Gucci Mane, E-40, YBN Cordae and More: Videos This Week
Everyone loves music videos, no matter what genre they prefer. Over here at XXL, we're in the business of hip-hop, so that's what you'll see in this week's video roundup. We've got videos from 2019 XXL Freshmen, along with the latest from the rest of the rap game. Catch up on things and enjoy yourself.
This week, trap legend Gucci Mane dropped his new album, Delusions of Grandeur, with little advance promotion. The first song off it is "Proud of You," and it released with an accompanying video. In the visual, Wop stands on top of one of the many cars in his fleet, while clips of his time at Rolling Loud Miami are mixed in. In short, Wop still knows how to stunt.
E-40's career is a true lesson in longevity. Part of what keeps him so aware of what's going on is his genuine appreciation for younger rappers. His new single, "Chase the Money," produced by ChaseTheMoney and featuring Quavo, Roddy Ricch, ScHoolboy Q and A$AP Ferg, sets 40 Water right alongside rap's current wave. The video is pretty crazy, with an all-girl heist, a shootout, police chases and more.
YBN Cordae, just named a 2019 XXL Freshman, dropped a new video with 2014 XXL Freshman Chance The Rapper. "Bad Idea" shows Cordae as both a homeless man and himself now in his current life, illustrating how quickly fortunes can change. Chance pops up at a cookout and embraces some family and friends time. Cordae also spends some time back home, basking in what his life was like before the fame.
