Polo G has released a gripping video for “Effortless,” a cut from his acclaimed debut album, Die a Legend.
Set in 2014, the visual follows the life of a Chicago teenager who gets caught in the crossfire of a drive-by shooting. He pulls out a gun of his own and fires back in defense, but ends up being arrested by undercover agents. Despite protests and calls for freedom by his community, the teen is eventually put on trial and found guilty.
The clip echoes the themes of “Effortless,” where the 20-year-old rapper recalls the violence he witnessed growing up in Chicago. “These days, they don’t give a fuck / They’ll shoot where the kids playin’ / Judge tryna give ’em life so them gang signs turn to prayer hands / I come from a dark place, I’ll never be there again,” he raps.
Polo G recently teamed up with Lil Poppa to drop a video for “Eternal Living,” a cut from the latter’s Under Investigation 2 project. Watch the visual for “Effortless” here:
