Expensive Videos for Free Music

The mere existence of this video at this juncture is indicative of immensely odd marketing tactics. “Ciroc Star” was off of Chester French’s (free) mixtape Jacques Jams which dropped close to a year ago. In that time, CF has put out an actual (not free) album, Love the Future. Why not drop a video off of the pay album? Personally, I can’t really complain, as Jacques Jams was one of 2009’s best sleeper hits. “Ciroc Star”–while a ridiculous testament to Diddy’s shameless entrepreneurship–was one of the best tracks on the mixtape, sans Jada’s garbage verse.
