Complex TV's premiere of Cam'ron and A-Trak's video for "Dipsh*ts" took over the Internet yesterday. "Dipset" was trending, everyone and their mothers praised the A-Trak, Oliver, and Just Blaze production, and JuJu got a starring role. But at the 2:10 mark in the Ricky Saiz-directed video, Chan Marshall aka Cat Power makes a quick cameo sitting on a bench and drinking a Modelo.
We were curious as to how Chan linked up with Cam'ron and A-Trak for the video, so we reached out to her via email yesterday to find out. Chan responded from Europe, and explained that she linked up with the team through director William Strobeck.
"William Strobeck, who did the new skate video "Cherry" for Supreme, hooked me up with Ricky, from Supreme, who shot Cam'ron's video. I rolled up to Tompkins Square Park in the East Village (4 blocks from my place) with my NYTimes & my Modelo & we shot for less than one minute," Chan wrote over email. "The best thing in this business, besides reaching people's hearts, is to get these chances to work with cool, down people. It was my pleasure & I wish Cam'ron & A-Trak the best with their new track!"
An iconic cameo in an iconic video shot in less than a minute. If you haven't already, watch the "Dipsh*ts" video via ComplexTV below:
