Lil Baby, Young Dolph, Key Glock and More: Videos This Week
The production level of hip-hop is quickly approaching the glory days of the late 1990s, where they felt like literal events. Then on the other side, the videos without huge budgets are just as creative as their expensive counterparts. All in all, rap videos are in a good place right now and the future is brighter than ever. Check out some of the newest (and coolest) visuals from your favorite artists below.
Right in tune with this week's theme, Lil Baby decides to get romantic with his video for "Close Friends," which is doing well on the charts. In the visual, the Atlanta MC spends quality time with a lovely lady, wining and dining her around Paris. This more vulnerable side of the Quality Control star is new but works well with the rest of his persona. Who doesn't like seeing love?
Young Dolph doesn't take any breaks. A little bit after evidently admitting that he has a major deal, he shares the video for his single "On God," a cut off of Role Model. The video features him riding around the U.K. with a crew of pretty women, as he's decked out in the finest of designer. As always, Dolph makes looking fly and living well look easy.
Not one to be outdone, Dolph's Paper Route Empire labelmate Key Glock also dropped a video this week, for the Glockoma standout, "Crazy." A straight-jacketed Glock seems to be in a combination of an asylum and a dungeon full of women. Even with his feet and neck shackled, he still gets bars off as if it's a minor inconvenience. What can't Key Glock do?
