Best Rap Videos of The Week: Bas, J.Cole, Lil Tjay, Young M.A & More

Our favorite videos of the week include clips from Bas, J.Cole, Fredo Bang, Polo G, Young M.A and more.

Once again we’ve finally made it to Friday. Since we never sway away from our weekly schedule, we’re shelling out the best rap videos worth noting over the past five to seven days.

For this post-holiday lineup, we’re particularly feeling Bas, J. Cole, and Lil Tjay’s linkup for “The Jackie.” The visual is a good time, it features the trio enjoying a beautiful summer day and sliding between the city to Queens.

Another standout video of the week is Fredo Bang and Polo G‘s guttural clip for their collaborative single “Bless His Soul.” Next, Tyler, the Creator releases another imaginative video for a track off of his recent album: “LEMONHEAD.”

Then there’s Curren$y, a fave of ours. On Friday, he dropped a video for a loosie, “Ride” with Scottie ATL. In the visual, he’s really just being himself and we’re not mad at it, he’s seen mostly alone relaxing, kicking back and smoking. Young M.A is also in her bag right now, she shared the clip for a track of off her recent mixtape (Off The Yak), the track is aptly titled “Off The Yak.”

We stumbled across Dave’s “Clash” featuring Stormzy and it’s worth giving a spin. In the video, the UK rapper/singer is flexing alongside his friends. The track is ideal for sharing with your friends who like listening to music that’s not considered mainstream.

Another favorite of ours this week is Protoje‘s “Self Defense.” The Jamaican artist has a knack for releasing catchy singles. Last but not least, rising New York rapper Aurora Anthony also served up his newest single “Cartier.” We’re predicting he might blow up in the coming months.
