Freddie Gibbs and Benny the Butcher party on a boat in Miami.
The album was both Gibbs’ and The Alchemist’s highest-charting album to date, earning 30,000 album-equivalent units in its first week, and debuting at number 15 on the Billboard 200. The “Frank Lucas” video comes on the heels of videos for “1985” and “Scottie Beam,” featuring Rick Ross. The latter’s video, which drew heavy inspiration from the Lena Waithe-directed 2019 film Queen & Slim, was also filmed in the Sunshine State.
Despite the pandemic, Freddie and Benny found some time to grab a speedboat and cruise the waters in Miami, with bottles of champagne and vixens in tow. Gibbs conveniently stops in front of a mural of himself, complete with a Pimp C-esque fur coat. Given the bleak tenor of the Alchemist-produced track, the Will Gates-directed video is a picturesque, sunny affair.
Benny the Butcher is fresh off a guest appearance on his new Griselda labelmate Armani Caesar’s single “Simply Done.” The video for that track dropped on Wednesday as well. Three weeks ago, Will Gates posted footage of he and Gibbs in the studio, working on more new music. Could we get yet another Gibbs’ project before the end of 2020? Stay tuned for further updates.
