If they create a playlist for the top tracks of the year, this has to be on it. The official video for the breakthrough single taken from his self-titled project.
His name came to attention when being managed by Ian Connor, so the A$AP link was inevitable. The song itself has been doing bits, going on to gain a Jay-Z cosign (in that tweet), and one from the New Orleans general himself, Weezy F. Baby, in the form of a cover.
I watched the video a couple times, created under A$AP Rocky’s AWGE creative imprint, and in fairness, the video is basically how the song feels. With all the transitions, and melodic twists and turns, they really are captured within this production. Featuring a rightful cameo from 2Milly, an obvious one from Rocky, who continues to usher young Carti into the game, NY rep, 40 Oz Van, Nav, and the more surprising but intriguing even appearance from 808 Mafia’s Southside aka Sizzle. It’s a cool visual, with it’s trippy cutaways and like the feeling of the song, doesn’t provide any dull moments.
Magnolia has certainly helped Carti, with more visuals to come, potentially for his Lil Uzi featured track, so stay tuned, as the current XXL freshmen looks to continue further.
