Rick Ross Feat Jay-Z - The Devil is A Lie (Explicit) NEW

From the Independent mind of film maker Ashley Smith and Ash Innovator films, comes what is one of the most controversial and blasphemous music videos i have seen to date.  Playing directly off of the music industry’s speculations of Illuminati and Satanism in Hip Hop and entertainment at large. These images depict the conjuring visions of back room conversation and mind dwellings that we all in some way have entertained over the last 5-7 years in entertainment. It is offensive? Is it Blasphemy? Is it any more guilty than the thoughts we breath life into with our views and conversation? Or, is it just offensive because now it’s a visual reality that you can now lay eyes on?.  Ashley Smith has reached into the minds and conversations of the masses and utilized this bold and very vocally forward song as a vehicle to put imagery to the uttering and the moral and emotional disposition of the world we live in. A mirror has been turned and a light has been shed. As you sit and consume this visual the very moment you try and become holier the thou and step up on your pulpit, recall the very fact that the Devil is a Liar…

Livewire - Out Of Style Feat. Jim Jones from Ashley Smith Films on Vimeo.

I’m just getting this up and running on my vimeo account. We shot this back in March. The day before Amatus’s Messin video, which was the day my son Tyler came along.

This was a fun shoot, thanks to Livewire I got to meet Jim Jones and Fred the Godson. Both were really cool guys I enjoyed working with. I’m glad for the opportunities Live gives me and I hope for many many more.

This video is dedicated to the memory of Elizabeth Johnson who we lost a few days after the shoot.

Shot on Arri Alexa on sxs cards.
