Lud Foe “Show U Off” Video Featuring Lil Uzi Vert: Watch
Lud Foe links with Lil Uzi Vert for "Show U Off," a new video in support of a song that's practically hand-crafted for the Billboard Hot 100. XXL's got the exclusive premiere.
The new Jered Harrison-directed visual is an animated one that features cartoon versions of Foe and Uzi bouncing around while taking the idea of "saving" a stripper to a new level. As Foe's cartoon counterpart is kicking it in the strip club, three evil fembots burst in to ruin the night. Following a shootout where we can see bullets flying from the breasts of the fembots (a la Austin Powers: International Man of Mystery), Foe busts back and takes the object of his affection from the club to ride off into the sunset.
Foe says it's Harrison's previous work that led him to reach out to see if he could handle the video for "Show U Off." "I've seen a lot of his animated work with other artists and I thought he'd be dope for the visual I was looking for," Foe tells XXL.
While the video for "Show U Off" is a somewhat unpredictable one, the sentiment that inspired it is pretty straightforward. "The inspiration for the music video was to really focus on our love for the ladies," Foe reveals.
Quite naturally, a love of the ladies is something that rings through loud and clear on the song itself, too. On the track, both Foe and Uzi croon on about women they hope to make their's in one way or another.
"I'm really, I'm really so in love with you girl/No I don't ever need no substitute girl," Lud Foe sings on the track. "When I get off this tour, I got something for you girl/Put VVS diamonds on her, she don't do pearls!"
For his part, Uzi comes in with a healthy dose of arrogance, letting a woman know he's feeling her while reminding her that he's a different caliber of man.
"I really, I really wanna show you off girl/Rockstar nigga—know you heard of me," Uzi spits on the track. "I'm so fly, these bum ass niggas wanna murder me/I pick your bitch up in my whip, she get that service fee!"
"Show U Off" is a song where fans can hear some strong chemistry between Lud Foe and Lil Uzi Vert. Foe says the song came from a place of mutual fandom.
"Uzi and I linked up the old school way—we've both been fans of each other's music," Foe offers. "Through mutual friends and a FaceTime call, we made 'Show U Off' happen."
"Show U Off" and the song's accompanying visual arrives nearly eight months after Lud Foe's Boochie Gang, a 15-track mixtape that features appearances by Juicy J, G Herbo, Mozzy and SG Batman.
