Another month, another roundup of the hottest new hip hop clips that have dropped over the past four weeks. Here are our picks for April’s edition:
Budding rap up-and-comer BigChildSupport fakes it till he makes it in the video for “Rarri’s & Audi’s.” At first rapping between cardboard cutouts of the two luxury cars that he name-drops, the Texas rapper manifests his dreams and eventually drives off in an actual “Rarri” at the end.
North Carolina upstart DaBaby teams up with Migos star Offset in the sitcom-inspired video for his Baby on Baby album cut “Baby Sitter.” In the zany visual, the duo get mischievous when their step dad leaves them in the care of a babysitter.
It’s a tale of glo-ups for Kyle and Lil Yachty in their light-hearted visual for “Hey Julie!” Flaunting their newfound accomplishments in front of the ladies that never used to look their way, the duo relay their success story in the video as they dodge fairweather friends and have fun at a backyard party.
The first video from Kevin Abstract’s latest album, ARIZONA baby, “Big Wheels” is everything you would expect from the Brockhampton leader. Featuring Abstract as a disembodied head in the sky and against some trippy backdrops, the music video turns out to be quite the formidable first salvo, setting the tone for the eventual album release.
In glorious spud-tastic fashion, Tierra Whack serves up a comical visual for her single, “Unemployed.” In the clip, the Philadelphia rapper plays a chef chopping potatoes that—terrifyingly—become sentient. A zany entry to Tierra Whack’s universe of creative visuals, this music video sits comfortably alongside the 15-minute visual for her 2018 album Whack World.
The second single from Schoolboy Q’s highly anticipated album, Crash Talk, “Chopstix” received the cinematic treatment with visuals that would fit right in The Greatest Showman. The monochrome music video stars Q and Scott as old-timey entertainers who oversee a ballet recital in a packed theater, before Q piques the interest of a woman in the crowd.
Offset and Cardi B recently teamed up for a bright yellow-themed visual for their joint track “Clout,” a cut from Offset’s Father of 4 album. The striking video includes scenes of the prolific power couple rapping while all over each other. Cardi also spits her bars while giving her husband a lap dance and atop a mountain of lemons.
Loosely based on her time as a dancer in strip clubs, the mini-movie for Kash Doll’s “Hustla” is a dark one. The first installment in a series of storytelling music videos, dubbed the Kelly Chronicles, the Detroit rapper stars as Kelly, a dancer who gets embroiled in an increasingly intense series of events. The clip ends in a hotel room shootout that leaves two men dead.
Lil Uzi Vert is back with a new visual for “That’s a Rack,” a single from his highly anticipated album Eternal Atake. In the eye-catching clip, Uzi dances and raps while surrounded by a group of beautiful women posing nude with varying string instruments.
New York rap supergroup Beast Coast serve a dark visual for their debut single “Left Hand.” The video, which takes place inside a gothic mansion, follows the rappers as they swap their sharp flows amongst flickering candles all while indulging in blunts, money and some rudimentary chemistry experiments.
