AR-Ab Knows You Don’t Want “No Smoke” in New Video Featuring Velous
Philadelphia's AR-Ab has been relatively quiet lately. He released "How I Do It" and "Still In Trap (Remix)" in addition to inking a deal with Cash Money last year. It looks like he's back on the offensive with his latest visual for "No Smoke," directed by Benny Boom, the director of the Tupac Shakur biopic All Eyez On Me.
The video consists of AR-Ab and a group of associates walking around Philadelphia, showcasing various buildings and locals. The second scene of the video takes place at night in an abandoned warehouse. Throughout the video, AR-Ab drops the fierce bars that he's known for. Starting off his first verse, he reminisces on old money that he's made. "Made a million in the trap house/Count it all till I pass out," he says. In his second verse, he cranks up the imagery. "Just me and my wrist, water whipping that kitchen/VisionWare on the stove, quarter brick in them dishes," he raps, invoking some serious mental images. The song also features a chorus from Grammy nominated producer Velous who's worked with Kanye West and J Cole. On the chorus, he creates some great imagery as well. "I get it straight off the boat/To the red light, green light my hitters ready to go," he raps.
AR-Ab was also involved with a slight beef with Meek Mill recently. After AR-Ab threw a couple of lyrical jabs at Meek over Drake's "Back to Back" beat, the artists' camps began to respond. The beef ended at the beginning of last year after AR-Ab cleared up any bad air on Report Card Radio, “I actually talked to Meek Mills and shit,” AR-Ab said in the interview.
