What a year it’s been for Polo G. Back in June, the Chicago star dropped off his third studio LP Hall of Fame, which came with 20 tracks and additional features from the Kid LAROI, Lil Durk, Lil Wayne, G Herbo, Rod Wave, Nicki Minaj, Young Thug, Roddy Ricch, and more. In addition to having crossed the Gold certification mark, Hall of Fame ended up landing Polo G his first number one on the Billboard 200 thanks to an impressive 143,000 album equivalent units sold during its first week of release — it even managed to beat out Migos‘ highly anticipated third installment of their Culture series.
Just last week, Polo then upped the ante with a deluxe edition of said album dubbed Hall of Fame 2.0, which added on 14 songs and additional contributions from Lil Baby, Moneybagg Yo, YungLiv, NLE Choppa, and Lil Tjay. Following a visual from that upgrade for the Michael Jackson-inspired “Bad Man (Smooth Criminal),” fans can now check out another for “Young N Dumb,” a Smatt Sertified, Simon On Da Guitar, yungfuel, and Southside-produced effort that sees him reflecting on his past life and lost loved ones:
“Oh, to be young and dumb, don’t believe in one-on-ones, thirty clip the AR and we love them drums, from where niggas die, gotta be smart and keep you a gun, my homie died, heard his mama cry, R.I.P. to her son, wasn’t on point, he’d be alive, he ain’t get to run, livin’ every day hopin’ we survive, this the life of the slums, in that black hearse, took his last ride, in the dirt, now he done, so much goin’ on, I can’t feel a thing, I think that I’m numb…”
