Ashanti “Baby” (2002)

Directed by: Nia Long

Also directed videos for: Yolanda Adams

Complex says: Not only did she star in this video, but Nia Long shared directing credits with Irv Gotti. An MTV article about the video noted Long "dictated how the shots should be filmed." Which we take to mean she just yelled a bunch of shit at people a.k.a. directing.
