In addition, he just dropped the music video for the new single “Worth The Weight.” Backed by tribal trap percussion and off-kilter grooves, he vaults from nimble raps into a hypnotic hook. The clip matches these musical twists as he turns up in a tiny village and at a late-night street race. The psychedelic and cinematic visual once again reflects his undeniable unpredictability.
