Skinnyfromthe9 Drops New Videos for “Space” and “I Drip”
Fresh on the heels of his latest song, "Back When I Was Broke," and video for "Pink Choppas," Skinnyfromthe9 has returned to gift fans with two new videos for the 808-laced singles "Space" and "I Drip."
Continuing his campaign of out-of-this-world visuals, the New Jersey native couples his energized sound with some anime-inspired transformations throughout each video. Space is a flex, feel good song,” Skinnyfromthe9 says of the Jazzbo production.
“The video is about me just having fun. I say some real stuff in the song that I feel like people can relate to, but I also have a good time. This shows another side of me and I'm excited for the world to hear!" the "Love Blast" creator shares.
Alternatively, "I Drip" conveys a much darker tale as it displays the ills of fame.
In the short film, directed by LOUIEKNOWS, a trio of masked female villains kidnap the rapper after a seemingly innocent shopping spree goes array. Skinny ultimately finds himself being held hostage by his captors—who are dripped out in his cash.
Skinny personally shared this about the inspiration behind “I Drip”: “The video is how some girls I talked to all teamed up and set me up. We gave it that Purge look, and it was really dope working with LOUIEKNOWS.”
As the 22-year-old newcomer continues to make his mark with captivating visuals, Skinny is also set to take his talents on the road. Skinnyfromthe9 will be joining 24Hrs on the 3200 Lenox Rd tour with 25 shows across the country this summer. The tour kicks off June 28 in Phoenix, Ariz.
