A new music video appeared on DaBaby’s official YouTube account this afternoon, but it wasn’t for a song performed by the now well-known rapper himself. Upon clicking the link, viewers are met with the heat of a newcomer, North Carolina’s very own Wisdom, who’s the self-proclaimed “best artist/rapper drafted outta Charlotte.” In the DaBaby-directed visual, Wisdom’s vocals ease listeners in before flows into his rapid-fire verse:
A whole lotta cash, a whole lotta dranks now. A whole lotta, a whole lotta. K’s, glocks, Drac’s, we pop ‘em. Show me you real, what’s the problem? He look like he gon’ play, we gon’ rob him. We the hottest young gang, we poppin’.
It’s clear to see why a church setting was selected for the visual, as Wisdom’s vocals for the track’s intro, hook, and outro are smooth and soulful enough to place him in a choir. As the visual progresses, it sees joyful churchgoers all pumping their guns in the air, dancing in the aisle while taking turns in the spotlight, and praising aloud. As the offering basket is being passed around, people begin to place their weapons in it. As expected, head honcho DaBaby makes a cameo as well.
The music video is a Billion Dollar Baby Entertainment production. BDB Ent. is an investment DaBaby put his heart into after he rose to fame and wanted to use his resources to put on for his city and uplift the talent coming out of the streets that raised him. “It’s like a talented person playing for an NBA team in a small city,” he previously said about the investment. “The people in the city, they’ve never seen it before, so they’re not as quick to latch on and support it. In Charlotte, I really had to kick down doors. I always said I’d get it back ten-fold, and it happened.”
