Best Videos To Drop Last Week: Ab-Soul, Freddie Gibbs, Gloss Up & More

Last week video releases from Ab-Soul, Freddie Gibbs, Headie One, and Gloss Up were on our radar.

Ab-Soul and SiR share the introspective video for "It Be Like That."

Freddie Gibbs releases the video for "Rabbit Vision." Gloss Up shares "BestFrenn" featuring GloRilla.

And Kelela returns with "Contact."

Ab-Soul, SiR – “It Be Like That”

In Ab-Soul’s “It Be Like That” featuring SiR he visualizes isolation and contemplation on life. He’s also coming to terms with life as it is, additionally, he’s allowing himself to find happiness. Happiness is symbolized in all of the light that is shown in the video: light creeping out via the sun on the beach.

Freddie Gibbs – “Rabbit Vision”

Freddie Gibbs’ camp leans into documentary-style shooting for “Rabbit Vision.” Also, amid these shots, they’ve spliced in some tour moments that are meaningful to him. This makes for a solid clip worthy of this week’s roundup.

Headie One – “Martin’s Sofa”

In Headie One’s clip for “Martin’s Sofa” we’re able to view the duality of dreaming and contemplation while living amidst a shady setting. The hustle lifestyle is what will led him to success and that’s perfectly emphasized. But what’s also given some light is how he is trying to escape the darker sides of where he’s from.

Gloss Up, GloRilla – “BestFrenn”

Memphis’ Gloss Up and GloRilla link up for a video inspired by ‘90s and ‘00s WWE moments – the clip is indicative of how they’re slowly but surely taking over the female rap game. Gloss Up serves up some hard-hitting rhymes before her best friend annihilates the trap-heavy beat. It’s so fun to see two women in rap supporting each other.

Kelela – “Contact”

Kelela’s “Contact” subverts the idea of going out and pushes the agenda that she’s been spending a lot of time inside to prep herself for what’s on the horizon. It’s a stunning depiction that uniquely preps her fans for the new era she’s ushering in.
