Big Sean + GLC + Chip Tha Ripper – “Okay” Behind the Scenes

Here’s some behind the scenes footage of Big Sean, GLC and Chip Tha Ripper’s video for “Okay” shot at the Wild Hare in Chicago on 2/27/10.


Big Sean & Chip Tha Ripper – “Supa Dupa Lemonade” + “Fat Raps” LIVE @ Wild Hare (Chicago)

Big Sean invaded the Wild Hare here in Chicago, performing some of his biggest hits to date to the packed house. The video above captures the high-energy conclusion of the concert as Big Sean delivered every word to the highly-acclaimed “Supa Dupa Lemonade” and then broke into “Fat Raps” with special guest Chip Tha Ripper. As you can see, the crowd was absolute bedlam for “Supa Dupa Lemonade”, bouncing to the infectious beat and singing word for word with the 2010 XXL Freshman. Seeing how hyped the crowd got for the song really drove home just how big this song blew up. Easily the highlight of the set as “Supa Dupa Lemonade” has been quite the pump up song for us lately.

Chip clearly delivered his bars soon after and the crowd not only vibed with him but also knew all the words as well. Sean does his verse on “Fat Raps” and then concludes the concert with a motivational, uplifting message to the people to go out and accomplish what you want to accomplish!

Big Sean x Va$htie Photoshoot by Dante Marshall

“Last week I had a shoot with Director, Fashion Designer, Party Promoter Va$htie Kola. The approach to this shoot was a little different from the norm and inspired by a spread that I’ve seen two favorite photographers do in the past. (Steven Klein and Richard Avedon) I wanted to make it look as if this celebrity power couple was followed around by paparazzi and the photos were leaked. No, V and Sean are not dating in real life but the images turned out just the way we envisioned.

This was my first time working with Vashtie and I doubt this will be the last. She is such an amazing person to work with and such an inspiring person. The energy she gives off when present is pretty awesome. As you know if you follow my work I work with Sean quite often as I am the photographer that shot his last mixtape, his most recent mixtape which is due to be released mid February as well as his album artwork for the official album that will drop later this year.

We had little time to put the shoot together due both Vashtie and Sean having limited time. Sean finishing up his mixtape and Vashtie only being in town for the day as she had to fly out to Germany the very next morning for a video shoot. With all that going on we still managed to get it done.

here are a few shots from the layout and I am still trying to think of a name for the set so if you have any suggestions feel free to let me know!

Special thanks to the whole team. (makeup) Tina Janel (wardrobe) Brittany Kozerski, Isis, Gumbo, Ashlee Arder and the F.O.K.U.S. Crew”

Great shots! Dante Marshall definitely captured what he intended on getting as each shot is on point. As mentioned above, these two are not dating, but speculation may very well arise from the realism portrayed in these flicks. For those needing a reference of a real Hip Hop power couple, right this way…

sidebar- If you think you got what it takes to name this set, drop a comment.
