Drake and BlocBoy JB Put on for Memphis in New “Look Alive” Video
Every once in a while, Drake links with an up and comer and changes their life forever. Memphis-bred BlocBoy JB is the latest beneficiary of the 6 GOD's blessing.
On Thursday (Feb. 8), just one day after teasing a collaboration with Drizzy, BlocBoy JB uploaded a new song called "Look Alive" and an accompanying video onto his YouTube account. Predictably, the internet lost it when they found out the Toronto rapper was on the track.
In the Fredrivk Ali-filmed video for the Tay Keith-produced banger, Drizzy and BlocBoy bounce around the block and a basketball court as their new song soundtracks their movements. MoneyBagg Yo and some of Drizzy's OVO team pop up at various points of the video.
Throughout the vid, we also see shots of Drake, who's got family ties to Memphis on his father's side, turning in his own version of the wind-it-up dance. BlocBoy JB's made those moves popular in recent months, and it's been all the rage on social media.
Of course, Drizzy also brings some quotable bars to the affair. "Pushed me to the edge, so it really ain't my muthafuckin' fault, man/I'm not to blame, man/The fucking industry is cutthroat, I'm not the same man/I'm not gonna let you check the tag, now I'm rocking name brand," he spits on the track, for which he also supplies a hook.
For his part, BlocBoy serves up a nice Drizzy name-drop. "Bitch, come through, you, and you/I'ma get the money, D-D-Drizzy get the loot/Pull up with that Draco/Play with Drake and I'ma shoot/My weapon be an instrument, man I'll blow you like a flute," he spits.
