21 Savage and J. Cole team up in the highly-anticipated video for their collaboration “a lot.”
The Aisultan Seitov-directed clip opens with a dapper Savage surrounded by his well-dressed family at their lavish estate. In between feasting on a meal and sipping champagne, the Atlanta rapper reflects on less glamorous times and the rough journey that brought them to where they are today. The family affair turns into an all-out celebration, while Cole suits up for his cameo.
“My brother lost his life and it turned me to a beast / My brother got life and it turned me to the streets,” raps 21. “I been through the storm and it turned me to a G / But the other side was sunny, I get paid to rap on beats.”
The song can be found on Savage’s sophomore album i am > i was, which debuted at No. 1 on the Billboard 200 in December.
