Meet a Guy Who Puts Those 'Big Booty Bitches' in Rap Videos

If you're the type of person whose dream job involves being in a Dizzee Rascal video, this VICE interview with a man whose profession it is to cast music videos gets you one step closer to figuring out exactly how to quit your day job and spend your life shaking your junk.

Self-described lover of asses Wilbert L. Cooper interviewed Jeff Janvier, one of the men who started Face Time Agency, which Cooper explains has in only two years "become one of the only major casting agencies in NYC dedicated to urban models for music videos." In fact, Face Time cast the most recent The-Dream video that you may have read about. Here's how to impress a guy like Janvier:

First off: You don't actually have to have a big booty!

  • "We only put big-booty girls in the videos that require big-booty girls. But it’s more complex. Like sometimes you need a big butt that knows how to dance, or be really sexy."

But you have to be attractive

  • "Nobody associated with my company will be even semi-attractive. I do have a bunch of girls that I’m nice to and will allow to come to the set and be extras. But as far as the lead and special females, they all have to meet a standard of sex appeal."

And also be low-maintenance

  • "Some girls get upset at me because I can’t utilize them. It gets to the point where I get harassed or event [sic] threatened. This job ain’t as easy, but I make it work....There are trials and tribulations I have to deal with, but I’ve been doing it for so long, it doesn’t affect me."

Definitely dn't be desperate

  • " I don’t deal with females who are willing to do whatever to get in the game."

Don't think this is going to be your career and don't start too young

  • You should consider being in videos as a jumping off point for your brand. Janvier suggests that you "take it up as a hobby" if you're still in high school.

And if after all this, you're calling them video hoes, you shouldn't be

"That stems from haters. When I say hater, I mean girls that were not able to be in the videos started that terminology. Now of course there are girls that act out that stereotype because they do some things. But it all originated from girls who weren’t able to be in the videos who started saying 'Oh this girl had to do this and that' to be in the video. But you won't say Halle Berry’s a ho, even though Halle Berry is one of those who had to go above and beyond to get where she’s at? It’s a man’s world so there are a lot of things that aren’t as easy for females as they are for men. Its part of the game and it comes down to whether they want to play it or not."

Janvier also says that his most difficult job was casting the video for "Birthday Song" with Kanye West and 2 Chainz (lyrics include "All I want for my birthday is a big booty ho"), because he had to find "exotic big-booty girls" but also clowns and midgets. And because you're wondering:

"The director was the one really into the midgets. Kanye was more focused on the big-booty girls."

Yeah, we know.
