There’s a new rap video almost every day; it’s pretty difficult to stay up-to-date and know what drops when. Snippets on social media and previews make things a little easier, but there’s still a lot going on. Luckily, XXL has streamlined the entire process. You can trust us, each week, to corral plenty of new hip-hop videos. Enjoy this week’s video roundup.
Future‘s recent album, Future Hendrxx Presents: The Wizrd, was a good way for the Atlanta superstar to jump back into the hip-hop conversation. This week, “Goin Dummi,” one of the project’s best songs, gets a video of its own. For this visual, Future is an underwater king, surrounded by mermaids and living life in the sea. The almost dream-like tone of the song fits the video perfectly, making the way-out theme of it seem normal.
With Rap or Go to the League just a week old, expect 2 Chainz to be heavy on the promo trail. His latest video is for “Money in the Way,” the early, celebratory track from his album. In the visual, 2 Chainz goes through different eras, starting with a bank robbery in the 1960s, to the birth of hip-hop, to the modern day where he puts money back into the community. The video is well-shot and Two Necklace wears some great ‘fits. The video is also an interesting view of how culture changes over the years.
Lil Mosey has been building up buzz over the last year, while putting up crazy streaming numbers in the process. The latest single from his 2018 project, Northsbest, is the Chris Brown-sampling “Greet Her,” with a sweet video to match. In the video, Mosey enters a diner and seems to stumble across the girl of his dreams. He seems to stop time as he takes her around town; there’s also a quick peek at a news story that mentions a meteor hitting Seattle, playing into the ongoing theme that Mosey has arrived from space. They spend the rest of the day together, taking time to enjoy the finer things.
