WATCH IT: DJ Khaled "Out Here Grindin"

KhaledRick Ross Nobody does the modern collabo video bigger and better than star producer DJ Khaled. Not only does this green screen flight of fancy by director Gil Green and post house pLot feature star turns by Akon, Rick Ross, Plies, Ace Hood, Lil Boosie and Trick Daddy, there's also cameos by T-Pain, Fat Joe, Travis from Gym Class Heroes and on and on and on. The overall vibe is way larger than life — "Global," as Khaled would put it — with the hyper-reality akin to a comic book version of the posthumous Biggie collabo clip with Puff Daddy and Busta Rhymes for "Victory." Highlights include the suddenly in the news Rick Ross in a very sedentary singing in the rain routine, Ace Hood in a death-defying car race across the bridge, and a recurring motif with Akon and Khaled overseeing this veritable Gotham City of hip-hop mayhem. --> watch "Out Here Grindin" via Quicktime or YouTube
