Many locals of Grambling, Ruston and Monroe came out on Wednesday to support the local rap group Cook -N- Cash as they shot a video for their song “My Jam (Remix).”
Grambling police blocked off part of R.W.E. Jones, the main street through campus, for the video shoot, which started at 6 p.m. and ended at about 8:30 p.m. Around 300 locals showed up for the filming. The video featured the GSU Tiger Marching Band, the Orchesis Dance Troupe, and many of the locals.
Cook -N- Cash have always called Grambling home, attending the elementary, middle school, high school, and the university. That’s what made them decide to shoot their video, showcasing their roots. And having the World Famous Tiger Marching Band participate was an added attraction, which they feel will also attract attention to their video.
Twenty-one-year-old Quentin “Cook” Cooksey and 19-year-old Steve “Cash” Morgan have been rapping together for eight years and counting. Their fame is beginning to spread beyond North Louisiana. Their CD Cook & Cash Casino is in stores now, and they are preparing to go on tour with Juvenile, Trey Songz, Keyshia Cole, Scarface, and Majic. The tour will begin Nov. 5 in Monroe.
The video shoot will wrap up Friday at Club Premiere in Monroe.
