "Hypnotize"? Really guys, Diddy put on a better show in Waka Flocka's video and trailer! All that aside, I'm looking for Ciroc to sponsor this new flavor I'm working on—Teardrops.
Venus: If we're gonna touch upon the lackluster plot of this video then I think it's best that we maybe break down a serious problem. What is Dirty Money? If I had to guess from this video I would say the group comprises of Diddy, The Double R Bawse, and T.I., with frequent Swizz Beats cameos. Maybe Swizz is the DJ? The two women in the group have minor walk-on roles in this song. Maybe they do in all the songs. Diddy is the center piece in this pyrotechnic drama—the protagonist and villain. He's running around in a Bentley and dancing and they're just chillin' in the background making thug faces. I can't say I'm mad though. Diddy is the centerpiece of his own universe. It's his world and we're just part of the backdrop. We are the fireworks that explode behind his diddybop. I will never tire of seeing that man "work" and push his brand. A man who uses the phrase "pee pee" in describing his competitors is a great man, a lawless man, a Diddy. Let him do whatever he wants. This video is obviously just a montage of different occurrences during one evening of living as the man/the legend. I bet it was shot from a flip cam that Hype Williams whipped out while they were all sitting in Diddy's penthouse drinking Coco Puffs. I don't try and understand these things. It's too mystical for my mind.
