Director X, (formerly known as Little X) famous for creating videos like Aaliyah and DMX’s “Come Back In One Piece” and Nicki Minaj’s “Your Love,” is back on the scene with a fresh visual for hip-hop’s man of the hour Drake.
While fans recently geared up for the release of Drake’s Rihanna-assisted video for the single “Take Care”, X joined forces with Drizzy to cook up the video for another track off of Take Care titled “HYFR”. Set during a re-enaction of Drake’s bar mitzvah, the video features YMCMB captain Lil Wayne and a cameo from Trey Songz. Oh, and if you need another example of how dope X is, they shot the video in one day!

What was the general feel on the set? Happy, crazy, serious, fun??
