Lupe Fiasco’s “Next To It,” a solid jam that features Ty Dolla $ign, got the video treatment weeks after the song originally dropped. It’s a socially aware record hidden under a club-ready instrumental, so it’s not all that surprising that Fiasco decides to take the unique route with the visuals.
Fiasco, who’s outfitted in leather, rhymes in front of a white background as objects and stereotypes associated with the hip-hop culture show up in isolated focus. Ty Dolla $ign is still in his zone with multiple women frozen next to him.
Tetsuo & Youth is on the way.
