After weeks of speculation, R&B singer Ray J‘s long-awaited “I Hit It First” music video has finally surfaced and features handfuls of Kim Kardashian references.
In the eye-catching video, Ray wastes no time with the Kim K connections by using a lookalike, recreating their infamous homemade video and even watching a fictional reality television show.
Ray J pays homage to his romantic past in the video for his much-talked-about single “I Hit It First” featuring Bobby Brackins. The R&B playboy enlists the services of a Kim Kardashian look-alike as he recreates a more PG version of his famous sex tape, references her famous booty, and watches a mock reality show much like her E! series. He boasts about his sexual escapades with Kanye West‘s baby mama as he drives through L.A. in his Rolls-Royce and boards a private jet with the fake Kim K. by his side. (Rap-Up)
Last week, Ray ignited talk after he released a teaser for the dicey visual.
In the “I Hit It First” music video, there are various glimpses which would make you believe Ray is banking on toying with Kim Kardashian and Kanye West. For instance, when he makes his line about the unnamed woman going “West,” a road sign for “Chicago” appears, which of course is where Kanye West is from. There is also a shot of Ray laying in a bed with a woman, resembling Kim Kardadshian’s body, wearing heels bent over him, although her face is not shown. To make things ever worse, the teaser ends with the shot of the Chicago road sign. (SOHH)
A week prior, the singer admitted he had no concerns about backlash from KimYe.
“I’m not thinking about that,” Ray said in an interview when asked for his take on Kanye not responding back to him. “We didn’t do this record to get a response from nobody. Like, we did this record for people to go to iTunes, pick the record up, when you hear it in the club, you go crazy. If you want to pop it on your iTunes that’s in your phone and have a crazy conversation about what it is, that’s what we did it for. We run an independent company and we having fun. … The thing about it is I’m not saying anything to nobody. The record speaks for itself. The record is so over-the-top that for us to go into the interviews and go crazy over some sh*t, it’s too much. It’s distasteful.” (“Street Sweepers Radio”)
Earlier this month, Ray denied having any ill feelings toward Mr. West.
“Yeah, he’s a great dude,” Ray said in an interview when asked if he had ever met Ye before. “I have nothing but respect. Even in these interviews I don’t really go into a lot of detail about that situation because it’s not my place to. For me it’s staying focused on the concept at hand and to me that’s Ray J, that’s this wild lifestyle that we live and the experiences that we have within this lifestyle.” (The Boom Box)
