See here for a look at Nas' 1994 video for “One Love” and an in-depth interview with its director, Fab 5 Freddy. Freddy used Nas' real-life Queensbridge neighbors for his jail and crowd scenes:
I think the thing when I think back about the “One Love” video now – my process and methodology was very similar to [when I directed Gang Starr’s] “Just to Get a Rep” video. Of course, it was a significantly bigger budget but the core was the same in that all those people [cast in the video] with the exception of one or two were all the real dudes that Nas grew up with in Queensbridge.
