Is Ludacris having real fun in this video for "Rich & Flexin," or just pretending? His eyes are so white and his mean-mugging is so absurd that it's hard to tell. There are cameos by tortilla chips and a skateboard for no reason. Waka shouts out Westin hotels and does a full model's hair flip at 1:55, but he's upstaged by a bunch of sweet-faced teens grabbing their hearts in patriotic salute while dancing. Seems like they would be "Rich & Flexin" producers FKi, but I'm pretty sure they're not. Add their identities to mysteries to be be solved—why "Rich & Flexin" begins with a couple seconds of Justin Timberlake's "Cry Me a River" is another.
