BET has decided they will not air the video for Rick Ross' hit single "Hold Me Back".
One of the most anticipated albums of the year is Rick Ross’ God Forgives, I Don’t, and the lead single from the LP is “Hold Me Back” which has been getting massive airplay. Ross was trying to make a statement with the video which video was shot in the Calio Projects of New Orleans and portrays the impoverished people of the area.
Now it appears that BET has seen the full video and decided not to air it. The video’s director took to twitter to let people know.
Check out the behind the scenes footage of the video below.
So BET rejected Ross' "Hold Me Back" video. It's incredibly sad, because the video is incredibly special & real. You're killing US BET. Smh— TAJ (@TAJ_TPK) July 23, 2012
Everybody ask BET why it's ok for them to play "Boyz N the Hood", "Menace to Society", and "South Central", but not Ross' video. RT RT RT— TAJ (@TAJ_TPK) July 23, 2012
