42 Dugg and Roddy Ricch have unleashed the music video for their track, “4 Da Gang.”
Befitting the song’s themes, the video is a cinematic take on loyalty. It opens with Ricch being questioned by authorities as Dugg plots his escape—and arranges for the residents of a junkyard to ambush the agents holding his collaborator captive.
As the group trap the agents, Ricch escapes, and the two MCs rap in front of a burning confederate flag. “Tied from the D to LA / Always keep it a hunnid K,” they rap on the refrain, repping their two cities of Detroit and Los Angeles.
The video’s production was not without its mishaps: a shooting occurred on the set of the video in downtown Atlanta in February. Both rappers were not hurt, though three men sustained injuries at the scene. Alabama rapper OMB Peezy was later arrested on charges of aggravated assault.
The video comes off a fruitful Grammy season for Roddy Ricch. The Compton rapper scored a nomination for Record of The Year for his collaboration with DaBaby on “Rockstar,” while his multi-platinum hit “The Box” also bagged him a nomination for Song of the Year.
On the other hand, last year 42 Dugg released his latest full-length album, Young & Turnt, Vol 2, which later received a deluxe edition. Its original tracklist featured the likes of Lil Baby, Babyface Ray, and Yo Gotti. In a recent interview with Complex, he has also teased an upcoming collaboration with Tyler, the Creator.
