This week’s best rap video lineup features a few of some of the genre’s most promising acts. But, the list we’ve compiled also includes some names that grew in notoriety over the years.
Kicking things off we’re highlighting Yung Baby Tate’s exciting visual for “Eenie Meenie,” her newest single from her After The Rain: Deluxe EP. In it Yung Baby Tate takes center stage and shines effortlessly as she decides who she’s going home with. Fousheé‘s “my slime” video is a love letter that we particularly enjoy, it’s also a new single fresh off of her debut release time machine, out today.
Next up, J. Cole is back again with another video from his acclaimed The Off Season album, “punchin the clock.” Evidently, he recorded numerous clips while he was on his New York press run, we’re not mad at that, especially since the visuals have been compelling. Then there’s Lil Yachty who once again is dropping off a loosie “Plastic” with Icewear Vezzo & Rio Da Yung OG. One word: hard.
Shifting gears a bit, Lil Baby and Lil Durk hop into their proverbial bag and release a video for “Voice of the Heroes” the lead single off their new collaborative project with the same name. Roddy Ricch who’s been on serving up features recently finally drops his own song: “Late At Night.” It’s kind of a melodic love song, we’ll take it.
Summer anthems are evidently starting to take off. Ty Dolla $ign, Jack Harlow and 24kGoldn link up for “I Won.” We can see it finding its way on a myriad of playlists during the warmer months. Michigan native Yn Jay also shares a catchy track “Ashtray” offering up a laidback option proving why he’s one to watch right now.
Last but certainly not least, Yo Gotti just released “Drop” with DaBaby. The video is cheeky, but we’re just glad Gotti is sharing a track that’s ideal for summertime. It’s just as catchy as his 2017 hit “Rake It Up.”
