Fully Lit: Selfish Ways Releases New Single ‘LITLIFE’, Featuring Maahez

What’s your definition of living a lit life? For Selfish Ways, it’s more than just the trappings of wealth, it’s found in the little things. Comprising Prince Riley and King Riley, Selfish Ways are joined on their new single, ‘LITLIFE’ by the Latin Grammy nominated producer, MAAHEZ.

Sure, there’s lots of the flashy in the video for ‘LITLIFE’ – expensive cars, clothing, and a gorgeous mansion in the Los Angeles hillside. But ask Selfish Ways what they think, and they’ll tell you tat all that stuff comes second. The real lit life is their brotherly chemistry, and their girlfriends, as they enjoy a fun time in Los Angeles.

Prince and King Riley, from South Carolina, have joined forces on ‘LITLIFE’ with Cuban-born, Miami-based, Latin Grammy-nominated producer MAAHEZ and have come up with a track that effortlessly erases all boundaries between hip-hop, club music, and island soul. The music video, shot by Castro Tarantino, is set at the world famous skate park on Venice Beach – arguably one of the most “lit” places in the world. Prince and King are joined by their girlfriends, and they’re seen having a great time just skating around on a perfect day, in the California sunshine. Later, MAHEEZ joins them, as they visit 777 Sarbonne Road in Bel-Air – a 7 bedroom mansion up for sale with an asking price of $87,777,777. The house has arguably the greatest views of Los Angeles, stretching from the San Gabriel Mountains to the Channel Islands. Lucky 7 features in not just the street address, the bedrooms, and the asking price, but also in many of the home’s architectural details, which were designed in measurements that are multiples of seven. The crew take a swim in the property’s spectacular swimming pool, overlooking Los Angeles after dark. While all this is gorgeous, the most lit part of their lives is being together.
